Rahul Gandhi questions Narendra Modi's Gujarat development model, says more false promises to follow

New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the poverty rate in Gujarat.

While addressing a public gathering, the Gandhi scion took a dig at PM Modi's promise of ushering in good times saying, “PM Modi the BJP has been in power in Gujarat for the last 22 years, and now you are saying that you would eradicate poverty from the state by 2022.”

Rahul further quipped that PM Modi would provide a home to every Gujarat citizen on Moon by 2028.

The Congress leader also took pot shots at PM Modi and BJP president Amit Shah saying, "The two beneficiaries of the business dealings of Amit Shah's son Jay are Narendra Modi and Shah. Achhe din aa gaye unke (good days have arrived for them)."

Seeking to revive the Congress's fortunes in the state where the BJP holds sway, the Congress leader also visited a temple and fed grass to a cow, in gestures loaded with symbolism.
