Launching a strident attack on Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday asked the latter to stop fooling the people in the name of the Gujarat development model.

"Modiji, please stop making fools of Indians. The Bihar model is excellent, only the people's hands have been tied. When they are freed, Bihar will be unstoppable," said Rahul while addressing a rally here today.

He also said that Modi doesn't know that every person in Bihar has a radar, which helps them know when a person is not good.

He also alleged that the BJP instigates clashes between Hindus and Muslims, and Maharashtra people and UP people.

"There won't be any speech where you will not find any anger and arrogance. They just can't say anything good about anybody," he said.

He asserted that for the BJP the ongoing Lok Sabha elections are only taking place for Modi and they just want him to become the Prime Minister of the country.

"There is only one person in the whole country who knows everything. What happens in Bihar or in UP or in Gujarat, he knows everything. There are elections going on. They are not for the country. They are not for the youth or the poor. The elections are going on for just Narendra Modi. This is their ideology and they only want him to become the PM. Other than this they are not bothered about the rest of the country," he added.

He said that the people of this country have been working for the last 60 years, and that it if the country has progressed, then it is because of the people, who have worked for it.

He reiterated that the Gujarat model of development is nothing but a "toffee model" and alleged that there has been loot of public money in Gujarat to benefit big businessmen like Tata and Adani.

"In Gujarat, there is land equal to Aurangabad's size. It has been given to one businessman for a mere Rs. 300 crore at the rate of Rs.1 per metre. For Re 1, you get a toffee. This is toffee model not Gujarat model. It was the land of the poor and the farmers which was given to Adani," he alleged. (ANI)
