As the campaigns leading to assembly elections in Gujarat intensifies, the BJP national president Amit Shah on Monday chose to attack the Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi who has been questioning Gujarat model of development.
Shah advised Rahul to remove the Italian glasses and wear Gujarati spectacles to get idea of the developments that have taken place under the Bhartiya Janata Party’s regime in the state.
"The Congress is asking us what the Narendra Modi government at the Centre has given Gujarat in the last three years. I want to remind them that the Modi government approved AIIMS for Gujarat, an international airport for Rajkot, approved raising the height of Narmada dam and allocated homes to 6 lakh urban poor," Shah said to Times of India.
"However, Rahul could not see any of this. He still asks what we have done in these three years. Rahul can't see it because he is wearing Italian glasses. To be able to see the development, he needs to remove those spectacles and wear Gujarati glasses," Shah added.
Shah has also announced that the assembly elections in Gujarat will be held in the first week of December and also asked people to ensure defeat of Congress.
