Modi urges UPA to adopt policies similar to Gujarat to ensure national development
Taking on the Congress party through a fresh tweet, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday suggested that the UPA Government adopt policies like Gujarat to ensure rapid development of the country.
Earlier this morning, Modi alleged the UPA Government of step-motherly behaviour with the state on tweeter and wrote that the Congress always shows anti-Gujarat mindset.
Addressing a public gathering after offering prayers at the famous Somnath Temple at Veraval, as a part of his campaign for the nearing state assembly election Modi appealed to the people to only look at his developmental work and vote for the BJP and said: "Gujarat poll result would give direction to nation."
Attacking Congress he said, "They (Congress) will face the worst defeat in Gujarat. The entire country is being crushed under the sins committed by the UPA Government at the Centre. Congress's misrule, corruption, inflation and neglect of the common man will result in a unprecedented victory for the BJP."
Referring to Congress' advertisement campaign based on the theme 'Disha Badlo, Dasha Badlo (Change the direction, change the situation), he said the Congress itself need to change its direction because they will never reach Gandhinagar.
Lashing out at Congress for allegedly using photos of a malnourished child from Sri Lanka in its advertisement, Modi said: "This shows that the Congress has decided to defame the state at any cost."
Modi, who is looking at a third consecutive term at the helm in Gujarat, is expected release BJP's election manifesto on Monday in Ahmedabad.
Leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley and other Gujarat BJP leaders will also be present at the occasion.
He is contesting from Ahmedabad's Maninagar seat, from where, Shweta Bhatt wife of suspended IPS officer Sanjiv Bhatt, is set to challenge him as the Congress candidate.
