Keeping up his attack against the Congress, the Bharatiya Janata Party's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Tuesday accused the Ashok Gehlot government of failing to work for the people in Rajasthan and said that the party thinks about them only when the elections dates are closer.
Addressing an election rally in Alwar, Modi slammed Gehlot saying that Rajasthan does not want a government that has been sleeping for the past 55 months.
"Why are you letting such a government run the state that has been rebuked even by the Supreme Court?" the Gujarat chief minister asked.
Modi compared the state of affairs between Gujarat and Rajasthan holding Gehlot responsible for corruption, scams, criminal politicians and also the condition of roads in the desert state. He accused the Rajasthan CM for water shortage and water pollution.
"How can Gehlot even compare Rajasthan to Gujarat?" he asked.
Modi said that there have been 40 instance of communal violence in the state under Gehlot and cases of crimes against women and female foeticide have also gone up.
India will no longer tolerate a government as corrupt as the Congress and if the country has to progress it has to rid itself of the rampant corruption, Modi continued.
"The Congress says BJP is the world champion in corruption, when they have robbed the country and beyond," Modi said.
He appealed the people to vote in favour of BJP's Vasundhara Raje in Rajasthan.
Modi will address four more public meetings in the poll-bound state on Tuesday.
He will address the second meeting in Deeg Kumher constituency (Bharatpur) and the third one will be held in Bandikui in Dausa.
The fourth and fifth meeting will take place in Sawaimadhopur and Dudu (Jaipur) constituencies, respectively.
Polling will take place on December 1 in the state.
