Ahmedabad, Oct 31 (UNI) Chief Minister Narendra Modi today said BJP's win in the assembly elections, slated for December, would be the victory of Gujarat over anti-state elements.
''This election is for the victory of Gujarat ... to defeat the anti-Gujarat elements,'' said Mr Modi while addressing a gathering of lawyers, organised by the BJP's legal cell.
''Six years ago when I took over as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, there was a criticism from some quarters about my zero experience in administration and that I was completely a novice for the chief minister's post. That criticism was right, I accept in earnest, I don't deny that. I had never held any administrative post in my career before. However, at the time of swearing in as CM, I had said three things -- one, I would not desist from hardwork, second, I might commit some mistakes in administration, and third, I would never ever have any malafied intentions while discharging my duties,'' he said.
''Today, after completion of six years of my government in the office, the development of Gujarat is all there to see. In the last 45 years of Congress governments in the state, they had allotted only Rs 2,000 crore for the nine five-year plans, while during the six years of BJP government, the party had spent Rs 47,000 crore for the 10th five-year plan, and I have decided to allot Rs one lakh crore for the 11th five-year plan,'' he said.
