Rahul cannot see development as he is wearing 'Italian spectacles': Amit Shah
Bharatiya Janata Party national President Amit Shah on Monday again took potshots at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi saying that he was not able to see development in Gujarat as he was wearing ‘Italian spectacles’.

“I would tell him that change your Italian spectacles for Gujarati spectacles and only then would you be able to see the development all around,” Amit Shah said while flagging off the second phase of Gujarat Gaurav Yatra from Porbandar, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi.

Amit Shah, who had flagged off the first phase from Karamsad, the birthplace of Sardar Patel, on Sunday, was equally scathing in his attack on Rahul and Congress for the second consecutive day.

“Rahulji has been asking us what have we done in three years but he would not be able to tell us what has his three generations done?...They ask us what are we proud of? We are proud of Mahatma Gandhi, of Sardar Patel and of Narendra Modi, of making Gujarat developed, peaceful and curfew free, of making Gujarat drought-free by bringing Narmada waters to parched areas.” Shah told the gathering of party workers.

Shah, like Sunday, rattled out series of statistics the corner Congress and said that it was Narendra Modi who had developed Gujarat into a peaceful and curfew free Gujarat. “During Congress rule, the moment you reached the periphery of Porbandar, it would have hoardings saying that limit of Porbandar begins and that of law ends! You have only seen the rise of the mafia as Latif, Ijju Sheikh, Ibla sheth, Mammu Miyan, Panju miyan...The way hooligans nurtured by Congress disappeared from Porbandar and other parts of the state, so did the oldest political party.”

Shah also did not stop from reminding Rahul of dismal performances of his party in the state elections in Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand, J&K, Assam, Manipur, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh since Modi took over as PM in 2014. “Elections cannot be won by spending vacations in America but one must come here and work hard at the ground level,” he said.
