Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Yogi Adityanath on Saturday appealed to the people to rid Gujarat of the Congress, claiming that this would solve all problems.

He was addressing a rally in support of the BJP candidate in Khambhat town of Anand district on the last day of campaigning for the second and final phase of the Gujarat assembly elections.

Of the total 182 seats in the state assembly, voting was held on 89 on December 1.

Voting will be held on the remaining 93 seats on December 5.

The counting of votes will take place on December 8.

Adityanath termed both the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as a "threat to security and an obstacle to development".

He said, “Mahatma Gandhi had once said that the Congress party should be dissolved after India gets independence.

Now it is your responsibility to do this.

'Congress-mukt' Gujarat will solve all your problems."

Adityanath said that the people of UP had given only two seats to the Congress in the last assembly elections and did not even allow AAP to open its account because they knew that both these parties were a threat to security and a hindrance in development.

He accused the Congress of obstructing the construction of the Somnath temple in Gujarat after the country's independence and the Ram temple in Ayodhya in recent times.

"Today, Gujarat is free from curfew and riots," he claimed.
