Narendra Modi was in Jharkhand on 13th April to strengthen the BJP campaign for election. As a reply to the criticism of Dr Manmohan Singh, he stated that “Dr Manmohan Singh is causing harm to his own repute as economist by criticising Gujarat's Development.”
Narendra Modi mentioned that before criticising Gujarat's development, Dr Manmohan Singh should have gone through the facts and figures. He would have not made such baseless statement if he had checked the facts and figures.
‘In last five years Gujarat has made remarkable progress that is been appreciated by all. I would like to understand on what grounds does Dr Manmohan Singh has criticised Gujarat's Development'- he stated.
Addressing rally in Bokara, Narendra Modi asked to the audience isn't Prime Minister aware of the fact that Planning Commission had decided the GDP rate of 10.2% for Gujarat where as we have already gained the GDP rate to 10.42%. He said Indian Government is aware of the potential of Gujarat and therefore it had decided the GDP rate of 11.2 % in 11th Five years development scheme and we had already crossed the GDP rate to 11.43%in the first year. IS this not an achievement to Dr Manmohan Singh?
He addressed rallies in kodarma, Giridihi, Bokara, Gamla, Khuti and Ranchi. Narendra Modi also attacked Congress Party on issues including vote bank policy, Swiss Bank issue, and party's failure in fighting against terrorism.
