Rahul Gandhi thanks BJP, says 2014 poll defeat an eye-opener

Amit Shah

At Nadiad, he criticised Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, suggesting that demonitisation only proved to be advantageous for the BJP.

Congress leaders dismissed Amit Shah's attacks saying that it is nothing but a tactic to divert the attention from the questions raised about his son Jay Shah's business operations. She also added that instead of wasting his time hurting the feelings of the people of Gujarat and making fun od the development, he should rather focus on his constituency Amethi as it needs more development.

Maintaining that there are two types of development models in the country - "Gandhi-Nehru Parivar" and "Modi Model" - Shah said that he has already said what the Gandhi-Nehru family has done till now. Chief minister Yogi Adityanath and state party chief Mahendra Nath Pandey were present on the occasion.

"Rahul baba... you ask what Modiji had done in three years. yeh Amethi ki janata teen peedhi ka hisaab maangti hai aapse... teen peedhi tak aapne kya kiya?"

Gujarat Congress spokesman Manish Doshi earlier said that congress party was "deliberately projected as anti-Hindu" by the BJP and the RSS.

"The people of Gujarat know about the development of their state..."

State unit of Jammu and Kashmir and Rajasthan of the Congress on Tuesday passed separate resolutions requesting Rahul Gandhi to take over as the Party President.

"The Nehru-Gandhi family, which was pressuring banks to give loans to Vijay Mallya in return of airline upgrades is now questioning others", she said.

Many in the Congress would believe that time has come to turn the tide as GST has caused a massive economic problem to the traders and in organised sectors.

"A vast stretch of land was given by farmers long back for construction of the Samrat cycle factory".

She said Mr Gandhi would lose elections and the lotus will finally bloom in Amethi in 2019. "When nothing much happened, there is an effort to occupy the land illegally and despite eviction notice they are not letting the land go". It is in this context, Congress must revaluate whether high pitched anti-Modi campaigns serves well in Gujarat or a more low-key campaign, using the faces of state faces which avoids polarisation on the basis of personality.

The Congress leader has been stopping on the way, talking to people, waving at them and promising change.
