Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Monday launched yet another attack on the Congress saying the government in Delhi has just two works – one to find Modi, another to find gold.

“Govt in Delhi is sitting in front of TV sets, keep messaging, to watch where Modi is, find out what Modi is doing. They have recruited thousands of people to keep a track of where, what is Modi doing,” he said.

Slamming Congress and praising Atal Bihari on dealing with terrorism he said that the latter’s government made law against the menace, while the former destroyed it.

He questioned the gathering – “India's Govt has been making new promises here, but I want to ask you do you believe in Congress?” to which the crowd replied – “No!”

He again questioned – do you believe in Congress's talks, their policies, their intentions?, the crowd replied, “No!”

On the attack by the Congress that a tea seller can’t become PM, he said it is better to be tea seller than sell out the nation.

He also said that let the country decide if they want a tea seller as their PM.

“Is it a crime to be poor, is it a crime to feed oneself by selling tea?” he asked.

On the controversial statement by a Congress leader that Bharat Ratna must be taken back from singer Lata Mangeshkar for supporting Modi, he said:

“Isn't Congress speaking like Hitler, isn't this attitude against democracy?”
