Narendra Modi fierce attack on Congress-Gandhians ahead of Gujarat elections

Prime Minister Narendra Modi being felicitated at a public meeting in his hometown Vadnagar

Modi dug deep into the past, alleging that from Vallabhbhai Patel, India's first home minister, to former Prime Minister Morarji Desai and Madhavsinh Solanki, the Congress chief minister who scripted the party's biggest victory in Gujarat so far in 1985, they were all finished politically by the Congress because they were Gujaratis. "How can these corrupt leaders teach the lesson of development to Gujarat?". What about those within Gujarat like the Patils taking part in anti-BJP rallies or Dalits speaking out against Modi or traders rebelling against the demonetisation and the GST?

"I had expected them to fight this election on the issue of development, but they are not doing that".

Seven months after Assembly election results of five states-UP, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa and Manipur-were declared where Modi wave (except for Punjab) once again created its magic for the BJP, things do not look so rosy for the saffron party as the country will shortly see Assembly elections in Himachal Pradesh on November 9 and Gujarat in December (the Election Commission is yet to declare dates for the Gujarat polls). "They don't have it in them to win on the issue of development". So the Congress should not spread misinformation. Hardik Patel, the quota stir spearhead, had welcomed Rahul Gandhi on a recent visit to Gujarat. They tried to blame us on all fronts. The people gave them an apt reply. "The highest number of MPs from rural areas are of the BJP", he said.

On his last visit on October 7 and October 8, he came with a bouquet of schemes worth Rs 12,000 crore, including foundation laying of a greenfield Rajkot Airport, Okha-Bet Dwarka cable bridge and Bhadbhut Narmada barrage.

Rex Tillerson Downplays His Tensions with President Trump
Asked about a leading GOP senator's comment - "You can not publicly castrate your own secretary of state" - Tillerson would have none of it.

The prime minister alleged that when he launched the Sujalam Sufalam project, which would reach water that was going waste by draining into the sea, to parched areas, the the Congress government in neighbouring Rajasthan objected to it.

The Prime Minister accused Congress of spreading lies and creating an atmosphere of pessimism.

"Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot wrote to us that you can not use the water without our permission", he said.

"The Congress' only agenda is to save one family", he said.
