Dediapada (Guj), May 1 (PTI) Taking a swipe at Narendra Modi in poll-bound Gujarat, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi today said the prime minister believes only in making people listen to him instead of listening to their problems.
Virtually launching the Congress’ campaign for the Assembly polls due later this year, Gandhi said if his party came to power in Gujarat, it will reach out to every section of the society.
Addressing a well-attended rally of tribals here in Narmada district, he asserted that the Congress will fight the polls with “full force” and defeat the BJP in Modi’s home state.
“As elections are due in Gujarat, I want to promise you that if Congress wins the polls, our government will be of everyone not just one person. Instead of just telling our Mann ki Baat, our government will try to understand your Mann ki Baat,” he said, in a dig at Modi over his monthly radio programme.
“The Congress does not believe in just telling our own Mann ki Baat, as we believe in listening to people. When our government will be formed here, we will listen to the people first and then work accordingly,” Gandhi said.
He said collective effort of people will be needed to change Gujarat, where the BJP has been in power for more than two decades.
“Our government will try to build Gujarat after coming to power. The Congress will fight this election with full force and defeat Narendra Modi and BJP here,” he added.
