Gujarat is slated to go to polls in two phases - on December 9 and 14.

BJP sources said in Lucknow on Monday said the newly-elected Mayors along with Amethi Nagar Panchayat chairperson Chandrama Devi and Nagar Panchayat Jais chief Chandrama Prasad will meet the Prime Minister at his official residence. "They are all devoted party workers and will be used where ever the party needs them", BJP state general secretary Vijay Bahadur Pathak told PTI.
