Modi ridicules Rahul’s rise, wants Gujarat to dump Congress: 10 highlights

PM Modi pitched the Gujarat elections as a battle between ‘vikaswaad’ (development) and ‘vanshwad’ (dynasty)

While Rahul Gandhi is all set to take over as Congress president next week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday mocked the sixth Nehru-Gandhi scion saying, “Congratulate the Congress on their ‘Aurangzeb Raj.”

At a rally in poll-bound Gujarat’s Rajkot, PM Mofi pitched the Gujarat elections as a battle between ‘vikaswaad’ (development) and ‘vanshwad’ (dynasty).

Here’s how Modi targetted Congress party:

1. Modi likens Rahul’s elevation to dynastic succession in the Mughal dynasty

“I congratulate the Congress on their ‘Aurangzeb Raj.’ For us, the well-being of the people matters and 125 crore Indians are our high command,” said PM Modi.
‘Mani Shankar Aiyar, who was a minister in the Congress government, has said ‘did elections happen during Mughal rule? After Jehangir, Shah Jehan came, was any election held? After Shah Jehan it was understood that Aurangzeb would be the leader’. Does the Congress accept that it is a one-family party? We don’t want this Aurangzebi Raaj (Aurangzeb’s rule). For us, the country comes first, 125 crore (1.25 billion) people of this country are our high-command.’

2. Congress has abandoned ‘public modesty’

Without referring to the National Herald case, in which Rahul Gandhi had got bail, Modi said, “Congress has gone bankrupt, as it is going to make a person who is out on bail in corruption case its president.”

3. Congress injured ‘Gujarati asmita’

Seeking to play up emotive card, he reminded voters that Morarji Desai, who hailed from Valsad district, was arrested by the Congress regime during Emergency and put behind bars for 19 months.

For the voters of Gujarat and the Valsad district, time has come to punish those who kept on hurling insults on Gujarat. “Stop insulting Gujarat,” he said the Congress always presumed that people of Gujarat should be insulted and shown in poor light.”

They did not do this with Bihar, Uttar Pradesh or West Bengal. What offence we did, was it our offence that we produced Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel,” he said.

4. Gandhi dynasty kept Uttar Pradesh poor

Gandhi dynasty kept Uttar Pradesh, which sent its members to the prime ministerial chair, poor and backward. Modi reminded the people how Congress was wiped out in Uttar Pradesh, Assam and would soon be wiped out in Himachal Pradesh, too.
