Rajasthan Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot is on a two-day visit to Gujarat. He began his scheduled visit to the state on Wednesday to review Congress's preparedness for the state Assembly polls due later this year. Gehlot was supposed to start his three-day Gujarat visit on Tuesday, but he could not arrive in Surat city due to bad weather conditions. 

So instead of three days, Gehlot, the Congress' senior observer for the Gujarat Assembly elections, will be in the state for two days and land at Vadodara on Wednesday to hold meetings with leaders of the party's central zone to review their preparedness for the polls due by the year-end. Later in the day, he will reach Ahmedabad for the north zone meeting. On August 18, he will hold a press conference before going back. South and Saurashtra zone meetings will be planned soon, he said.
