The Yatra will culminate in a grand ‘mahasammelan’ on October 16 in the outskirts of Ahmedabad which will witness the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP national chief Amit Shah.

Although the dates of the Gujarat state elections have not been announced, the polls will take place before December 18.
