Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Friday filed his nomination papers for the upcoming state Assembly polls from Maninagar assembly constituency in Ahmedabad.
Minutes before filing the nomination papers, Modi launched his new motto-Vikas, Vishwaas, and Vijay (Development, Trust, and Victory).
Addressing his supporters, the senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said: "We are going to fight the polls on the basis of development and not on the basis of vote-bank politics."
He said Congress will not be able to win the polls by only spending money on poll campaign.
Meanwhile, the Congress has fielded Shweta Bhatt, wife of suspended Gujarat IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, to contest against Modi from Maninagar assembly constituency.
Shweta Bhatt on the same day filed her nomination papers.
Speaking to media, Shweta Bhatt said: "I am going to fight against Modi from Maninagar on a Congress ticket."
Pertinently, Maninagar is a seat from where the Gujarat chief Minister won by a huge margin in 2007.
