Amit Shah ‘praises’ Rahul Gandhi for doing what Mahatma Gandhi wanted

BJP national president Amit Shah is on a three day visit to Haryana starting today. Taking a jibe at the Congress party while addressing a massive gathering at Rohtak, Shah said, “Gandhi ji ne kaha tha azadi ke turant baad Congress ko bikhed dena chahiye… khair wo Gandhi ne nahi kiya ab koi Gandhi kar raha hai“. (Gandhiji had said that right after attaining independence, Congress party should be disbanded. What that Gandhi couldn’t do, another Gandhi is is doing.)

Obviously, he was referring to Rahul Gandhi, the current Vice President of Congress.

After taking jibes at the vice president, Shah trained his guns at the party, saying, “Jab Congress ki sarkar aati hai desh ka growth rate neeche jaata hai, BJP ki sarkar aati hai growth rate upar jaata hai.” (Whenever Congress comes to power, the growth rate of India declines, and whenever BJP comes to power, growth rate goes up.)

Asserting that the BJP is determined to ensure eradication of dynasty politics and caste based politics, Shah hailed the saffron party for development across the country.

Eyeing the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Shah is on a 110-day nationwide tour which began from Jammu in April this year. The focus of this tour is to increase the BJP’s footprints in the North-East and coastal regions of India where BJP does not have a stronghold. His Odisha tour was also in news.

Shah, who is also an MLA from Naranpura constituency of Gujarat will be contesting the Rajya Sabha elections from Gujarat which are slated to be held on August 8, 2017.
