Sonia Gandhi "spreading lies" against Guj govt: Modi

"It is shameful how is spreading lies on issues about which Congress has lost right to speak," Modi told a poll rally.

"Mrs Gandhi says Gujarat roads are bad. Is that believable? She says Gujarat farmers are ruined.

Is that how Gujarat sees 11 per cent growth in agriculture?" Modi said.

Earlier in the day, while addressing poll rallies in Mandvi in South Gujarat and Keshod in Saurashtra, the UPA chairperson had criticised BJP's development claims in Gujarat terming them as "hollow and false".

Treading cautiously, Sonia highlighted "failures" of the state on a range of fronts including and order, welfare of farmers and tribals, amongst others, without naming the Gujarat Chief Minister.

"Women do not find it safe going outside after 6:30 PM in Delhi.... But Madam Sonia ji says situation of and order is not good in Gujarat... She has no right to speak on and order," Modi said reacting to Sonia's comment.

The chief minister addressed public rallies in Falla, Jamnagar and Ahmedabad.

Giving an example of the girl, who had been arrested from Palghar in Maharashtra for her comments on Facebook about late Bal Thackeray, Modi said, "She prefers to stay in Gujarat over Maharashtra."

The girl and her family have shifted to Gujarat.

"Think seven times before spreading canards on Gujarat," Modi said. (More)
