New Delhi, Oct 30 (UNI) The Congress today said it would expose the ''myth'' of the growth story of Gujarat under Chief Minister Narendra Modi, besides the post-Godhra atrocities on minorities.

AICC General Secretary Veerappa Moily speaking to mediapersons said what was there in Gujarat was only ''bubble economy.'' ''We want to expose the true picture of Gujarat under Modi regime,'' he said adding that the Tehelka expose on the post-Godhra atrocities would be one of the major issues.

The role of the Modi government in the killing of minorities in the post-Godhra period was well known. However, the sting by Tehelka had corroborated such incidents with direct evidence.

''We thought only Mr Modi is thick skinned...Now it is clear that the BJP as a whole is thick skinned,'' he said, while adding that the BJP was not bothered about any shameful acts. Their ideology is zero.

Meanwhile, AICC General Secretary in charge of Gujarat party affairs B K Hariprasad said the Congress would release its chargesheet against the Modi government in Ahmedabad in the first week of November.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi would address a Mahila rally at Anand in Gujarat on November 3.

He said the screening committee for Gujarat would meet on November 5 to finalise the list of Congress candidates. This would be followed by a meeting of the Congress Election Committee which will consider and approve the list.

Mr Hariprasad said the discussion with BJP rebels and allies of the Congress on seat adjustments would be completed before November 5.

He said 40 Central leaders of the Congress, including Mr Rahul Gandhi, would campaign for the party in Gujarat. The list would have almost all the Congress Chief Ministers.
