Prime minister Narendra Modi in a rally in Baruch attacked Congress and said,”In UP, where Congress ruled for decades, the state from where generations of top Congress leaders belong. We saw what happened there in the local elections. Congress was wiped out. UP knows the Congress well and so does Gujarat.” PM Modi also claimed that rapidly developing districts include muslim populated areas Baruch and Kutch are among them.
Prime minister while criticising congress said,” When there were floods in Banaskantha, Congress leaders were in Bengaluru to save 1 leader from losing a Rajya Sabha poll. That same leader is topmost Congress leader but what did he do for Bharuch? He was unable to work for Narmada,neither did he think about ro-ro ferry.”
“My problem with Congress politics is simple- they oppose us just for the sake of opposing. They oppose things like bullet train only because they could not take this initiative forward and are envious someone else is.” he added.
He also claimed of a un systematic law and order situation in the area during the rule of Congress and said, “Do you remember the poor law and order situation in Bharuch when Congress was in power? Curfews and violence was common here. BJP changed this, not only in Bharuch but all over Gujarat.”
