Praising Modi's works and development in the state in last 11 years under Modi's rule, Gadkari said, "The development of Gujarat is famous world over. People should vote for BJP and ensure development politics wins."
Taking a dig at central government, Gadkari accused UPA of wrongfully targeting police officials in Gujarat.
"In Maharashtra, many police encounters have taken place. But, the Union Government has not ordered a probe, because Congress is in power in Maharashtra," asserted the BJP president while condemning CBI investigations against several "honest" Gujarat officers.
Citing the truce between Modi and Gadkari, BJP must be relieved now. The duo reportedly had departed when Gadkari had forced Sanjay Joshi's re-induction in the party overruling Modi's objection. However, later Gujarat CM succeeded to compel Joshi to resign from BJP national executive.
Later RSS ideologue MG Vaidya ignited the rift between Gadkari and Modi when he claimed that the latter prompted anti-Gadkari campaign demanding his ouster. Soon, senior BJP leaders such as Ram Jethmalani, Yashwant Sinha, Satrughan Sinha joined the bandwagon. Now, while the internal war between BJP leaders have been exposed, truce between Modi and Gadkari might have brought some relief to the party.
