An assurance of more development in the State and a promise of replicating the progress across the Nation was given by Shri Narendra Modi during his rallies across Gujarat, on 28th April, the final day of campaigning before the State goes for polling on 30th April. Speaking at Kheralu, Modasa, Lunawada, Dahod and Vallabh Vidyanagar, Shri Modi stated of the development witnessed in the State and reaffirmed the BJP’s focus on improving the lives of every person, irrespective of their class or caste. He also spoke of the Congress’ tendency to deceive the Nation with false claims and urged the people to wipe out their presence.
From the Congress Vice President’s claims of ‘2 out of 1’ kids in Gujarat being malnourished, to the ‘27000 crore jobs lying vacant in Gujarat’, Shri Modi exposed the irrational claims that were mere attempts at attacking the development model of Gujarat. He questioned the Congress VP as to how could there be ‘27000 crore vacant jobs’ when the entire population of the State was only 6 crore. He also retaliated to Rahul Gandhi’s statement of there being no Lokayukta in Gujarat, and spoke of how a report from the Lokayukta in the State had indicted a former Congress Minister for his involvement in illegal deforestation.
Shri Modi drew the crowd’s attention to the Centre’s anti-Gujarat approach by mentioning how the work on fixing gates on the Sardar Sarovar dam was stalled by the Central government. If this happened, the water availability would increase by manifold, but the Centre hindered this, said Shri Modi.
Recalling his childhood days spent in Vadnagar and his early days spent as the organisation’s worker across Gujarat, Shri Modi affirmed of his commitment to fulfil his responsibilities towards the people of the State and the Nation.
Affirming how the 2014 Elections, for Gujarat, was about giving an opportunity to the son of the land to serve the Nation, Shri Modi urged the people to vote for the BJP and play a key role in deciding a bright future for the Nation. He sought their blessings in enabling him to lead the country, and appealed to them to vote in large numbers on 30th April and send all 26 Lotuses from Gujarat to Delhi.
