Rahul Gandhi in Gujarat: State govt should run from Gujarat and not Delhi, says Congress V-P

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi started his three-day roadshow on Monday in Gujarat. Today he is scheduled hold meetings with party workers and address a kisan sabha.

Continuing his campaign in the poll-bound state, Gandhi is scheduled to meet traders and businessmen in Rajkot on Tuesday, the second day of his visit.

He will also hold meetings with party workers and address a kisan sabha today while on his way to towns such as Dhrol and Tankara by road.

Gandhi began his three-day roadshow on Monday by offering prayers at Dwarkadhish temple in Dwarka and then addressed party workers and villagers in Bhatia village in Jamnagar district.

In a string of villages that he visited in Saurashtra region, the Congress leader interacted with locals on issues like corruption, unemployment, education and development.

Targeting the PM Modi-led NDA government on demonetisation and GST, he said, "They have no space in heart for the weak and poor sections of the society? but they open all the doors for the rich people of the society."

BJP meanwhile, called Rahul Gandhi's Gujarat visit "dramatic and laughable", saying that the campaign will boomerang on the Congress. "It will only benefit the BJP," state BJP spokesperson Bharat Pandya said in a release.
