PATAN: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of changing the agenda of the Gujarat elections as he was getting exposed on one issue after another.
At a rally in Harij in Patan district, Gandhi said Modi raised the issue of suspended Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar’s remark about him as the PM had got exposed on other issues like the Narmada water, other backward castes (OBC) and development in 22 years of the BJP rule in the state.
“It is very interesting to see how the truth catches up with the people. Modiji started saying he will contest the election on the issue of Narmada water. It came to notice that the river water did not reach villages and went to the Tata Nano factory,” he claimed.
“After 2-3 days he said he will contest election on the issue of OBCs. Even that did not work,” Gandhi added.
Thereafter, Modi declared he will contest on the basis of 22 years of development. It, too, did not bear fruit. “After that Modiji says, ‘Mani Sankar Aiyar said a bad thing about me, so this will be my election issue’,” he remarked.
