Gujarat polls: PM Narendra Modi playing politics of religion, says Congress

In the latest war of words between the Congress and BJP in the run-up to the Gujarat polls, Congress MP Anand Sharma on Wednesday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi an "ignorant prachar-shastri" who was "less literate in economics", leading to the country's economy getting "derailed". The Congress party is certain about one thing, only matters concerning governance in Gujarat and failure of BJP regime in last 22 years should be debated", a party source said.In order to sustain pressure on Congress to clarify its stand, later in the Tuesday evening, BJP chief Mr Shah also tweeted in Hindi stating: "I demand that Congress party should clarify its stand on the double standard it is adopting on Ram Mandir construction issue. It was on this day in 1992, the Babri Masjid at Ayodhya was demolished.In Delhi, on Tuesday, Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan said,"The matter is being heard by the Supreme Court. They are least bothered about the nation", Modi said. "Now Congress links Ram Mandir with elections".

The court didn't accept his appeal and set the final hearing for February 8, 2018. In Netrang, which falls in the Adivasi belt of the state, Modi said: "We brought 108 service for free". Though Sibal did not explicitly mention elections, his request was clear, to which the bench also expressed surprise.

"Rahul ji is visiting temples in Gujarat but on the other hand Kapil Sibal is being used to delay Ram janmbhoomi case".

The Congress, however, distanced itself from Sibal's argument in the court. Modi also made an attempt to reach out to Muslim women. "This issue is for the rights of women... elections come later humanity comes first", Modi said. "When the triple talaq case was pending in the SC, the government submitted an affidavit even as the media outlets were suggesting that Modi will remain silent because of the Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh", he said. Establishing a local connect, Modi said: "There was a time people said "dikri ne banduke dejo pann Dhanduke na deta (give your daughter to the gun (kill her), but do not get her married to one from Dhandhuka)' due to water shortage".

He said that his party was synonymous with development in the state, and although young people may not remember what it was like, before BJP worked in the state, most people would know what the situation was like.
