Participating in a Q&A session at the University of California, Berkeley, last month, he said, "I am an Opposition leader, but Modi is also my Prime Minister".

Congress leaders dismissed Amit Shah's attacks saying that it is nothing but a tactic to divert the attention from the questions raised about his son Jay Shah's business operations.

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. Gandhi also slammed Modi for his claim that nothing happened in the country in 70 years. Since Modi became PM in 2014, the state has witnessed agitations by Patels and Dalits, leading to the replacement of former chief minister Anandiben Patel by Vijay Rupani in August 2016.

"If Rahulji believes that wearing shorts in India is a sign of empowerment, as a woman I want to contradict it", said Irani, who had challenged Rahul in Amethi in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

Gandhi, on Monday, began the second leg of the Navsarjan Yatra in Central Gujarat, where he will visit various districts as part of his three-day tour.

He asked the people that even though Rahul Gandhi has been there elected parliamentarian for so many years, then why is there no Collectorate Office in Amethi? according to a tweet by BJP Uttar Pradesh.

Urging the public to vote for the BJP in the next elections for the development of Amethi, Shah said that there were two models of development in Amethi - a "Nehru-Gandhi model" and the "Modi model".

Amethi: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday trained his guns on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi and accused him of being more interested in Italy than in the people of his parliamentary constituency Amethi.

He said the people of Gujarat know what development is. At the Santram temple here, Gandhi also interacted with the temple authorities and computers he also told a small gathering that the "tallest leader of the Congress", Mahatma Gandhi, had come to the shrine during the Dandi March in 1930.

"A vast stretch of land was given by farmers long back for construction of the Samrat cycle factory". The campaign was not focused on Modi and it attended to local issues.

The Election Commission is yet to announce the dates for Gujarat Assembly election, but it has to be conducted before mid-January as the current Assembly expires on January 22, 2018.
