Training his guns at the BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Sunday said the number of Below Poverty Line (BPL) families has increased in Gujarat during Modi's tenure as chief minister.

"Number of families under BPL has increased under Modi rule in a developed state like Gujarat. Another example of Gujarat model of development," he tweeted.

"Modi acolytes would again respond the way they have been trained to - give galis (expletives) but these are authentic statistics from planning commission".

On Oct 18, Singh had tweeted, "Expecting another volley of "Galis" from Modi acolytes! Would Modi agree for a debate on development? He lacks guts to face debate!"
