Shah invokes Guj pride to counter Cong
BJP president Amit Shah slammed the Congress for “injustice” to Sardar Patel and former prime minister Morarji Desai, both of whom wer from Gujarat.

State Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel attacked Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, calling him “immature” and “childlike”.

On Sunday, Shah flagged-off the fortnightly Gujarat Gaurav Yatra from Sardar Patel’s birthplace of Karamsad, where he launched a fierce counter-attack on Congress after Rahul Gandhi’s fairly successful three-day yatra in Saurashtra recently.

The BJP chief also invoked Gujarati pride to counter the social media blitzkrieg on the party’s main plank of development, something that sustained the party for a decade-and-a-half.“Rahul Gandhi wants us to account for Gujarat’s development. We demand answer for three generations of Gandhi family to people of Gujarat; to Sardar Patel; to Morarji Desai,” Shah said.

Scoffing at Rahul for questioning development in Gujarat, Shah said the people of India have accepted Modi’s corruption-free model.

“Until 1995, electricity production in Gujarat under Congress rule was nearly 36700 MW,” Shah said, giving out a series of statistics to highlight the accomplishments of the successive BJP governments in the state.

“In the last two decades of the BJP rule, the power generation has crossed 100,000 MW,” said Shah.
