In an all out attack against the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi not only blasted now suspended Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar, but also asked the people of Gujarat to ‘punish’ the Grand Old Party.In a blistering attack following the ‘neech’ row, PM Modi said that Aiyar visited Pakistan and during that trip he said, “remove (Narendra) Modi from the way and then see what will happen to India-Pakistan peace. What did he mean by removing me from the way.”“What does it mean to remove someone from the way? Did Aiyar go to Pakistan to give my supari,” PM asked.Talking about how Congress leaders were ‘enjoying’ in a Bengaluru resort while people in Gujarat were suffering the floods, PM Modi said that the Congress ‘must be taught a lesson.’While addressing the election rally in Banaskantha, PM Modi said, “People of Patan and Banaskantha know the difference between Congress and BJP.”“BJP leaders were providing flood relief whereas Congress leaders were relaxing in swimming pools in resorts in Bengaluru,”he added. Speaking about development by BJP in Gujarat, PM Modi said, “Earlier, people from here would have to travel a considerable distance to pray to Maa Narmada. Due to BJP, Narmada waters have come to this region.”It was not only Aiyar who was slammed by the Prime Minister. He also cornered senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal. “Instead of coming clear on why he wants Ayodhya matter to be discussed in court after 2019, he is busy saying whose lawyer is he. He says he doesn’t represent Sunni Wakf Board but he should say who is he representing? Why doesn’t Congress also remove this lawyer leader,” PM Modi said.The polling for the first phase of the Assembly Elections will take place tomorrow and votes will be counted on December 18.The Gujarat Assembly has 182 seats.
