PM Narendra Modi today highlighted several instances of Congress’ mis-governance and their ignorance towards people of Gujarat.

Shri Modi elaborated that Congress had lost in the first round and were not even thinking about the second round as they knew people here would support the BJP. He added, “Congress has now taken to excuses. Their leaders and cheerleaders are blaming EVMs, including saying they are hacked using Bluetooth.”

He highlighted how Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, former CM Anandiben Patel, other ministers, karyakartas and the PM himself reviewed and ensured relief work for welfare of people when the region faced floods. He accused the Congress and its leaders to have run away from helping people in times of crises. “Gujarat was battling floods but Congress MLAs chose to spend time in Bengaluru resorts”, he added.

Shri Modi remarked, “BJP lives in the hearts of people of Gujarat.”

The PM also took a jibe at Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Aaloo ki factory’ comment and said, “Our farmers work hard and grow potato. If at all the Congress comes to power, there will be no need to do that because their leader says we will produce potatoes in factories! Congress' basic knowledge about agriculture is so poor.”

He lambasted at the Congress party for terming the BJP as a party dedicated to the rich. He affirmed that the BJP governments in the state had always worked for welfare and upliftment poor and would continue to do so. “During peak summer, I would go to the villages of Gujarat and ask parents to educate their children. Whose children were they? Were they Ambani's children? No. They were children of the poor. We are working for poor…When we went to the farmers, did Krishi Mahotsav, we did not go out helping the rich. We went among the poor. Sadly, Congress leaders born with golden spoons will never understand what poverty is.”

The PM shed light on several welfare measures that have transformed lives of people in Gujarat like Sujalam Sufalam Yojana, 108 ambulance services. He also spoke at length about neem coating of urea that immensely benefitted farmers and reduction in prices of stents.

At Nadiad, the PM said that solutions to all troubles were in development. He spoke about several development initiatives undertaken in the state in the last two decades. He rubbished Congress’ claims of lack of development in the state and said that they were only spreading lies.

“My every moment is devoted to serve the 125 crore Indians”, he added further.

The Prime Minister mentioned about the Union Government’s financial inclusion scheme – Jan Dhan Yojana and how nearly 30 crore accounts were opened. He also spoke about how the social security schemes were benefitting several lives.

At Ahmedabad, PM Modi said that India was progressing at fast pace and the world was witnessing the strides the country had been making. “If India is making a mark on the world stage it is due to the 125 crore people of India”, he added.


Shri Modi alleged that UPA did everything possible to derail Gujarat's development journey. He said, “To put gas pipelines in Gujarat's villages (when I had the required budget also), the UPA got worried and did everything to stop that. I had to go to the Supreme Court.”


The PM mentioned that Gujarat had two development engines - one in Gandhinagar and the other in Delhi. The PM said, “Do you see this Sabarmati River? There were circuses held earlier, now see the riverfront. This is development. But for the Congress, Vikas is only where they can make money.” In this context, he spoke about the Pragati initiative that helped accelerate the pace of development.


The PM spoke about his vision of connecting waterways, government’s stress on Swachhata and the startup sector.
