Gujarat elections a contest between dynasty and development: Narendra Modi

He has insulted every Indian by his unparliamentary words which attracts action against him Ramesh stated in the complaint. DH File

PM also alleged that the Narmada Dam project was delayed for so long just because Sardar Patel had started it. PM said that the coming election is between development and dynasty and accused Congress of undermining Gujarat's growth. Like the "anti-national" sentiment whipped up by the BJP and right-wing groups since Modi became the PM of India in 2014, probably Modi is also trying to build the narrative of anti-Gujarati in his home state, the election of which his party has to win at any cost.

The rally saw as many as seven lakh party workers, appointed as "page presidents" (in charge of each page on the electoral roll) on a five square kilometer land in Bhat village on the Ahmedabad-Gandhinagar highway.

Shashi Tharoor, a day after Narendra Modi made enraged comments on Congress, replied saying "we have nothing but love for your state". The PM himself in a lengthy defence of his economic record said that "a handful of pessimists" are playing fast and loose with facts to misrepresent a blip in the economy. "The highest number of MPs from rural areas are of the BJP", he said. He said Congress opposed BJP to implement various schemes. I wont repeat what they did to Sardar Patel, his daughter Maniben, and Morarji Desai.

"Gujarat polls are round the corner and the Congress has developed fever once again". In riot-ravaged Gujarat, he appealed to the asmita of 5 crore Gujaratis and said that outsiders are tried to defame them.

"Gujarat has always been treated like a thorn by the Gandhi family and their party".

The Prime Minister also slammed the opposition party for "misguiding" the country on GST, and clarified that the tax rates are fixed by a panel comprising ministers of all the states, including those ruled by the Congress.

He said, "I want to tell my friends that Congress is an equal partner in GST decisions". Modi's address came days after Congress vice-president Rahul's recent visit to Gujarat, where he reportedly drew impressive crowds.

Modi will address the "Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan" being organised by the state BJP to celebrate the conclusion of the saffron party's "Gujarat Gaurav Yatra" (march for Gujarat's honour). "This party and family are against Gujarat and Gujaratis".
