Vote in Congress and get ready for the witch hunt: PM Narendra Modi


HIMMATNAGAR / SURENDRANAGAR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday warned the people of Gujarat that they should be prepared for a witch hunt if they chose to elect a government other than BJP.

In a setback in the 2012 assembly election, when Modi accused the UPA government in the center of doing a gross injustice to Gujarat, the prime minister said that an attempt was made to dislodge his government while he was the CM. "Between 2004 and 2014, the remote control government damaged Gujarat and treated it as if it were not part of India," he said, referring to the two Manmohan Singh regimes. "Using fake cases, they pushed police officers and (BJP chief) Amit Shah to jail. Can they have that opportunity again? ", He said at a large gathering in the town of Himmatnagar, Sabarkantha district.

Modi was referring to the arrest of Shah, then Minister of the Interior of Gujarat, and four policemen graduated in the case of Sohrabuddin Shaikh's encounter. Shah was arrested in 2010 and police arrests began in 2007. All were dismissed or acquitted.

"Even if you vote by mistake for them (Congress), your fingers will burn until the night," Modi said. "If you push the button for them, they will destroy everything and Gujarat is the first on target."

In Surendranagar, Modi told the crowd: "We set a record in 2014, winning all 26 seats Lok Sabha of Gujarat. The challenge this time is to ensure that a maximum number of opposition candidates lose their deposits. "

With the April 23 poll in Gujarat a few days away, the campaigns hit a feverish peak in the state. While Modi is on a two-day tour of northern and central Gujarat, Congressional President Rahul Gandhi will campaign in Saurashtra-Kutch and southern Gujarat on Thursday.
