PM, Rahul Gandhi, Hardik trade barbs in Gujarat battle

Rahul Gandhi Says PM Modi A Better Actor Than Amitabh Bachchan

The daily posers to Modi, serialised in Hindi as "22 saalon ka hisaab, Gujarat maange jawaab (Gujarat demands answers for 22 years of rule)" on Twitter, today said, "In 1995, Gujarat had a debt of Rs 9,183 crores". The Patidar community in Morbi region has been pressing the government for reservation in government jobs and colleges for over two years.

On Wednesday, as Modi hit the campaign trail in Morbi, situated in the state's Saurashtra region, he shed the baggage of civility that burdens the shoulders of a Prime Minister and took on his previous avatar - that of the shrill BJP campaigner and political street-fighter. "Cong says it's VP is Hindu & janeu dhari (BRAHMAN) BJP says their Leader Modi is Hindu (& OBC ) This is very esteemed club something like "Old School Boys Network" people like me are denied entry as I am only communal, rest are Secular, Nationalist". Blaming the Congress for taking credit for minor schemes in the state, like providing hand pumps, Mr Modi said BJP rule had brought in major works like the Narmada project. This means Rs 37,000 debt on every Gujarati. While the Prime Minister accused the Congress of being "feudal" and its vice-president of "propagating a grand stupid thought" (GST) in the name of GST, Mr Gandhi stuck to his anti-demonetisation and GST stance to woo voters and sought to make the state's ruling BJP accountable for its promises in the last polls. "Even a year later, they are crying over the move".

In Prachi, Modi targeted the Congress again over its treatment of Sardar Patel and went onto say how the Opposition party had destroyed Gujarat with caste politics. Attacking Rahul for calling GST "Gabbar Singh Tax", Modi said that those who looted the country could only think of dacoits. Referring to the Rafale deal, he said: "I asked Modiji three questions (on the Rafale deal)".




The Congress' issued a clarification soon after the news broke on social media and said that at the Somnath Temple there is only one visitor book and any other image that has been circulated is fake. "They could also have done that, but for them fighting corruption is not an issue".

Invoking Mahatma Gandhi, Mr Modi said: "We have the legacy of Fakir Gandhi - the great Mahatma". Gujarat polls will be held in two phases, on December 9 and December 14. Counting of votes will take place on December 18.
