New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday accused the Congress party of spreading unimaginable lies about Gujarat and about him “personally” and said the people of the state would give a “fitting reply” to the “negativity” of the opposition.
In a series of tweets the Prime Minister also said that victory of BJP is a guarantee for a bright future.
“The lies that our worthy opponents have spread, about Gujarat, Gujarat’s growth and about me personally is something I had never imagined. It is natural for every Gujarati to feel hurt. People of Gujarat will give a fitting reply to the negativity and lies of the opposition,” he said.
The Prime Minister said with BJP governments in Gujarat and at the Centre, together they will take the state to new heights.
“With the Government of India and Government of Gujarat working together, the strength rises manifold. This 1+1 is not 2 but 11 and together we will take Gujarat to new heights,” he said.
Modi also said that no Gujarati will let go of a golden opportunity for development of the youth and coming generations.
“Victory of BJP is a guarantee for a bright future. I am devoting my life for the betterment of crores of people of Gujarat and India. Have been fortunate to always get your blessings. I am sure you will continue to bless us in these elections too by voting for BJP,” the Prime Minister said.
He urged the people to vote in record numbers and called upon them to not only give the BJP an overwhelming majority but also ensure that BJP wins in every polling booth across the state.
“Campaigning for the Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017 ends. After three and a half years, I got the honour to travel across the length and breadth of Gujarat to seek the blessings of the people. During my travels across Gujarat, the level of affection I have received from the people is unparalleled in my 40 years of public life. This affection gives me strength and motivates me to devote all my time for India’s development,” he said.
Modi has addressed over 30 rallies in Gujarat. Polling is scheduled for the second phase on December 14.
The first phase of Gujarat assembly elections on Saturday saw a 66.75 per cent turnout, according to final figures released by the Election Commission on Sunday.
The counting of votes will take place on December 18.
