Modi vs Rahul Gandhi: Political harakiri for Congress in Gujarat election


The remarks significantly came on a day when BJP chief Amit Shah, along with union minister Smriti Irani and Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, launched a blistering attack on the Gandhis in their stronghold Amethi.

Union Textiles and Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani, who lost the Lok Sabha election to Rahul Gandhi in 2014, took on the three-time MP throwing a challenge to win 2019 elections.

Further attacking Rahul, she said that "the rule of the Congress was a "sultanate of corruption" and now the opposition party is concocting stories to defame the people of Gujarat before the election".

The Congress is asking Prime Minister Modi to remove Shah as the BJP chief and order a probe by Supreme Court judges.

"Why was the VIP zone of the Nehru-Gandhi family deprived of development?"

Rahul Gandhi during his Gujarat visit mocked Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) "vikas" (development) agenda by saying that "vikas" has gone mad in the state after listening to the party's false promises and lies.

After Ahmed Patel's re-election to Rajya Sabha, the confidence of the Congress Party has gone up but it neither has big faces nor a viable leadership in Gujarat which atrophied in the last 15 years.

Trump, on many occasions, has shown his knowledge and love for the diverse communities in America. The president also waited two weeks in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria to visit Puerto Rico .

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.

The Congress vice-president again targetted Amit Shah's controversy-ridden son Jay Shah and said, "Have you heard of Start up India?"

Rahul Gandhi said that (Prime Minister Narendra) Modiji and the BJP onlh talk big about religion, but the doors of the Gujarat government are just open for a few industrialists. Gujarat's people know the development it has seen; please look at your constituency Rahul Baba.

CM Yogi Adityanath said he is trying to develop Amethi and the entire state, media reported. Taking a swipe at Modi for his popular radio programme Mann Ki Baat, Gandhi said that if the Congress came to power in the state they would rather listen to the people.

"The land was given for construction of the Samrat cycle factory". She said the Congress leader was making fun of development in Gujarat but had no answer for the lack of it in his own backyard in Amethi. How many women are there. Have you seen women in their Shakha in shorts?

Commenting on the presence of women leaders in the Congress, Rahul said, "Why are there no women in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS)?".
