Patan, Nov 13: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on the last day of his Gujarat Navsarjan Yatra cornered Prime Minister Narendra Modi for lack of development, saying except five to ten  industrialists everyone is protesting in the state.

Addressing a public at Varana, Gandhi said for the very first time he witnessed a state where all communities were agitating for one or the other reason, and questioned, “Then who became happy in the past 22 years in Gujarat?”

“The UPA Government had put Rs 35,000 in MNREGA, which gave employment, families prospered, and the nation progressed. Now, Modi ji gave Rs 33,000 crore to only one factory – Tata Nano. The amount we used for progress of the nation is the same amount Modi ji gave to a company in Gujarat,” the congress vice president was saying, news agency ANI quoted.

Reacting strongly to the BJP’s criticism of his temple visits as an election gimmick, Gandhi said “Main Shiv ka bhakt hoon, sachaai mein believe karta hoon. BJP jo bhi bole main apni sachaai mein believe karta hu (I am a devotee of Lord Shiva. Let BJP speak whatever they speak, but I will remain honest).

His reaction came after he visited Bahuchara Ji Temple near Modi’s native district Mehsana in the evening.

Gandhi commenced  last day of his Gujarat Navsarjan Yatra by offering prayers at the Veer Meghmaya temple.

As after his arrival to Gujarat on Saturday, Gandhi visited Akshardham temple in Gandhinagar, offered prayers to Lord Swaminarayan and began his three-day tour of the region.

Earlier in a day, BJP National Gen Secy Bhupender Yadav said ” Star campaigner of Congress Rahul Gandhi is visiting temples and offering prayers which is good as it is a part of Indian culture. However, this must come naturally to a person & not only during elections.
