Rahul again hits out at Gujarat development model
Lashing out yet again at the Gujarat model of development, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Saturday said BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi was claiming credit for the work of other people.
Gandhi also alleged that Modi favoured only one industrialist in the state.
"There is a partnership between Modi and Adani," he alleged, asserting that all senior Bharatiya Janata Party leaders like L.K. Advani, now-expelled Jaswant Singh, Yashwant Sinha and Sushma Swaraj were sidelined for Modi's partnership with Adani.
"The money they (Modi government) gave to Adani is being in turn used for his marketing (election campaign). Big posters are coming up all over the country. From where is the money coming... you tell me?" he said at an election rally here.
"This is the Gujarat model. You give all the benefits to one industrialist. We are not against industrialisation," the Congress vice president said.
