Real development of Gujarat to begin after polls: Modi
Rajkot: Expressing confidence that the BJP would win the upcoming Assembly polls in Gujarat, Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said real development of the state would begin after the elections.
"During my ten-year long tenure as the chief minister of Gujarat, I had been busy filling the ditches created by Congress in its 45 years of rule. The real development of the state would begin from 2013," Modi said.
He was addressing a gathering in Limbdi town of Surendra Nagar district as part of his 'Swami Vivekanand Yuva Vikas Yatra'.
"Congress believes in divide-and-rule policy and has done nothing, not only at the state-level, but also at the national level," Modi alleged.
"Congress has misused country's riches. However, Gujarat was saved as the people of the state had kept Congress away from power," he said.
He also criticised the UPA government's decision to ban export of cotton, which he said made farmers in the state suffer heavy losses.
