Yogi Adityanath, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, is set to visit Gujarat for the third time this week.
During his third Gujarat visit, CM Adityanath will address election gatherings for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidates in the districts of Dwarka, Kutch, Morbi, and Surat. CM Adityanath will also attend a roadshow in Surat and pray at the Dwarkadhish temple.

After leaving Dwarka at 1.05 pm, CM Adityanath will reach Rapad Kutch in Gujarat at 2.25 pm to hold an election meeting for the party’s candidates in this assembly till 3.10 pm.
The Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh will then reach Halwad in the Morbi district to conduct a public meeting at Dharrangdhara. Yogi Adityanath’s public meeting in Morbi is then followed by a roadshow from Umiya Dham Temple, Surat in Varchha Assembly from 6.30 pm to 7.15 pm, and will then head to Lucknow from the Surat airport at 7.35 pm.
Adityanath is one of the star campaigners of the BJP for the upcoming Gujarat Assembly elections that are slated to be held in two phases on December 1 and December 5.
Among the other star campaigners for the BJP in Gujarat are Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and outgoing Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel.
Polling in Gujarat will be held for a total of 182 Assembly constituencies.
The BJP has been in control in the state for nearly two decades and aims to reclaim it by a large margin.
However, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has entered the fight in an attempt to expand its national presence following its spectacular Assembly election victory in Punjab.
Kejriwal and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann have headlined rallies and roadshows in the poll-bound state.
Isudan Gadhvi, a member of the party’s highest decision-making body, the National Executive, had previously been named as the party’s CM face for the western state.
Meanwhile, the Congress party is hoping for a victory in the state and is putting its best electoral foot forward in order to unseat the BJP government.
