Congress calls for shutdown in Gujarat against 'Vibrant Gujarat Summit'

Ahmedabad, Jan 10 (ANI): Congress party has called for a shutdown on Saturday in Gujarat protesting against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party's proposed "Vibrant Gujarat Summit" beginning Sunday. Congress activists have been holding protests at important government installations across the state.
