Amit Shah in Amethi: BJP President Amit is at the Congress bastion and Rahul Gandhi’s home constituency Amethi today. The BJP President is in Amethi to launch development schemes. The function is being held at UPSIDC Maidan. Union Minister Smriti Irani and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath are also at the venue. Shah began his speech asking people to strengthen the BJP in Amethi constituency. Shah praised Smriti Irani saying that she comes to Amethi even after losing the Lok Sabha constituency but sitting MP Rahul Gandhi doesn’t.BJP National President Amit Shah starts addressing the Amethi rally. Shah says, “I am here today because of Smriti Irani’s invitation. I have come here because I have never seen another constituency that the winning candidate never visits his constituency, but the losing candidate keeps visiting.”

The BJP National President slammed the Congress government for their lacklustre development approach in Amethi. “People of Amethi ask Rahul Gandhi what Congress has done for three generations in Amethi, Amit Shah said. “Today, I want to ask Rahul Gandhi, why does Amethi not have a Collector’s Office, an office of All India Radio and no development, “added he.

Taking a dig on Rahul Gandhi, Shah said,”Gujarat’s people know the development it has seen, please look at your constituency ‘Rahul Baba’. Again taking a jibe at Gandhi, Shah says may be he (Rahul Gandhi) doesn’t even know how to count till 106, as he listed 106 projects that the Modi government has announced. After Rahul Gandhi, Shah also takes a jibe at former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, saying that at least the BJP has given the nation a ‘Prime Minister who speaks.’
