However, the Congress has strongly objected to the remarks made by the prime minister.

In a series of tweets, Chidambaram had said: "EC will be recalled from its extended holiday after Gujarat Govt has announced all concessions and freebies". While the tenure of the incumbent Himachal assembly is set to end on January 7, the term for Gujarat Vidhan Sabha ends on January 27.

Surjewala accused Modi of insulting tradition by speaking with his back to the shrine and asked him to show his devotion the way Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi had done by walking 18 km to the shrine.
