The election to Gujarat Assembly is expected to be over before the results of the Himachal Pradesh polls are declared on December 18. The Election Commission last week announced date for Himachal Pradesh election but defer the same for Gujarat for the first time since 1998.
The Congress has criticised the decision of the Election Commission alleging that the poll body buckled under the pressure from PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah. The Congress alleged that the Election Commission has given the Centre and the BJP government of Gujarat to announce sops for the state on the eve of the Assembly polls.

The prime minister will address the 'Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan' being organised by the state BJP to celebrate the conclusion of the saffron party's 'Gujarat Gaurav Yatra' (march for Gujarat's honour).
"I bow to the people of Gujarat for blessing BJP for decades. We will always fulfil the dreams of every Gujarati with full strength and vigour," Modi tweeted ahead of his visit.

The march covered a distance of around 4,471 kilometres, spread over 149 of the 182 Assembly constituencies in the state, state BJP chief Jitu Vaghani said.
"Tomorrow, the prime minister will give his guidance to around seven lakh BJP workers at the Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan to be held in Bhat village," he said. Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, BJP national president Amit Shah and many other leaders of the party would be present, he added.
