Rahul Gandhi also asked why Modi was "silent" on the allegations made by the Opposition over Rafale deal and financial irregularities of a firm linked to BJP chief Amit Shah's son Jay Shah. "You now know that Congress can win elections in Gujarat", Rahul Gandhi said. When we went to Gujarat and we spoke to the people of Gujarat, they said there is no model. People of Gujarat told us there is no model. "BJP maligned the country and the Congress party for years together making false allegations of corruption as their principle strategy to gain power", Randeep Surjewala said during a press conference here.
In his letter to the governor, Rathod has said he extends his unconditional support to the BJP government.
On Saturday morning the Congress chief visited Ahmedabad and held zone-wise "introspection meetings" in Gujarat's Ahmedabad to ascertain reasons for the party's defeat.
He said the 2G verdict, which acquitted all the accused, was discussed in detail, with many members suggesting the BJP had hatched a conspiracy with the then comptroller and auditor general Vinod Rai to project a fictitious scam.
In Gujarat, the Congress has lost the election but the party has been boasting about the results as a symbolic victory for its cadre as it instilled a sense of confidence within the ranks.
"The whole architecture of the BJP is about lies". His mother and predecessor Sonia Gandhi was also present at the meeting taking place here. "The party will vigrously carry forward its legacy of struggle", he said.
