Hitting back at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s recent target questioning Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) party’s work in Gujarat state, party president Amit Shah on Monday advised the Congress vice-president to wear Gujarati spectacles if he wants to see development in the state.

“Rahul Gandhi should wear Gujarati spectacles and not the one made in Italy, then he will see the development in Gujarat,” Amit Shah said.

He further lashed out the Congress vice-president and said if Rahul dreams of Gujarat and development, then he has to visit Porbandar and not Italy.

BJP president Amit Shah took on the Congress party and accused them for inflicting ‘injustice’ on Gujarat, generation after generation. 

During his recent visit to state, Rahul Gandhi had questioned BJP’s Gujarat model of development where he termed it a failure by mentioning that no jobs were created. Wooing more presence for his party in the state, Rahul Gandhi assured that his party will try and rejuvenate Gujarat if it comes to power.

Rahul Gandhi while hitting out at the Modi government said that is has been able to provide employment to only 400 new youth as compared to 40,000 in China.

Gandhi was on a three-day visit to Gujarat for his Navsarjan Yatra in the poll bound state also spoke about his dream to see machines in China with ‘Made in Gujarat’ and ‘Made in India logo’.

Rahul Gandhi had also hit out the Prime Minister for waiving off loan of country’s rich industrialists. “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has waived off Rs 13, 0000 crore loan of 15 richest industrialists of the country,” Rahul had said during his Gujarat visit.

Amidst all this, according to sources, the elevation of Rahul Gandhi as Congress party president may take place after Diwali. 

Previously, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal had recently hit out at Rahul Gandhi over his speeches that he delivered in US varsities and said that Rahul Gandhi was spoiling India’s image abroad.
