The BJP’s prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi stepped up his attack on the Congress and lashed out at its leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday, vowing to make them account for every penny and every minute.
“You have crossed all limits,” Modi said referring to the Congress at a rally at the end of his four-stop campaign tour of Gujarat. “You have even insulted Sardar Patel. I am going to take revenge.”
“I will seek accounts of every penny and every minute. Your CBI will not be able to harm me in any way. Twenty more days remain. Harass me as much as you can, I am still in the battlefield,” Modi said, speaking in Gujarati.
He repeatedly referred to the UPA government as the “government of mother and son”.
“The PM is coming, Soniaji is coming, yuvraaj will also come,” Modi said referring to the upcoming visits to Gujarat of Manmohan Singh, Sonia and Rahul.
“I want to tell them not to misguide the people of Gujarat. Your bidaai (departure) is certain, so better go with a smile on your face.”

Jamnagar is known for its brass parts industry. Modi told the gathering that brass parts units had closed down “because of the policy paralysis at the Centre”.
However, Ramji Patel, president of the Jamnagar Factory Owners’ Association, 70 per cent of which is made of the brass parts industry, contradicted him.
“We are growing at 5-6 per cent annually. There are 5,000 brass units in Jamnagar, and whatever financial benefit we get are all from central government schemes. The state government has no schemes for the brass parts industry,” Patel told The Indian Express.
