Speaking at a seminar organised by North Indians
settled in Gujarat in Surat, Modi lashed out at the Centre
saying it has lost trustworthiness.
"On the one hand there is Gujarat which is providing an
atmosphere of peace, unity and credibility, and on the other
there is the UPA government in the Center whose credibility
has sunk to the bottom," Modi said.
"The recent example is that of the ban on export of

following opposition from farmers," he said.
"Such dubious policies of the Union government has
eroded its credibility at the international level. It has
now become clear globally that the Central government in India
can not be trusted," the chief minister said.
He further alleged that the UPA government was neck
deep in corruption.
"Gujarat has blessings of crores of people of India.
Those conspiring to defame Gujarat or stop its progress and
development, beware, we have never bowed down to such forces
nor will we do so in the future," Modi added.
