We gave Modi who speaks, says Amit Shah

Addressing a rally in Amethi, Amit Shah not only hit out at the Nehru-Gandhi family, he said that the BJP will ensure that Uttar Pradesh is as developed as Gujarat by 2022, media reported.

Praising Irani, who had lost to Rahul in Amethi in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, Shah said: "BJP had won four of the five Assembly seats because Irani has been visiting Amethi and working for the people even after losing in 2014". "Itni buri tarah haraya ki pit pitkar humein akal aagayi (They beat us so badly in 2014 that it drilled sense into us)", the Congress Vice President said in Vadodara, expressing "gratitude" to the BJP for his party's virtual wipeout after 10 years in power. Khakhi shorts were a trademark RSS uniform for drills, worn with pride by many BJP icons including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, before the organisation embraced a new look a year ago.

"Why was the VIP zone of the Nehru-Gandhi family deprived of development?"

The BJP leader also criticied Gandhi for making mockery of development in Gujarat and accused it of prefering vote bank politics. Hence, now the prime focus of the Congress in Gujarat is to bring back the focus of education on imparting knowledge.

Rahul Gandhi also took potshots at Modi in a tweet.

Victory in Beijing gives Nadal his 75th career crown, moving to within two titles of John McEnroe for fourth on the Open Era list. Writing for the playersvoice.com.au website, Kyrgios also called the final "a disappointing end to an otherwise good week".

Amethi also witnessed the attendance of Smriti Irani and chief minister Yogi Adityanath.

"This land belongs to the people, the farmers of Amethi and can not just be grabbed by the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation or any family", he said, adding that the land was not "kisi parivar ki bapauti". "People of Gujarat are well aware of development of their state which happened under the BJP rule".

The Congress vice-president again targetted Amit Shah's controversy-ridden son Jay Shah and said, "Have you heard of Start up India?" All this on a day when the Congress leader is on a three-day Navsarjan Yatra in Gujarat and BJP national president Amit Shah slammed Rahul for questioning the Gujarat development model.

"This land belongs to the people, the farmers of Amethi and can not just be grabbed by the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation or any family", he said, adding that the land was not "kisi parivar ki bapauti (heirloom of any one political family)". "I do not believe in suppressing anyone", he said. "People in Amethi are looking for an alternative", she said.

The CM with Shah and Smriti Irani in Amethi. Rahul Gandhi's remarks drew flak from BJP after he asked if anyone ever saw women in "shorts" at any Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) shakha. How many women are there in leadership roles?
