Rahul should wear Gujarati, not Italian spectacles to see development: Amit Shah

Posted October 03, 2017

"We demand answer for three generations of Gandhi family to people of Gujarat; to Sardar Patel; to Morarji Desai", Shah said.

"If Rahul dreams about Gujarat then he should visit Porbandar, not Italy for fulfilling those dreams".

Rahul Gandhi can not see the progress Gujarat has made under BJP rule as his vision is being blocked by his Italian eyewear, party chief Amit Shah said on Monday as he countered the Congress vice president's criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "fake MoU model" in the poll-bound western state.

For the key assembly elections, the Congress - which hopes to leverage any anti-incumbency sentiment against the BJP, which has ruled Gujarat for two decades straight - has designed its attack around development, coining the slogan "Vikas Gando Thayu Chhe or development gone crazy" as it points to potholed roads and skewed development.

The "Sonia-Manmohan Singh" government, during the UPA's 10-year rule, did "great" injustice to Gujarat by holding up the Narmada dam project, he alleged.

Moscow denies any such activity, and Trump dismissed any talk of such collusion. The company also unearthed an additional 179 related or linked accounts .

"The Congress is still dreaming about winning the polls".

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) today launched its poll campaign in Gujarat, ahead of the assembly elections in the state. But if you are dreaming about winning the polls, you can not go for a vacation in the US. "This model is Gujarat's pride", Shah said. To win polls, you need to do some hard work. Today's yatra passed through Saurashtra and south Gujarat.

The BJP's Gujarat Gaurav Yatra will continue till October 15 and during this period 138 jan sabhas will be addressed.

Two motorised raths have been prepared to facilitate party state president Jitu Vaghani and deputy chief minister Nitin Patel's trip through the state and several SUVs painted in the colour of the party will travel along with them during the march. Mr Shah has set his party a target of winning 150 of the state's 182 seats.

Modi and Shah will remain present at the concluding ceremony of the yatra, the place for which is yet to be decided.
