A day after Congress chief Sonia Gandhi attacked the Narendra Modi government for allegedly making false claims on development projects in the state, the Chief Minister on Thursday described her speech as "lacklustre" even as he accused the UPA of failing to check inflation and price hike.
"Soniaben said a lot of things about the Modi government. Soniaji, you should also have said a word or two on inflation and price rise," he said while addressing a predominantly tribal gathering during the Swami Vivekanand Yuva Vikas Yatra in Dahod and the Panchmahals. "Soniaji said that development was there in Gujarat before (I came into power). Madam Soniaji, during the 2007 elections, you had come to Chhota Udepur to fool tribals, held a big rally and spent lakhs of rupees...What was the result? Your party could not even win the Chhota Udepur seat," he said.
Accusing the Congress of cheating people with false promises during the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, he challenged the Centre to "compete" with him on issues of development. "The Congress fooled you to vote for in 2009 general elections claiming it would curb inflation within 100 days. Was inflation curbed?," he asked.
