“Rahul baba is opposing because he is immature. Rahul Gandhi cannot see the country’s development as he is wearing Italian spectacles,” he said while addressing the party’s booth level workers for Chandigarh’s municipal elections next month.

“Rahul Baba is asking our contribution to the country. I want to tell him that we gave the country a prime minister who can speak,” Shah said.

“You had made such a person as Prime Minister whose voice was heard only by you (Rahul) and your mother (Sonia Gandhi). Are you asking us Rahul Baba what we have done?”

He did not stop there but went on to ridicule the Congress number two.

“I can understand, he is not experienced, but I feel like laughing, when his advisers, who are experienced even do not advise him what to speak,” Shah said.

The BJP chief also sought to deflect criticism of the government for difficulties the common man is going through since the demonetization announcement earlier this month.

“Till November 7, they were asking what steps our government has taken to tackle black money. But after November 8, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi banned currency of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 denominations, there is hue and cry among the opposition parties. All the parties, who are opposing this demonetisation are exposed now.”

He also sought to highlight the Modi government’s scam-free record.

“Not even a single charge of corruption has been leveled against any of our ministers, but during Congress regime, there were scams after scams totaling Rs 12 lakh crore.”

Shah also hit out at the Congress for following dynastic policies.

“Have you even seen a poor person becoming Prime Minister, but in BJP any booth level worker can become PM. Even media persons sitting here can tell who will be next president of Congress. They all will say, it is Rahul Gandhi,” he said.
