Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala on Wednesday said the Prime Minister was "baffled" on seeing the BJP "losing" the Gujarat elections and that's why he is forced to resort to making irrelevant statements and talking about everything else other than Gujarat.
A day earlier, many rallies and meetings in the poll-bound state were cancelled due to bad weather conditions.
Cyclone Ockhi was expected to make landfall near the state capital Surat by Tuesday midnight; however, it gradually weakened.
He alleged that the Congress had dishonored both Ambedkar and Sardar Patel and also underlined that the opposition party failed to confer a Bharat Ratna to Ambedkar. Don't fear. If you had really carried out development then you would not have to talk about the Mogul era to China, rather you would have talked abut Gujarat's people, farmers, youth, shopkeepers, Dalits, backward castes.
He (Sibal) was arguing on the Ram Temple issue, which he is entitled to do. "During this work, we will not wear any scarves having BJP's election symbol", Sanghvi said. But, he said in Court to hear the case after 2019. "Shia, Sunni Waqf boards are agreeable to solve the Ayodhya dispute".
The Prime Minister also spoke about the recent verdict on the Tripal Talaq, also using it in the favour of the party, even though playing tactfully not to make it a political agenda.
"I am clear that on triple talaq; I will not be silent".
Modi said the Centre did not hesitate to take action after 19 Indian soldiers were killed in Uri attacks previous year, referring to Indian Army's "surgical strikes to neutralise the launch pads of terrorism in Pakistan occupied Kashmir". "Elections come later humanity comes first", said Prime Minister Modi. "Our Government worked for tribal welfare, ensured better education and healthcare", the Prime Minister said.
