According to Gujarat Congress’ senior leader Shakti Sinh Gohil, Gandhi scion will campaign in Saurashtra from September 25 to September 27.
“To defeat Kaurvas, Pandvas went to Lord Krishna for his blessing and guidance. That’s why we are also starting our party’s poll campaign after seeking Lord Krishna’s blessings,” Gohil told India Today.
