Gandhinagar: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah on Monday made it clear that the party will contest the elections in the name of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to retain power in Gujarat. He set the goal of getting more than 150 seats in the 182-member assembly. “We want to win the elections with a majority of three-fourths when Shah was the Chief Minister, we had won 127 seats, now that he has become the Prime Minister,” Shah said addressing thousands of party workers, who appeared in the excitement. So this figure looks quite small. ”
Shah, taking Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on the back, said Rahul has done nothing for his Amethi Assembly constituency and raising the question that how BJP has developed Gujarat.
He said, “Rahul Gandhi has failed to make a collectorate office in Amethi and he is lifting his finger on our work in Gujarat. The anti-development Congress will be eliminated from the state in the coming elections.”
He also attacked those who targeted Modi’s ambitious Ahmedabad-Mumbai bullet train project. They said, “They are making fun of the bullet train but Gujarat’s people love development. Modi’s Gujarat model defines development.”
Earlier addressing the workers, Chief Minister of Gujarat, Vijay Rupani, announced the release of 1% interest on loans to the farmers of Gujarat by the Gujarat government.
