Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah on Tuesday attended the inauguration ceremony of various development schemes in Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi. Union Minister Smriti Irani, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath were also present at the inauguration ceremony. Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, BJP president Amit Shah hit out at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and said, “I want to ask Rahul Gandhi, who always ask the 3-year record of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s work, but Amethi wants to know what he has done during his party’s rule for 3 generations. The people of Gujarat know what development is, but you have made a mess of Amethi.”

Speaking at the event, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said, “With the development of Amethi, we will develop the entire state. In the name of samrat cycle, the alleged conspiracy to take over the land in the name of Rajiv Gandhi foundation, we will not let happen this. The land will either be of the farmers, or it will be used for establishing industries but we will not allow any land to be left pending in the name of some foundation or family.”

Union Minister Smriti Irani, who had earlier fought in general elections against Rahul Gandhi in Amethi, said, “The people of Pipri village told hat they went to meet the MP (Sansad) but he did not had time to meet those people. Smriti Irani further indirectly lashed out at Rahul Gandhi and said, “One who does even knew the difference between a relay transmission and a FM station, how appropriate would it be if that person will lecture about development. Smriti Irani said it was an issue of concern for the congress party.

The Bharatiya Janata Party today launched a number of development programmes at UPSIDC Maidaan in Amethi before their address. Earlier, while taking on Rahul Gandhi who had previously said that Gujarat model of development was a failed model, BJP president Amit Shah said that for Rahul Gandhi to see Gujarat’s development, he will have to see it through the prism of Gujarat and not that of Italy.
