While opposition Congress calls it a 'poll gimmick' , Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi is using latest technology to connect with voters this time around. The CM today posted on social networking site twitter that he would speak to people simultaneously across 53 places in the evening.

Modi's twitter post read, "Thanks to 3D technology, I can connect with so many of you at the same time! This evening will interact across 53 places "

The chief minister's official website said that Modi would address people across 106 places of Gujarat through 3D projection technology over the next five days.

Modi first connected with people across four cities of Gujarat using 3D technology on November 18. This was followed by another address on November 29 across 26 places (covering 15 districts), and finally, the chief minister people across 52 places using the medium on December 4.

Gujarat Congress chief Arjun Modhwadia has alleged that the BJP has spent around Rs 500 crore on these '3D gimmicks'. "Where has the money come from? Has Narendra Modi gone somewhere to earn it?", he had asked a few days back.

The Gujarat Congress had filed a complaint with the state election commission alleging in the last week of November for gross violation of the election code of conduct by chief minister Narendra Modi for his poll propaganda simultaneously in four cities using 3D holographic projection technology through satellite broadcast.

The state is going for polls in two phases on December 13 and 17.
