Modi Targets Jogi, Gandhi Family in Chhattisgarh

Narendra Modi today targeted former Chhattisgarh chief minister Ajit Jogi, saying he might be knowing some "secret" about Gandhi family which made him indispensable to Sonia Gandhi though he has been losing in the tribal state.

"I think about it that he has been losing, the party (Congress) is divided in factions but Madam Sonia can't do without him. He must have a secret about this family that they fear him. Let the results come on May 16 and then this will be found," the BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate said, referring to the day of counting.

Claiming that Congress will not be able to open its account in the third phase of elections held yesterday, Modi said the party's tally will not reach double-digit in any state.

"There will be some states where Congress won't be able to win a single seat," he said, asking people to vote for the BJP candidates in Lok Sabha elections to ensure all-round development as the party is already in power in the state.

He also targeted Rahul Gandhi, saying the Congress Vice-President was born with a golden spoon and was incapable of understanding the pain of the poor while he, working his way up as a tea-seller in trains, has lived it.

Taking a dig at him, Modi said Gandhi went to the houses of poor families like a tourist going to Taj Mahal.

"They go with the media and to ensure good photographs and then eat up the poor's meal," he said.

Congress, he said, did not believe in democratic values and had been questioning him everywhere instead of accounting for its actions.

"It is run by a dynasty.... It believes people are in its pocket and considers it beneath itself to give answers to the people," he said, hitting out at the ruling party over price rise and corruption.
