Mumbai, Oct 4 (UNI) Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today criticised the Central government on Ram Setu issue, saying it was a fight between Ram and Rome.
Speaking at a function organised by Vande Mataram Foundation to felicitate Mr Modi for being selected as the Best Chief Minister in the country by Rajiv Gandhi Foundation, he said he was definitely in favour of the development but not at the cost of damaging the Ram Setu or Adam's Bridge.
He also criticised the Central government for showing Lord Krishna along with nude 'gopis' on the brochure brought out by Tourism Department to attract foreign tourists.
On fake encounter issue, Mr Modi said Sohrabuddin Sheikh who was killed in an encounter, had 100 AK-56 rifles at his farm house.
''The Congressmen want to clinch the power on his coffin, but it will never materialise,'' he said.
Mr Modi gave all details and figures about the development in Gujarat, where the assembly polls will be held in December.
The Chief Minister, who will be completing six uninterrupted years in the office on October 7, said development could be achieved using the same machinery but through commitment and eradication of corruption.
Earlier, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Jaswant Singh said the country was facing various problems such as internal security, as well as the neighbours were also facing internal problems and added that this was due to bad administration.
Holding Central government responsible for this, Mr Singh said Gujarat is the example how the administration should be done.
The function was attended by Shiv Sena executive president Uddhav Thackeray and senior BJP leaders Gopinath Munde and Nitin Gadkari.
