2014 defeat knocked sense into us, admits Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi India’s main opposition party Congress vice-president

Participating in a Q&A session at the University of California, Berkeley, last month, he said, "I am an Opposition leader, but Modi is also my Prime Minister".

Rahul Gandhi during his Gujarat visit mocked Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) "vikas" (development) agenda by saying that "vikas" has gone mad in the state after listening to the party's false promises and lies.

Rahul's remark came after several Union ministers came out in support of Shah's son Jay Amit Shah. The Zee News reporter was unable to answer any of Rahul's questions. She also accused Gandhi of cheating the farmers of Amethi, by grabbing their land through the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation. Making a pitch for Modi government's performance model versus Nehru-Gandhi model, Shah attacked Gandhi scion for not providing a collector's office in Amethi. Union Minister Smriti Irani lauded the Chief Minister Yogi for promptly arranging funds to solve the land erosion problem caused by Gomti river - something the previous governments haven't paid any attention to. The Gandhi family did nothing for three decades.

The Congress leader said there should be single-minded focus on job creation.

Praising Irani, who had lost to Rahul in Amethi in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Shah said: "BJP had won four of the five Assembly seats because Irani has been visiting Amethi and working for the people even after losing in 2014". "Amit Shah's son's company... it's genie of Modiji's start up India, Make in India", Gandhi said pointing to a news story that said Shah's son Jay's company grew multifold after 2014 and Shah's promotion as BJP's national president.


Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi, who is on three-day tour to poll-bound Gujarat, on Tuesday participated in tribal folk dance form "Timli" in Chhota Udaipur district.

"The people of Gujarat know about the development of their state..." Members of the powerful community have been at loggerheads with the state government over the reservation issue. Within days our soldiers entered Pakistan and avenged the attack, Shah said.

"A vast stretch of land was given by farmers long back for construction of the Samrat cycle factory".

Pro-poor policies and a viable caste combination are sure shots for winning elections, as has been proved by the Modi-led BJP.

Speaking in the same vein, Adityanath said the Gandhi family is used to only think about Italy and not Amethi.
