Ahmedabad, Dec 14 (UNI) Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today claimed that the people had decided to give BJP another five-year term for a stable rule in the state and said 'Gujaratis are determined to teach congress a lesson for insulting its pride'', he said.
Addressing eight public rallies in central Gujarat during the day, Mr Modi challenged Sonia Gandhi and Congress-led government at the centre to take action against him.
''They can cut me into four pieces, if they have guts!, he said Exuding confidence on the last day of campaigning, Mr Modi said ''I have seen a BJP wave all over the state. congress will draw a blank in the elections.'' Congress has annoyed Gujaratis by putting up a terrorist's photograph instead of Gandhiji in its electoral advertisement for the last leg of campaigning. What kind of message Congress, which is protecting merchants of death, intends to give to 5.5 crore people of Gujarat?'' he asked.
Mr Modi asked people '' Do you want to install a terrorist as the chief minister? Soniaji calls me ''maut ka saudagar'' but I have not become chief minister because of Soniaji's mercy but because of the blessings of the people of Gujarat'', He said ''on the development issue too congress is trying to mislead people. we have launched many schemes for the overall development of the state''.
'' The Narmada project is lifeline of Gujarat, still congress hobnobbed with anti-dam activists like Medha Patkar to halt the construction to increase the height of the dam, the chief minister alleged.
