Playing down the possibility of him being declared as the BJP’s PM candidate, he asked the party workers to work and fight for the freedom of the people from the present day “corrupt government”.
He insisted that the BJP is a catalyst for progress and no one has the right to let the nation down. Addressing the meet, the popular CM also mentioned about the development that has taken place in the BJP-ruled states, mentioning how states have changed from being revenue deficit to the states having surplus of it now.
Responding to the scathing criticism of the Gujarat chief minister, Congress leader and Union Minister Rajiv Shukla went into damage control mode by stating that the kind of language used by the leader was not the one expected by a national leader.
He said that Modi is mistaken to believe himself as a national leader by spending crores of rupees on self-propaganda. The minister further said that the BJP leader is well known for his flip flops and stressed that if he really considered Pranab Mukherjee better than the PM why did he support his candidature during the presidential elections.
Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari, while responding to Modi’s attack tweeted: “AMNESIA Is it not true that Vajpayee ji reminded a certain CM (Modi) about Raj Dharma in 02 (2002 riots)? What did Vajpayee attribute their 2004 defeat to?”
