    Drawing a comparision on development models Shah said there are two models in the country one is of Nehru-Gandhi model and another is of Gujarat model.

    "BJP won four out of five seats in Amethi," he said. "There are two models of growth in Amethi: Gandhi-Nehru model and the Modi model," he added.

    "Three generations of Gandhis abandoned Amethi," Shah said. "Modi model means 24/7 electricity for all households," said the BJP president.

    Shah took a swipe at Rahul saying, "I have been in the public service for 30-35 years, but I have never seen the winning candidate of a constituency never visiting, but the losing candidate continuing to work for its development like a daughter."

    Rahul has never visited Amethi collector's office even after being elected as the MP from here. People of Amethi ask Rahul Gandhi what Congress has done for three generations in Amethi, he added.

    "Rahul baba always asks us what Modiji has done for the nation," Amit Shah said in Amethi. "By 2022, UP will be developed by Gujarat," he added.

    "In the three years that we have been in power, Modi government has brought about 106 schemes. Maybe Rahul Gandhi does not even know how to count," he said.

    "We at least gave a prime minister to the nation who speaks. Earlier, India had a prime minister whom people were desperate to hear," he added.

    The steadfast development work started by CM Yogi Adityanath shows me that the state is going to see development soon, Amit Shah said.

    People of Gujarat the meaning of development. Rahul Gandhi, you should focus on what little you have done for Amethi, Shah said.

    Shah's tour comes just three days after Rahul Gandhi visited his basiton.

    Amit shah along withSmrithi Irani launched 22 developmental projects on Tuesday.

    BJP, which had garnered historic mandates in the 2014 Lok Sabha Polls and Assembly Elections in the politically crucial state, is seeking to breach Congress bastion.
