Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi on Monday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is like a “jadugar”, or magician, who has been “performing tricks” on the people of Gujarat and the country, as he visited Patidar strongholds in north Gujarat that saw huge crowds greet and listen to him.
The All India Congress Committee (AICC) Vice-President was on the last and fourth leg of his three-day visit to poll-bound Gujarat. He concluded his Gujarat tour by visiting the BJP bastion and the home of Patidar agitations of Mehsana and Visnagar later on Monday.
Earlier, talking to the media he said just like magicians perform tricks which are mere tricks and not real, similarly Prime Minister Modi has been perfoming tricks in Gujarat on the people.
On Monday, he began his tour of north Gujarat by visiting the Veer Meghmaya temple and had ‘darshan’ there. After that, he interacted with Dalit leaders of Patan. The Gandhi scion continued his attacks on Prime Minister Modi and lambasted the central government on various fronts like demonetisation, the Goods and Services Tax (GST), unemployment and corruption.
