Speaking at a public rally here, the Prime Minister said, "My problem with Congress politics is simple- they oppose us just for the sake of opposing. They oppose things like bullet train only because they could not take this initiative forward and are envious someone else is".
He added that Bharuch and Kutch are districts with significant Muslim populations which developed rapidly under the BJP tenure in Gujarat and the names of these two districts have figured prominently.
"In Uttar Pradesh, where Congress has ruled for decades, the state from where generations of top Congress leaders belong, we saw what happened there in the local elections. Congress was wiped out. Uttar Pradesh knows Congress well and so does Gujarat," Prime Minister Modi said.
He added that when there were floods in Gujarat's Banaskantha, the Congress leaders were in Bengaluru to save one leader (Rahul Gandhi) from losing a Rajya Sabha poll.
"That same leader is the topmost Congress leader now but what did he do for Bharuch? He was unable to work for Narmada, neither did he think about Ro-Ro ferry," the Prime Minister asserted.
A political slugfest has erupted ahead of the elections, as the Congress is continuously attacking the BJP and vice-e-versa on several issues like development in Gujarat, the demonestisation, the Goods and Service Tax (GST) etc.
The two-phase Gujarat assembly elections will take place on December 9 and 14, while the results will be out on December 18.
