Narendra Modi pulls coup, gets Irfan Pathan to bowl for BJP
Commenting on Rahul Gandhi, he said, "Rahul Baba stayed in UP for months. He went to homes of poor, lifted children, the photo session went on for 12 months. But, the number of photos taken was more than the number of votes he got! People know such leaders well."
He said the Congress neither has people nor issues in this election. Using their money power, the Congress may be all over the newspapers and television but they will not be able to enter the hearts of the people of Gujarat, he added.
Modi alleged that it's been 40 years since the Congress promised 'Garibi Hatao' but have they adhered to their promise? Similarly, the Congress promised to bring prices down in 2009 within 100 days of getting elected, but prices have increased since then.
Modi seems worried: Khurshid
Taking a dig at the presence of cricketer Irfan Pathan in a BJP election rally in Gujarat, External Affairs minister Salman Khurshid said Chief Minister Narendra Modi appeared to be worried as he was seemingly pulling live or dead rabbits out of the hat.
In response to a reporter's question on Pathan being seen along with Modi, Khurshid said though he had not been able to visit Gujarat because of a series of visits.
"As an observer of the election process, I am a little bit surprised that he (Modi) is having to pull out rabbits, seemingly so many live or dead rabbits out of the hat. Looks like a worried person," he said.
Pathan today shared the stage with Modi in the campaign rally of BJP in Kheda.
