Narendra Modi is role model of development: LK Advani
Ahmedabad: Senior BJP leader LK Advani on Sunday termed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as a "role model" of development while appealing to states to imitate him.
"Modi is undertaking great development work in Gujarat. He is a role model for chief ministers of other states on how to rule, govern and take care of even the poorest," Advani said while addressing election rallies at Kalol and Mansa in Gandhinagar district.
Praising Modi for introducing schemes for tribals and fishermen, Advani said "Prices have risen during the Congress regime while the Union government is facing corruption charges. Scam after scam is being unravelled."
BJP has fielded Dr Atul Patel from Kalol against Baldev Thakor of Congress.
Modi, who was criticised by Congress for undertaking a 3-D blitzkrieg for poll campaigning, received a pat on his back from the party veteran.
"Narendra Modi is the first person to address public through hologram (3 D technology)," he said.
A battery of senior leaders including party president Nitin Gadkari, Murli Manohar Joshi, Arun Jaitley, Venkaiah Naidu, Rajiv Pratap Rudy, Gopinath Munde among others were in the state to campaign for BJP in the poll-bound state.
Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley addressed rallies at Karamsad in Nadiad and Petlad in Anand and attacked Congress-led UPA government while praising Modi for "good governance".
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and his Himachal Pradesh counterpart Prem Kumar Dhumal appealed to voters to vote Modi government to power once again.
While Chouhan addressed the public meetings at Thakkarbapanagar and Halso, Dhumal at Maninagar.
Modi will address three public rallies tomorrow at Viramgam, Chotila in Surendranagar and Porbandar.
