New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Monday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his Gujarat visit and said that rhetoric will rain down on Gujarat.
In his attacking tweet, Gandhi said: “मौसम का हाल: चुनाव से पहले गुजरात में आज होगी जुमलों की बारिश (Weather report: Ahead of elections, Gujarat will today have rain of rhetoric).”
With less than two months to go for the assembly election in Gujarat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a rally in the state on Monday.
The Prime Minister will address a rally in Gandhinagar where Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers from the state will be present.
Modi, who was also the Gujarat chief minister till 2014, tweeted: “I bow to the people of Gujarat for blessing BJP for decades. We will always fulfil the dreams of every Gujarati with full strength & vigour.”
However, the Election Commission of India has so far did not announce the poll dates in the state.
The principal opposition party, the Congress, has already alleged the BJP of pressuring the Election Commission to delay the announcement of the poll dates in the states to facilitate Modi to offer some benefits to the people just few days before the election.
The BJP is in power in Gujarat since 1995.
