Amid ongoing war of words in Gujarat, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday stepped up his offensive against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sought to make the state’s ruling BJP accountable for its promises made in the last polls.”22 salon ka hisaab, Gujarat mange jawaab (Gujarat demands answers for 22 years of BJP rule),” Rahul tweeted.”First question to the Prime Minister on the state of affairs in Gujarat – In 2012, he promised to provide 50 lakh new houses, but provided 4.72 lakh in five years. Will the prime minister tell whether it will take another 45 years to fulfil the promise?,” he added.Modi and Rahul Gandhi are in Gujarat today to campaign for their parties ahead of the December 9 and 14 assembly poll.Also readGujarat elections 2017: Ravi Shankar Prasad predicts historic win for GujaratMeanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also attacked the Congress Party by bringing up a former prime minister Indira Gandhi’s decades-old visit to Gujarat’ Morbi.”When Indira Ben came to Morbi, I remember there was a photo of her in the Chitralekha Magazine with a hanky over her nose due to the foul smells, but for Jansangh/Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) the streets of Morbi are fragrant; its the fragrance of humanity,” Modi said while addressing a rally here.Resuming his campaign for the assembly polls in his home state, Modi also accused the Congress of taking credit and political mileage over minor schemes, like providing hand-pumps.”The Congress’ development model was giving hand-pumps. For BJP it is the SAUNI scheme (the Narmada water project for Saurashtra region), where we will fill dams of Saurashtra through huge pipelines,” Modi said.Also readGujarat Elections 2017 | War of words: Who should claim the throne in Gujarat?Attacking Rahul Gandhi for calling GST ‘Gabbar Singh Tax’, Modi said that those who looted the country could only think of dacoits.Rahul Gandhi will visit Gir Somnath, Amreli and Bhavnagar districts where he will interact with people and hold public meetings, party sources said.The Congress is seeking to dislodge the BJP from power in the state, which the saffron party has ruled for close to two decades now.
