In yet another blistering attack on the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that the party hates Gujarat, development, poor and him. 

Referring to Mahatma Gandhi, PM Modi further said that the BJP has a legacy of ‘Fakir Gandhi’ while the Congress “has the legacy of royalty”. 

“They (Congress) hate development, they hate Gujarat, they hate Modi and now they hate sweat also. That is because they have never had to sweat it out in life and work hard. They are mocking everyone who works hard. This is their mindset. Such hatred for the poor is shocking,” said PM Modi while addressing a rally in Palitana. 

“They were born with all privileges and are disconnected with the roots,” he added.

PM Modi further alleged that the grand-old party of delaying the Narmada project and said that if party would have remained in power, the water of River Narmada would have never reached the farmers. 

"Do you remember the water shortage in the region? This is because the Congress controlled the tanker business. It suited them to have this shortage. The BJP has changed this in the last 22 years. We have made the tanker industry irrelevant," he said.
