TARGETING RAHUL Gandhi at his constituency Amethi, BJP national president Amit Shah on Tuesday asked him what have "three generations of his family" done for the development of Amethi.

"For the first time in 35-40 years, I am seeing that the winning candidate (Rahul Gandhi) remains missing from his constituency and a defeated candidate (Irani) is giving time to the people", Shah said hailing the work being done in the area by Irani.

The Gandhi scion was seen shaking leg with the adivasis along with few Congress leaders.

The Congress is asking Prime Minister Modi to remove Shah as the BJP chief and order a probe by Supreme Court judges.

Gandhi, on Monday, began the second leg of the Navsarjan Yatra in Central Gujarat, where he will visit various districts as part of his three-day tour.

The BJP leader also criticied Gandhi for making mockery of development in Gujarat and accused it of prefering vote bank politics.

After Ahmed Patel's re-election to Rajya Sabha, the confidence of the Congress Party has gone up but it neither has big faces nor a viable leadership in Gujarat which atrophied in the last 15 years.

Shah also said that the newly elected BJP government in the state was working for the development of Uttar Pradesh and the state government had taken some important steps by announcing loan waiver for farmers and stepped up construction of houses for the poor.

"I want to ask the Congress Shehzada (Rahul Gandhi), Amethi voted for your three generations, what have you given them?" "The people of Gujarat, not BJP, will offer the report card of the state's development under the party rule". I want to ask you that you have been MP here for a long time but why is there no collector's office, TB hospital and Akashwani's FM here?

"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)". Chief minister Yogi Adityanath and state party chief Mahendra Nath Pandey were present on the occasion.

Speaking in the same vein, Adityanath said the Gandhi family is used to only think about Italy and not Amethi.

Slamming the Congress vice-president, she said, "The people of Gujarat will give a befitting answer to this slander and keep this "Sultanate of Corruption" as far from them as possible". Irani had "embraced" Amethi "like a child" despite losing the election.

"The land was given for construction of the Samrat cycle factory. God knows what mistakes women have committed that they can not be a part of RSS", Rahul said while interacting with a group of women in Vadodara. Ever seen any RSS "shakha" (branch) with women wearing shorts?
