The decision was taken at the meeting of top leaders of state BJP at the party headquarter in Gandhinagar today, said Gujarat BJP spokesperson I K Jadeja in a release here.

Addressing the meeting, newly-elected state BJP chief Vijay Rupani slammed Congress and other opposition parties for 'supporting anti-national elements' which he said will prove fatal for the country, the release said.

The slogan 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai' is the true identity of BJP, Rupani said. "On our foundation day, BJP workers and leaders will take out Bharat Mata Gaurav Kooch at 18 different places. As anti-national elements are getting active, time has come to rejuvenate the love for our mother nation in the hearts of countrymen and party workers," the release quoted Rupani as saying.

"Party workers will carry tricolour as well as the party flag and chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' during the march...state ministers as well as top party leaders will be present," said state BJP organisation general secretary Bhikhu Dalsaniya.

BJP president Amit Shah would remain present at a farmers rally organized by the party in Surat on March 27, the release added.
