Attacking the Gujarat model of development, Rahul Gandhi today accused Narendra Modi of favouring a few industrialists, one of whom has grown from a turnover of Rs 3,000 crore to Rs 40,000 crore.

During an interview with Aajtak channel telecast tonight, Rahul did not name any industrial house in this regard but has recent days been attacking the Adani group perceived close to the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate.

"When Gujarat grew, it was because of the small industries, because of movements like Amul and that is its strength. Now you see the Gujarat model, the turnover of one

industrialist has grown from Rs 3,000 crore to Rs 40,000 crore," the Congress Vice President said.

He went on to add that Modi's economic model is that the "entire money of the state should be given to two-three persons. This mindset is also dangerous for the country. I keep fighting against such mindset."
