Addressing media at Gandhidham in Kutch, Shah countered Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s allegation that no development had taken place in Gujarat under the BJP rule. He claimed that the figures quoted by Rahul during his Navsarjan Yatra were given by some NGOs and were incorrect.
Addressing party workers in Gandhidham and Bhavnagar, he said: “For them development is a joke, for us it’s our attitude.” Attacking Rahul, Shah said, “During Congress rule there were only seven universities. Today, the number is 57.” Countering Rahul’s claim that Gujarat has been ignored by the NDA government at the Centre, Shah said, “The Centre extended all necessary help to Gujarat. We don’t have to give its account.” Shah claimed that 25 lakh people got employment under Centre’s Mudra scheme.
“Congress shows love for Gujarat only during elections. Why didn’t Congress government allow installation of gates of Narmada dam and why Kutch did not get any grant for irrigation?” he asked.
