"The Gujarat government has the highest per capita debt liability, which means every citizen of Gujarat has more debt to pay than citizen of any other state," Digvijaya Singh said on Friday.

"Would Modi acolytes please respond?" he asked.

"Yes, they would with more Galis' (abuses). No issue. Gujarat Model of Development must come in public domain," he said.
