Amit Shah, Smriti Irani slam Rahul in Congress bastion

Rahul Gandhi welcomed by Shaktisinh Gohil ay Ahmedabad airport
The Union government has transitioned from "Beti Bachao" to "Beta Bachao", Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said today in another swipe following a report alleging that a firm owned by BJP chief Amit Shah's son saw a huge rise in turnover after the party came to power.
In Gandhi's sharp and pointed attacks, his party men see signs of the new, more savvy and confident leader set to take over as Congress president.
In her speech, Irani claimed Rahul Gandhi, who often speaks about the plight of farmers, has not yet returned the land occupied by the Trust in Amethi.
Rebutting the allegations by the two leaders, senior Congress leader Akhilesh Pratap Singh said the 66-acre land parcel was bought by the Trust in an auction after the bicycle company was declared bankrupt by the Delhi High Court.
At a rally in Kheda district, Gandhi asked a crowd: "What has happened to vikaas (development) in Gujarat?". Khakhi shorts were a trademark RSS uniform for drills, worn with pride by many BJP icons including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, before the organisation embraced a new look previous year. He will be the fifth generation Nehru-Gandhi family member to head the Congress - a very long time indeed to play dynastic politics! One is Gandhi-Nehru model while another is Modi model.
Taking a swipe at Gandhi, Shah said Rahul had never visited Amethi collector's office even after representing the constituency multiple times, while Smriti Irani had been visiting the place even after losing the last poll.
He said the people of Gujarat know what development is.
The Congress leader referred to a news portal report on the 16,000-fold increase in the turnover of the company owned by Amit Shah's son Jay Shah before the firm was shut ahead of the November 8 demonetisation past year.
"I can give you one guarantee that if Congress comes to power in Gujarat, the government will not be a government of three or four business people".

"The land was given for construction of the Samrat cycle factory". To make Rahul Gandhi ineffective in Gujarat, it is important for Amit Shah to attack him in his pocket borough. How many women are there in leadership roles? "Have you ever seen any woman in shakhas wearing shorts?" he said mocking the traditional dress of the organisation.
