Rahul Gandhi can't see Gujarat's development through Italian glasses: Amit Shah

"I want to remind them that the Modi government approved an AIIMS for Gujarat, an worldwide airport for Rajkot, approval to raise the height of the Narmada dam and allocation of homes to six lakh urban poor", Mr Shah said, adding that the Congress vice president seemed to have missed all this.

During his recent visit to state, Rahul Gandhi had questioned BJP's Gujarat model of development where he termed it a failure by mentioning that no jobs were created. He still asks what we have done in these three years. "He should wear Gujarati spectacles and not the one made in Italy, only then he will see the development in Gujarat", Shah said while speaking at "Gujarat Gaurav Yatra" in Porbandar.

The BJP has often raised the issue of Congress president and Rahul's mother Sonia Gandhi's Italian origins. Everyone has the right to see dreams.

Amit Shah had kicked off the party's mass outreach initiative "Gujarat Gaurav Yatra" on Sunday to highlight the state's achievements during the two decades of the BJP rule ahead of the Assembly election in the state. To win the polls, you need to do some hard work.

Many analysts were quick to point out the fact that how Shah had managed to avoid commenting on the development in Gujarat during the BJP's 22 years of rule.

On Monday too, Shah had addressed the gathering and had accused the Congress of inflicting "injustice" on Gujarat, generation after generation, and said that in the upcoming Assembly election, the people of the state will make fun of those who "mock Gujarat's development". Today's yatra passed through Saurashtra and south Gujarat.

The Karamsad yatra will travel through the districts of Central and North Gujarat.

Both the yatras will run simultaneously.

In a gesture loaded with symbolism, Shah paid tributes to Patel at his ancestral home in Karamsad with Chief Minister Vijay Rupani and his deputy Nitin Patel in tow, before invoking icons of Gujarat, including Patel, Morarji Desai and Narendra Modi, to mount an offensive against the Congress.

Modi and Shah will remain present at the concluding ceremony of the yatra, the place for which is yet to be decided. The venue is yet to be decided.
