"Someone who served at a high position in our Air Force said that after 26/11, they went to then prime minister with a plan for surgical strikes. Sadly, then government did not show courage to do that. When we were attacked in Uri, see how we answered terrorists," says Modi.

"Why were Congress governments rejected in various states? Because they were not delivering on people's aspirations," says Modi.

He said cheaper LED bulbs have led to more savings, which has benefitted middle class families. "I want to ask the Congress why were LED bulbs priced high in your time."

PM says they were focussing on "Padhai for students, Kamai for the youth and Davai for the elderly. We have transformed the education sector in Gujarat."

"Since the BJP has formed the government in Gujarat, the state is ahead in employment opportunities. Parts of Gujarat have drawn people from all parts of the country," Modi added.

 "I want to ask you, if it was not for Sardar Patel where would we be? We recall with pride how Sardar Patel integrated the nation," says Modi. "People are not only keen to see the BJP win but also ensure that those who are defaming Gujarat are defeated."

"The Congress has a very 'able' lawyer in Kapil Sibal. He is always handling all the indefensible and wrong matters. In 2007 he came to Viramgam and said after the results are out Modi will be in Jail. He was very powerful in that government," says PM Modi.

"Why did the Congress not give constitutional status to the OBC commission? We got a bill but when we did so, they stalled it in the Rajya Sabha. This anti-OBC Congress should be severely punished by the people," says PM Modi.
