Narendra Modi in Gujarat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has come down heavily on the Congress and claimed that the party wanted to jail him. “On one side there are parties who thrive on the dynasty, on the other hand, there is an ideology based party,” PM Modi said. He said this while addressing a mega a gathering of BJP workers in Gujarat’s Gandhinagar on Monday. Speaking at the ‘Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan’, PM Modi had taken a jibe at the poor state of affairs in Congress. PM Modi said, “when the results of UP assembly elections were announced, the political analysts advised opposition to focus on 2024 instead of 2019.” PM Modi slammed Congress for blaming BJP’s developmental projects. “Congress blamed us in every possible manner. But when they saw there was no impact on us, they started blaming our development works,” the PM said.

PM Modi further ‘challenged’ Congress to fight the elections on the issue of development. “I challenge Congress to fight on the issue of development,” he said, adding, “Communalism, casteism, and misleading people are Congress party’s tool to contest elections.”

“Those questioning us on development of Gujarat must recall what their contribution has been for the state’s progress,” PM said. “When nothing worked for Congress, they started abusing development,” he further said.

Speaking on the issue of GST, Modi said that Congress is an equal partner in GST decisions and the party should not spread lies on GST. “Government is actively striving to remove any issues that GST may have & thousands of new businessmen are registering for it,” PM Modi said. He added that BJP is an organization committed to serve the nation. Modi further appreciated BJP chief Amit Shah for taking the party to new heights.
