Shakti Kendra Incharges’ meeting at Surat and Tapi

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi once again came in the firing line of BJP National President Shri Amit Shah in Surat on 10 November, 2017. Addressing over 1,200 party workers of Surat and Tapi districts in Bardoli town, Shri Shah said the BJP government in Gujarat has given 13 lakh acres of land to the tribals. “Tribals’ development in true sense happened only after the BJP came to power in Gujarat. Congress has always used adivasis as their vote bank. But now this has become a thing of the past,” he said.

Exhorting the partymen to root out Congress from the state, he said, “All people refer to BJP as their own party and being a cadre-based organization, all victories of the BJP can be attributed to its workers. In 2017 assembly election, too, BJP’s victory is certain, but the hard work of workers would help the party cross the target of 150 seats.”

“This election is different and we would fight it a different way,” he added. Shri Shah tore into Rahul Gandhi for his remarks on unemployment in Gujarat and said the Gandhi scion is not aware that 13,672 youths from his Amethi constituency are working and earning in this state.

“People of Gujarat very well know such people who poke fun at the state’s development. This is the same person who has not been able to set up a collector office or public health centre in his own constituency,” he added.
