Gandhinagar, Oct 16 : Sounding the poll bugle for Gujarat Assembly election, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today dared the Congress to contest it on the development plank.
Mounting a fierce attack on the Congress, Modi told a BJP rally that the Nehru-Gandhi family dislikes Gujarat and Gujaratis.
He said the opposition party’s current condition was because it has lost ability to think positive. “It is being driven by negative thinking,” he said.
The prime minister was addressing a massive rally organised by the state BJP to celebrate the conclusion of the saffron party’s ‘Gujarat Gaurav Yatra’ (march for Gujarat’s honour).
Modi tweeted on Sunday:
I bow to the people of Gujarat for blessing BJP for decades. We will always fulfil the dreams of every Gujarati with full strength & vigour

Senior leaders of the party joined the 15-day march, which was launched on October 1. The march covered a distance of around 4,471 kilometres, spread over 149 of the 182 Assembly constituencies in the state, Vaghani said.
