Campaigning for the first phase of the Gujarat Assembly elections ended at 5 pm on Tuesday. In the last leg of its campaigning, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) upped the ante with party heavyweights campaigning across the state holding multiple public gatherings in a day. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, union Home minister Amit Shah, BJP national president JP Nadda, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, and Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma were among the many top leaders who led the campaign in the state.

From the Congress party, president Mallikarjun Kharge, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi also campaigned for the party in the high-octane battle.

The state, which has traditionally witnessed a bipolar contest between the BJP and Congress, has a third player this time in the form of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The party has positioned itself as the main contender against the BJP in the state, and Kejriwal has led a massive campaign in the entire state within five months since July.
