Ahmedabad, October 14: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath while addressing a rally in Gujarat's Valsad, said that when Congress Vice president Rahul Gandhi campaigns for his candidates his party loses.
Addressing a rally, Adityanath censured Rahul over his allegations against the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"Congress are not supporters of development, but of devastation. That is why when terrorists like Ishrat Jahan were killed by the security forces in Gujarat, then Rahul Gandhi came to support her. The Congress is not a symbol of development, but of devastation," said Adityanath.
He said that Rahul Gandhi was confusing the people of Gujarat during his election rallies. "I have come here to apprise you about the reality of Gujarat's development as recently Congress' prince Rahul Gandhi had tried to confuse you. Today, those people are talking about development in Gujarat who never discussed about development in the country in last 70 years," said the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister.
Adityanath also said that Rahul Gandhi was talking about development of Gujarat when he himself hasn't developed his parliamentary constituency Amethi in Uttar Pradesh. "When Gujarat witnessed heavy floods then Prime Minister Modi and Amit Shah came here but Rahul Gandhi fled to Italy," said Adityanath.
The last Congress government in Gujarat was led by Chhabildas Mehta from February 17, 1994 to March 13, 1995. The 14th legislative assembly election in Gujarat is to be held by the end of 2017 as the term of 13th Assembly ends on January 22, 2018.
