(United) leader Ali Anwar hit out at Chief Minister Modi for his model of governance, saying that the (BJP) leader has deteriorated the condition of the state.

"Gujarat has been a developed state from the beginning. What has done? Narendra Modi has, in fact, deteriorated the state. There are huge numbers of people dying of malnutrition in Modi's Gujarat. The only thing he has done is that he has sold the land in Gujarat at shamefully low prices to big corporate houses" Anwar said here today.

Commenting on Gujarat's physical infrastructure growth Anwar said, "He (Narendra Modi) is looting the state. After he is removed only will the country get to know what the real state of affairs are in Gujarat."

Earlier in the week, Nobel laureate had controversially criticized Modi, who has been advocating what is popularly known as the 'Modi model of governance'.

Additionally, Sen told a television channel during an interview that Modi could have done more for Gujarat 's education, health and for secularism, instead of focusing solely on physical infrastructure development in that state.
