Those opposing bullet train can take bullock carts: PM Modi

  • My Gods are 125 crore Indians, I am serving them: PM Modi in Gujarat

He would also address election rallies in Surendra Nagar and Rajkot later in the day. "They oppose things like bullet train only because they could not take this initiative forward and are envious someone else is", he said. "So, what Shehzad is saying is not unusual, but it is the Congress culture", Modi said.

Continuing his criticism of the grand old party, Poonawalla alleged that the organisation did not value merit as much as family relations or a 'sycophant of the dynasty.' He also claimed that if the Congress got rid of dynasty politics, there would be a 30 percent surge in the number of seats won by them. Congress was wiped out. Responding to a comment made in UP over 'Gujarat na gadheda (donkeys of Gujarat), he said donkeys in the desert region of Gujarat can outrun even cars.

"That same leader is the topmost Congress leader now but what did he do for Bharuch?"

He further said that the curfews and violence were common in Bharuch when the Congress was in power, adding, "BJP changed this, not only in Bharuch but all over Gujarat".


As Gujarat elections are approaching, all parties have geared up with their full strength to mark their victory.

"In Uttar Pradesh, where Congress has ruled for decades, the state from where generations of top Congress leaders belong, we saw what happened there in the local elections". When PM Modi was addressing the crowd in Bharuch district of Gujarat, the chairs remained empty.

Echoing a similar sentiment, finance minister Arun Jaitley said the Gujarat polls were increasingly becoming a contest between development, political stability on one hand and an opportunist alliance, anarchy on the other. The polling for 182-member Gujarat Assembly will take place on December 9 and 14 and the votes will be counted on December 18.
