Do you know meaning of making Gujarat: Modi asks Netaji
Reacting against Mulayam Singh Yadav's statement during his Varanasi rally, Modi said that Samajwadi Party chief "does not understand the meaning of making of another Gujarat in India."
He claimed that Uttar Pradesh is enriched with several god gifted elements that it can leave Gujarat behind. However, the leaders of the state failed to work for the state which has been lagging behind of Gujarat and other states of the country, claimed Modi.
Modi said, "UP has immense potential to make even the whole nation a poverty free country. But misrule of the ruling party is creating hindrance for its development. Farmers of UP are finding it difficult to get fertilizer and on the other hand the fertilizer factory of Gorakhpur has been locked."
Speaking at Varanadi rally, Mulayam Singh alias Netaji said, "Narendra Modi wants to make UP another Gujarat. Didn't the BJP any other person to make its PM candidate?"
"He (Netaji) should better know how a Gujarat is made and what does making a Gujarat means. Making a Gujarat means 24 hours electricity in every town village and street for 365 days of a year. Making a Gujarat means maintaining communal harmony and prosperity. But unfortunately, Netaji's Government has given only misrule, communal violence, lack of electricity and backwardness of infrastructure," he added.
Modi reveals Congress' 'political conspiracy':
Giving a suitable answer to caste politics of Congress and Samajwadi Party, Modi said, "people of downtrodden sections of the society are looking with hope towards the BJP."

The Gujarat CM said, "Congress always tried not to let the poor to rise to prosperity for the sake of its vote bank politics. I want to ask, will you vote for the ruling parties of Delhi and Lucknow who denied to let the poor get rid of acute poverty."
BJP swept elections in the Assembly segments which have majority of SC and ST votes. The Congress has only used the people of these communities as its vote bank.
