Modi`s fast a political gimmick: Ahmed Patel

Vadodara: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi`s `sadbhavna` fasts and his recent `Swami Vivekananda Yatra` were just ploys to derive political mileage, said Ahmed Patel, political secretary to Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
Addressing a meeting of Congress workers after the inauguration of party office at Bharuch today, Patel said, "People should not be mislead by Modi`s false propaganda and should bring Congress back to power in Gujarat in the elections in December."

Patel debunked Modi`s claim that his government brought piped gas to the state, saying the pipeline was in fact laid during the tenure of former Union Petroleum Minister Naval Kishore Sharma in 1989.
