Countering Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remark that the Assembly elections will be a fight between “vikasvaad” (development) of the BJP and “vanshvaad” (dynasty) of the Congress, the Opposition party of Monday hit back, saying Modi was “obsessed” with Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

“Rahul Gandhi’s grandmother Indira Gandhi and father Rajiv Gandhi gave their lives for the cause of the nation…. No other family in the country has made so much sacrifice,” said Gujarat Congress president Bharatsinh Solanki, hours after Modi’s remark at BJP’s Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan in Gandhinagar.

On BJP’s claim that not much progress was made during the Congress rule in Gujarat, Solanki reminded Modi that the school and the college in which he studied were established by Congress governments, and the dams that provide drinking and irrigation facilities were also built under the party’s rule.

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at the slew of populist announcements by the NDA government, tweeting: “Mausam ka haal: Chunaav se pehle Gujarat mein aaj hogi jumlon ki baarish (Weather forecast: Ahead of elections, Gujarat will today have rain of poll gimmicks).”

The Congress vice-president also tagged a report headlined “As Gujarat waits for poll date, state gets projects worth nearly Rs 12,500 crore” in his tweet.

    Regarding Mrs Gandhi Rajeev ji having national interest .But foreign powers were involved in their deaths as due to confidential reports it is not proper to publish here.Regarding Rajeev ji,he did not like P.M. but foreign powers were involved and interested to see him as P.M.Thus,Shri Mukherji could not be chosen as P.M. by Congress Party.Accordingly.what happened as desired by time we know.Regarding B.J.P. two Prime Minster they have national interest and at east they did not sell this country to foreign powers as last ten years of congress rules it was happened by choosing such P.M. who o keyed every thing by order given to back persons.It is much better please do not discuss such matter as people know such facts and that was the reason B.J.P. came to the power.

      Why you people are going to provide too much gains only to Nehru family.I know news about last freedom struggle to India.Hitler had finished mighty power to Britishers and here was freedom struggle in all over India due to Netaji Bose.On the other hand two Lakhs English persons were living in India and four Lakhs freedom fighters were left to finish English people. This report was told to by English Academicians/Scientists to Britishers Authority by saying India is a peaceful country having culture which is not available in western countries.Accordingly,Mr Mahatma Gandhi was taken in to confidence to hand over power to India by any means. .Regarding freedom struggle, Kulbhushan Kharwanda who went to learn in U.K. Engineering Science as his father was Medical Doctor in India hangs to death in U.K. then his reaction was many freedom fighters would be in India after my death.How many family had given their life to country?Can any person was from Nehru Family or Gandhi families?

        Rahul great great g father Motilal Nehru gave His life and property for India's freedom struggle, His great g father did the Same.Rahul g mother and father Rajivji was assassinated serving this Nation. M00dyji has lost His sense.A PM should speak of His achievement's, His Governments success, progress absence of any of these, M00dyji is acting Childish.He is proving his worth.From 1947 Gujarat has earned a name of Land Of Mahatma Gandhi, Land of Non-Violence, land of Love and Charity. M00dyji gave Gujarat a change over "Gujarat land of Genocide""land of hatred and bloodbath" this is how world sees Gujarat Today.

          It was only a few months ago, that Modi was taunting Rahul in UP. Something to the effect that he was wondering when the little boy would speak up. Once again he has shown his true colours, his inability to bear pressure without abusive language and throwing tantrums. This is the man the Indians expects to lead them in a confrontation with China? As for Rahul, what MK Gandhi spoke of in another context seems to be coming true. "First they ignore you, then laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

              Can you please tell at least one quality of RaGa for him to be considered for any position, he is not worthy of being a CM of any state.. In Cong party, there are so many talented senior people like PChidambaram, Sibal , Kharge,Tharoor, Current CM of Karnataka, and the list goes on. They are qualified. Party ignored even most qualified Pranabda for top position. Now you want RaGa who has zero qualification, experieent,.. nothing. What type of slaves are you? nce, zero achievem
