When Rahul Gandhi tapped his feet on tribal songs in Gujarat

Mani Shankar Aiyar

"If Rahulji believes that wearing shorts in India is a sign of empowerment, as a woman I want to contradict it", said Ms Irani, who was in Mr Gandhi's Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh, Amethi and addressed a mega rally with BJP chief Amit Shah. Launching a scathing attack on Rahul Gandhi, Shah asked him to show his report card as the Amethi MP and urged the people to give the BJP and Narendra Modi a chance in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Rahul Gandhi the Vice President of Congress leaves no chance to criticise BJP in his speech or the social media.

Unveiling a host of government projects, Shah asserted that UP was becoming a developed state under the Modi government at the Centre and the Yogi government in the state.

Gandhi, on Monday, began the second leg of the Navsarjan Yatra in Central Gujarat, where he will visit various districts as part of his three-day tour.

With Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi all set to take over the reins of his party next month, he has his task cut out. The story has been translated into Hindi and Gujarati and the translated versions are being circulated on WhatsApp.

"There are two models of development, the Nehru-Gandhi model and the Modi model".

Of those surveyed, 68 percent of people would now speak to a family member, 64 percent to a friend and 25 percent to a doctor. He said: "Quite simply, these men and women are prized assets which need to be continually invested in".

The Congress leader referred to a news portal report on the 16,000-fold increase in the turnover of the company owned by Amit Shah's son Jay Shah before the firm was shut ahead of the November 8 demonetisation previous year.

But Rahul Gandhi's remark did not go well with Gujarat's former chief minister and BJP leader Anandiben Patel. "People of Gujarat are well aware of development of their state which happened under the BJP rule. And then you have Smriti behen who has embraced the people of Amethi even though she lost from here", said Shah.

Speaking in the same vein, Adityanath said the Gandhi family is used to only think about Italy and not Amethi.

"The Congress" attempt to divert attention from their own scams and misdeeds will not work as the people of India have seen through them repeatedly and comprehensively rejected the Congress' "Sultanate of Corruption'", she said. Irani had "embraced" Amethi "like a child" despite losing the election.

"A vast stretch of land was given by farmers long back for construction of the Samrat cycle factory". How many women are in the RSS? The BJP's women's wing in Vadodara also staged a protest against Gandhi's statement.
