New Delhi: Hitting back at the Congress, BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today taunted it for not naming Rahul Gandhi as the Prime Ministerial candidate saying Sonia Gandhi wanted to save her son from being sacrificed politically in view of "imminent" defeat in the Lok Sabha polls.

While attacking UPA's policies, Modi unveiled his vision for India,  promising to develop 100 smart cities and set up IITs, IIMs and AIIMS in every state while projecting India as a brand worldwide.

He talked about steps like creation of a 'Price Stabilisation Fund' and having a system of realtime data of agricultural produce to deal with the problem of inflation and creating more job opportunities to deal reduce poverty.

At the National Council here, senior leader L K Advani cautioned the party against "over confidence" citing the example of 2004 even as he praised Modi, whose elevation as PM candidate he had been opposed initially.

The Council adopted a political resolution which attacked the Congress and its government, saying they were responsible for slow economic growth, failure to check terrorism, vote bank politics, and decline of constitutional institutions.
