Gujarat Chief minister Narendra Modi charged the Congress Party with playing vote bank politics over the issue of hanging the parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and took a dig at the UPA government for its stand on Italian Business Ottavio Quattarochi. He also added that Gujarat and Punjab have blood relation.

Addressing the NDA rally here, Modi ridiculed the Congress – led regime saying “In Congress rule one has to be queue for everything right from getting ration, essential commodities, and employment”

In fact Congress has become so used to queues, that it says even Afzal Guru’s file is in queue. “Have you ever heard that somebody has to be in queue even for capital punishment?”

Countering Rahul Gandhi, who had made overtures to woo Sikhs during his rally on Saturday, Modi asked why the Congress Government, which had taken fifteen minutes to decide on the death sentence of a youth of the community who was convicted for killing the Army Chief General Vaidya in the 1980s, has delayed the hanging of Afzal Guru.
