CHOTA UDAIPUR: Leading the party campaign in Gujarat, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi exuded confidence that the party will win in the state. 

"Congress party is going to win elections in Gujarat and no one can stop it. There is a wave (Aandhi aa rahi hai)," Rahul said while addressing a rally in Chotta Udaipur.

He yet again questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party for not releasing a manifesto on what it wants to do for the state. "BJP has not even told you what it wants to do in the state. They haven't even released a manifeso," he said.

On Thursday, the Congress vice president had said that by not coming out with its manifesto, the BJP has shown "unbelievable disrespect" to the people of the state.

"The BJP has shown unbelievable disrespect towards the people of Gujarat. Campaign is over and STILL no mention of a manifesto for the people, no vision and no ideas presented for Gujarat's future," Gandhi said on Twitter.

Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala also hit out at the saffron party, tweeting, "Using 'jumla' (rhetoric) is only their (BJP's) manifesto."

The Congress had released its manifesto for the election last Monday.

'Special category' quota for weaker communities with similar rights enjoyed by OBCs, farm loan waiver, setting up of 'Indira canteens' to provide nutritious food for labourers at Rs 10 are some of the highlights of its manifesto. 

Polling for 89 assembly constituencies in the phase one will be held on December 9. The second phase voting will be held on December 14.
