Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Sunday attacked Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and said his entertaining speeches could even 'shut' the TV show of a popular standup comedian.


"You have seen the Kapil Sharma TV serial. That will shut and TV will show these speeches by Congress leaders for entertainment," Modi said while addressing a rally in Jhasi.

Hitting out at Gandhi over his 'Lokayukta' remark, Modi said: "Lokayukta also submitted a report & that report indicts a former CM whose son is a minister in the UPA. Amarsinh ji is no longer with us. Keeping that respect in mind, we were silent but please see the lies you spread."

Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said the Gujarat Chief Minister would have landed up in jail, had there been a Lokayukta in his state.

"There are no Lokayukta and RTI Commissioners here. In other states, you will find Lokayuktas but in Gujarat there is no Lokayukta, the authority which catches corrupt leaders," Rahul Gandhi aid while addressing a rally in Gujarat.

"The day Lokayukta is constituted here...the day when RTI commissioners are appointed, your chowkidar (watchman) will go inside jail," Rahul Gandhi said.

Earlier, his mother and Congress supremo Sonia Gandhi at an election rally in Punjab said, "God save India from the Gujarat model of development."

"God save the country from this sort of model," said Sonia Gandhi. "It has many problems," she said.
