Rajkot: Opposition leader in Gujarat
assembly, Shaktisinh Gohil, on Sunday alleged that the Narendra
Modi-led government had failed to handle the law and order
situation and the crime rate had gone up in state.

"Crime rate has gone up in the entire state but the Chief
Minister is not concerned and is busy wasting money on
Sadbhavna fasts," Gohil said, addressing a public meeting in
Dhebar Chowk here.

Gohil led Congress` `Sardar Sandesh Yatra` into Rajkot
last night.

Demanding the appointment of a Lokayuta in the state,
Gohil alleged that Modi deliberately created hurdles "fearing
exposure of corruption of his government".

"Modi deliberately creates hurdles in the appointment of
Lokayukta because of fear of exposure of corruption of his
government," the Congress leader said.

Promising to abolish service tax and surcharge on petrol
and diesel if Congress came to power, Gohil accused Modi of
siphoning the "huge tax" on fuel for his Sadbhavna fasts.
