Modi afraid of Amit Shah: Rahul Gandhi

Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi said on Monday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was scared of BJP president Amit Shah.

Rahul said this during campaigning  for the second-phase of Gujarat elections in Tharad.

"Amit Shah's son Jay Shah makes Rs 50,000 in to Rs 80 crore in just three months," Rahul said, adding that because the prime minister  who talked of removing corruption was afraid of Amit Shah. He did not utter a word against him (Amit). "You listened to all his lectures. Not once did he uttered the word 'corruption'."

Rahul also hit out at Modi on the perceived promise of depositing Rs 15 lakh in every citizen's account during campaigning for the 2014 polls. "He talked of depositing Rs 15 lakh to your accounts but he has not deposited even 15 paise in any account," Rahul said while attacking the prime minister over  demonetisation and GST implementation.

Rahul also tried to corner the PM by calling BJP a "suit-boot ki sarkar" and one working for few industries and industrialists as Tatas and Adanis.

Without raising the issue of Modi's charge  that  Pakistan interfered in Gujarat polls in collusion with Congress, Rahul said, "elections are in Gujarat and Modiji is talking about Japan, Pakistan and Afghanistan."

In an attempt  to reach out to the electorate in the state, Rahul said that the love and affection showered on him by the people of Gujarat in last three months have forged a special bond with him. "You have established a life-long relationship with me and with me once relationship is formed, I do not break. As long as I am alive, in whichever state or village or road I may be, if anyone from Gujarat, any poor or any shopkeeper, calls for me, I will reach within five minutes," he said.
