Nehru-Gandhi family never meant to develop Amethi: Smriti Irani

Amit Shah

"Does this reek of cronyism", Union Minister Smriti Irani said in a statement, a day after her ministerial colleague Piyush Goyal defended the junior Shah. Adityanath said, "We will leave no stones unturned in developing Amethi or for that matter the entire state". "When BJP will seek votes in 2019, its leaders will not say what should be done but what have been done", he added.

All the attacks directed at Nehru-Gandhi family from their pocket borough came at a time when Rahul Gandhi is raising the heat and dust in the villages of Gujarat. The former chief minister of Gujarat and the current prime minister of the nation, Narendra Modi, has always considered profit as the prime focus of the education system, instead of providing good quality education to the people.

Gandhi said that the earlier Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government's record in generating employment was far better than that of the Modi government.

UP Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath and Union minister Smriti Irani, who lost to Rahul Gandhi in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, also hit on him. The Gandhi family did nothing for three decades. This comes a day after the Congress vice-president, while addressing a rally in Kheda district of Gujarat, asked a crowd: "What has happened to vikaas (development) in Gujarat?"

The handle also tweeted that Shah said, there are two models of development in the country, the Nehru-Gandhi model and the Modi model. Gujarat's people know the development it has seen; please look at your constituency Rahul Baba.

On Rahul Gandhi's repeated poser as to what the BJP had done, Shah said, "We have given a prime minister who speaks". I want to ask the "shahzade" of Congress as to what have your three generations given to Amethi... "The people of Amethi are asking for "Vikas" even as the local MP goes around the nation mocking "Vikas" and insulting the poor of India", she said.

The Textile Minister said she met people of Amethi and they are very disappointed.

Speaking at a public meeting here, Adityanath said the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation Trust chaired by Sonia Gandhi had "grabbed" land in the name of running a manufacturing unit- Samrat Cycles. How many women are in the RSS?

Gandhi, who talked to youth in Vadodara, accused the Sangh Parivar of "not being interested in giving rights to women" and said women were present at all levels in the Congress.
