Gujarat elections 2012: ‘Was Narendra Modi sleeping like a Kumbhakaran?’

Vadodra: Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari on Saturday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of playing politics with the issues of national security.

While addressing press on the last day of campaigning in Gujarat, Tewari attacked Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, saying: “We do not need Modi certificate for serving people of Gujarat. We also need no lessons from those who surrendered at Kandahar.”

On the issue of Sir Creek, Tewari said the Gujarat Chief Minister was resorting to “shallow and superficial politicking” to shore up his “faltering” political fortunes.

Earlier on Wednesday, Modi had written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Sir Creek issue.

Further taking a dig at the state BJP government, Tewari said, “Was Gujarat CM sleeping like a ‘Kumbhakaran’ when thousands of kids were falling into the trap of malnutrition?”

"The truth is that in the past 11 years, Gujarat's people have not developed. Only some crony capitalists have benefitted. And to divert attention from these matters, Gujarat's chief minister plays political football with sensitive international issues like Sir Creek," Tewari said.

Tewari backed his claims with several questions to the Gujarat government and to Modi.

"Why has the Gujarat government not implemented the Right to Education," he asked.

"Gujaratis have immigrated to other lands and prospered and made India famous. And yet, why is Gujarat at 27th place in terms of English education in rural areas," Tewari wanted to know.

"Why is Gujarat in 17th place on the issue of anaemia, especially among women? Why don't the poor have houses to live in? Why is Gujarat behind other industralised states in terms of per capita income," Tewari asked.

"Lastly, Modi keeps on harping about his government being corruption-free. If that is the case, then why is there no Lokayukta in Gujarat," Tewari asked.
