Shri Modi remarked that had our political leaders taken the path of good governance (Sushasan) for the past 60 years, things would be different today. He said that in such times it is natural to remember a personality like Sardar Patel.

Shri Modi attacks anti-Gujarat mindset of Congress-led UPA

The Chief Minister affirmed that the same Central Government that is trying to pass the Food Security Bill in the name of the poor is leaving no stone unturned as far as rendering injustice towards Gujarat is concerned. He shared that the Gujarat Government is already providing 35 kg grains to the poor with wheat at Rs. 2/- per kilo and rice at Rs. 3/- per kilo and 35 kg but with the Food Security Bill this will reduce to 25 kg per month. He attacked the UPA Government for fooling the people of India in the name of providing food security.

Vasuben Trivedi, Rajnibhai Patel, Shri Nanubhai Vanani, MPs Shri Dinu Solanki, Shri Rajendrasinh Rana, MLAs, former Ministers and other dignitaries.
