Gujarat Assemby polls Amit Shah kicks off 'Gujarat Gaurav Yatra' from Vallabhbhai Patel’s birth place Karamsad

The state BJP on Sunday set itself to implementing party president Amit Shah's directive to take the decisions taken at the two-day national executive meeting held recently at Delhi to the grassroots workers by the end of this month.

For the key assembly elections, the Congress - which hopes to leverage any anti-incumbency sentiment against the BJP, which has ruled Gujarat for two decades straight - has designed its attack around development, coining the slogan "Vikas Gando Thayu Chhe or development gone crazy" as it points to potholed roads and skewed development.

Addressing the gathering, Shah accused the Congress of doing "injustice" to Gujarat, generation after generation, and said that in the upcoming Assembly election, the people of the state will make fun of those who "mock Gujarat's development model".

The "Sonia-Manmohan Singh" government, during the UPA's 10-year rule, did "great" injustice to Gujarat by holding up the Narmada dam project, he alleged. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi has waived off Rs 13, 0000 crore loan of 15 richest industrialists of the country", Rahul had said during his Gujarat visit. Everyone has the right to see dreams. To win polls, you need to do some hard work.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also said the company will work to make political advertising on its platform more transparent. It also found another 179 related accounts and blocked those after determining they broke the site's rules.

Gandhi completed the first phase of his statewide yatra last week as he toured Saurashtra region for three days. The BJP finished Ijju Shaikh, Latif, and Mammu Miyan Panju Miyan to give a peaceful Gujarat, " Shah said while referring to gangsters based in Gujarat.

Before the rally, Mr. Shah and Chief Minister Vijay Rupani paid tributes to Sardar Patel at his ancestral home. The primary itinerary shows that Modi will also visit Rajkot to lay the foundation stone for International Airport at the city before moving to South Gujarat for another infrastructure project for Bhaddbhut weir in Bharuch District. Shah said that it is the Congress party that is creating obstacles in the development of the state.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Shah will participate in the concluding ceremony of the yatra.
