Modi claimed his government's success in getting loan from Japan and starting the bullet train project had pinched Congress. Seeking to counter objections to Sardar Patel statue in Bharuch, he said it would bring vast growth to the region in the form of tourism.
Prime Minister Modi further dubbed the discord thus exposed within the Congress Party as indicative of its ineffectuality to govern a nation.
He added: "Those who have no internal democracy can't work for people". Media had to ask Indira Ji before publishing something. "I want to say to this youngster Shehzad - "you have done a fearless thing but this is sadly what has always happened in Congress", he said. "So, what Shehzad is saying is not unusual, but it is the Congress culture", Modi said. On December 3, Modi would address campaign rallies in Bharuch in south Gujarat and Surendranagar and Rajkot in Saurashtra, state BJP in-charge Bhupender Yadav. A Congress leader has claimed that Modi gave 48,000 crore acre land to an industrialist.
Speaking at a public meeting in Bharuch earlier, Modi pointed out how the Congress was recently defeated badly in the UP civic body elections, the results of which were declared on Saturday. Thanking the people of Rajkot for giving him his fi rst election victory, he said, "While we are creating records of victory, Congress is creating records of defeats".
#In UP, where Congress ruled for decades, the state from where generations of top Congress leaders belong. Congress was wiped out. Political experts opine that the Congress party's rout in UP would have a significant impact in the mindset of voters in Gujarat, where the first phase of polling begins on December 9. Modi's rallies are centred on places where the BJP needs an extra push.
