Senior Congress leader Shankersinh Vaghela on Sunday “advised” Muslims in the state to be united against the BJP and vote in favour of the Congress or else again “face total ruin” under Narendra Modi.

Addressing a well attended meet organised by the minorities department of the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee at Koba near here,Vaghela said Muslims should remember that the BJP had always made them a poll issue while the Congress always stood for them.

The remark did not go down well with some community members who were heard expressing dismay over the use of such language by Vaghela,who heads the party’s election campaign committee for the next Assemble elections.

Meanwhile,three persons were injured in a scuffle at a checkpost at Sanathal outside Ahmedabad over payment of toll tax by returning party members.
