At his acerbic best yet again, BJP national president Amit Shah targeted the top brass of the Congress and the state leadership. Shah added that Manmohan Singh and Bhupinder Singh Hooda presided over concurrent regimes of scams.

“Haryana gave us seven out of the eight seats that we contested and thus its share of contribution in giving Modi the mantle of the premier of the country is immense. We want the same here too,” said Shah. “Dalits and women have been the worst hit by the oppressive and regressive Congress regime in Haryana,” he alleged.

Shah managed to strike a chord with Gurgaon residents when he brought up the issues of change in land use which he alleged had been used to impoverish Haryana farmers to profit private builders and developers. “If the farmers of Haryana want things to change positively, they will have to vote us to power here as they did in the Lok Sabha elections. Once a land of prosperous farmers, Haryana has been reduced to penury as the agri growth rate has plummeted to around three percent,” he said.

Drawing a contrast, Shah said, “Agricultural growth in MP and Gujarat are in double figures. There farmers have 24 hours of power. You want the same, vote us to

Shah added, “After a long time we have got a talking prime minister. In UPA-1 and 2, every minister behaved as the PM of his ministry, and Manmohan Singh was not considered the Prime Minister.”
