Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi has challenged political observers that he will prove their perception wrong that development cannot win the elections. Modi, while addressing a public rally in Tharad during the 16th day of his Vivekanand Yatra also urged the gathering to completely throw out the Congress from north Gujarat.
NARENDRA MODI said that the people of Gujarat will disapprove those political experts who consider the role of development politics as of no use in winning elections. He said that the people of Gujarat have given importance to the issue of development in 2002 and 2007. He expressed confidence that in upcoming assembly elections too people of Gujarat will vote for development.
Narendra Modi also took the opportunity to criticize the Congress for its non-cooperative attitude towards the development of the state. The chief minister while quotng the example of Narmada dam said that he met the PM ten times and requested for permission to erect gates over the dam.
Modi alleged that his request fell on the deaf ears of the congressmen despite the PM getting convinced. He said that due to non-construction of gates at the dam, the surplus water of Narmada will go into the sea and will be of no use.
He accused the Congress of cheating the public during its 15 years of rule. Modi also warned the people that they could be cheated again. “There should be complete wipe out of Congress party in entire north Gujarat this time,” said Modi, as per media reports.
