I have seen unprecedented support for BJP in Gujarat: PM Modi

"You may die but the Congress will eat malai (cream)", he said, launching a broadside against the Opposition party apparently for having an alliance with caste leaders like Hardik Patel, Jignesh Mevani and Alpesh Thakor ahead of the Gujarat elections. We saw what happened there in the local elections. Media had to ask Indiraji (late prime minister Indira Gandhi) before publishing something.

"Modiji, Do tell Gujarat & Country about the victims of yours & Amit Shah's "internal democracy" in BJP, namely - Sh". "A youngster named Shehzad Poonawala has exposed the rigging that is taking place in the Congress president polls. So, what the youngster Shehzad is saying is not unusual it is the Congress culture".

The PM's comments come on the heels of a finely-tuned Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) outreach campaign among the minority as well as the majority communities in Gujarat, which has the Congress anxious.

'The trends of polls show that the people do not want to hold the hands of the dynasty. "The youth are not ready to accept the grand old party", PM says. He said that Congress should introspect why it faced defeat everywhere.

"Do you remember the poor law and order situation in Bharuch when Congress was in power?" Congress minus dynasty will get 30 percent more votes. "They oppose things like bullet train only because they could not take this initiative forward and are envious someone else is", he said.

Earlier this week, Poonawalla had claimed that the poll process to choose the Congress president was stacked in Rahul's favour just because he belongs to the Gandhi family.

Mr Surjewala also referred to senior BJP leaders like Mr Advani and Mr Joshi in another tweet.

However, he has been receiving flak from his party members, including accusations of him not being a Congressman.

Continuing his tirade against the Congress, Mr Modi said: "If one doesn't have democracy in his home (party), how can the person practise it in the country?" and said that the outcome of the election for the top post in the Congress was a foregone conclusion.
