NRIs to visit Gujarat for election campaigning for BJP


With the Assembly elections in Gujarat approaching, not only the people of the state but also the non-resident Indians (NRIs) especially Gujaratis are equally excited to choose and vote for their favourite leader and party and 25,000 of them are reaching Gujarat from across the world to campaign for BJP.
Digant Sompura, Convenor of the Foreign Contact Department said, “Whenever elections are to be held in India, people from across the World have their eyes on it. Especially when the elections are in Gujarat, the excitement and curiosity increase due to PM Modi’s Gujarat connection.” This time with the entry of the AAP in Gujarat and the triangular fight, people are all the more curious about the Gujarat elections.
Gujaratis across the world have a special connection with their home state and they do regularly give donations in their villages for the construction of schools, libraries and other development works and hence they have earned respect and a special position amongst their fellow villagers. Using this, the non-resident Gujaratis will campaign in the state and ask their villagers to vote in maximum numbers for the BJP.
Sompura added, “There are about 20 lakh Indians residing in USA, out of which about 11-12 lac are Gujaratis. All these Gujaratis in the USA have a special connection with their home state and hence more and more people are trying to come to the state and will be campaigning for BJP. As per an estimate, the number of NRIs coming here for campaigning will be 25,000.”
Dr Vasudev Patel, National Organisation Secretary of BJP in the USA said, “We have the long-sightedness of PM Narendra Modi who knows what is the power and support of NRI’s.
