Modi doing politics of anger: Rahul Gandhi

Posted on Dec 15, 06:10PM | IBNS

Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi on Saturday attacked Narendra Modi and said the Gujarat Chief Minister is indulging in 'politics of anger'.

"Modi is doing politics of anger. My father (Rajiv Gandhi), grandmother (Indira Gandhi) were killed. I have no anger. I have given up my anger," Gandhi said while addressing a rally at Bhuj city in Gujarat's Kutch district.

"The person who is running the state, the person who claims that he has developed the state, has anger. You can't run a state with anger," Gandhi said.

Slamming Modi, Gandhi said: "The BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) is claiming that only one person is responsible for development of Gujarat and its people are not responsible for it. Modi is doing very good marketing."

Pertinently, Saturday is the last day of campaigning for the second and last phase of Gujarat Assembly Elections.

Modi on Thursday attacked Gandhi, saying that even though his father was not a Prime Minister, he was still loved by the people.

"Rahul Gandhi, my father was not the PM. He was not even a sarpanch. Still people love me," Modi said at a rally in Siddhpur in Patan district in north Gujarat, making a reference to Gandhi's father, former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Gujarat voted peacefully as around 68 percent voters cast their ballots for the first phase of the assembly elections in Gujarat on Thursday, with a second phase scheduled for Monday and results on Dec 20.
