Chandigarh, April 6: Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday lashed out at the BJP while addressing an election campaign rally in Haryana.

Taking a dig at BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi over the much flaunted Gujarat model of development, he said: "We do not require the Gujarat model. Here, we need the Haryana one. You are on top in wheat and milk production."

He also questioned BJP over the delay in announcing its manifesto.

"The Bharatiya Janata Party has not been able to even release its manifesto when the elections are going to start in two days. They still do not have a manifesto," Gandhi said addressing a rally for Congress parliamentarian Ashok Tanwar, who is re-contesting from Sirsa.

He said the Congress had taken the views of a cross-section of the society before finalising and releasing its manifesto.

"The BJP started with its 'India Shining' balloon in the 2004 election and it burst. Their balloon in the 2009 election also burst. Now they have filled air into the Gujarat model balloon. Even this will burst," he said.

Accusing the BJP of practising divisive politics,Rahul Gandhi said each state in India has its own model of development.

The Congress leader said: "These people, wherever they go, instigate people to fight among themselves."

He said the Congress takes action whenever there is corruption.

Gandhi said some farmers from Gujarat had complained to him that they were forced to leave the state after being called "outsiders". He said: "We take everyone along. We do not practise politics of anger but that of mutual affection."
