The Congress leader claimed that a false propaganda that Gujarat was making all-round progress has been launched but contrary to it there is rampant corruption in the state, unemployment is very high and there is all round failure.
Gandhi invoked his family's long association with Gujarat and tore into the Modi government's development claims. He, however, consciously avoided taking on the BJP government on charges of communalism and chose instead to punch holes in the chief minister's Gujarat model. Gandhi said that despite claims of a shining Gujarat, the truth was something else. Terming Mahatma Gandhi his guru, Rahul Gandhi said, "Gandhiji taught us to ignore our own dreams and work for others. But in Gujarat aam admi's voice is not heard. Your chief minister does not listen to you."
