BJP's Prime ministerial candidate and senior leader LK Advani will file his nomination papers from Gandhinagar on Wednesday.
Gandhinagar contituency will go to polls on April 30. Advani came to the forefront of national politics after the Ram mandir movement in late 80's.
He will file the nomination with a huge rally of supporters and the supporters will be led by Gujrat CM Narender Modi.
Advani will be contesting from the Gandhinagar constituency for the fifth time in a row. He was a winner from the constituency in 1991, 1998, 1999 and 2004. His main rivals are congress nominee Suresh Patel and noted dancer Mallika Sarabhai who is making her electoral debut as an independent candidate, whereas Suresh Patel is a congress MLA from Kalol for the second time.
Tight security arrangements has been made by Gujrat Police. Intelligence agencies have warned of increased threats to Advani.
Advani who had earlier planned to file the papers on April 6, has changed the programme due to his busy poll campaigning schedule in the other states.
