During an interview with The Economic Times, Modi has been quoted as saying, "They (the Centre) don't want the state government to perform and they place hurdles. This is naturally making the investor jittery. They (investors) want to work with state governments, but the Centre is playing the obstructionist."
While mocking the PM, the Gujarat CM also claimed, "Firstly, the government should stop painting a rosy picture. If the Prime Minister accepts the reality, he can find an answer. But the problem is that he does not believe in what he is doing. He is not able to take even those decisions made by him to their logical end."
However, Modi did not disclose his thoughts about the speculations over BJP's PM candidate for the upcoming Lok Sabha election 2014.
"You can ask me about it in 10,000 ways, but I will give the same answer - that I am busy with governance in Gujarat," answered Modi when asked to express his opinion on the PM candidature.
