Rahul was lucky that he got such opposition: Shah

Vastavam web: Mocking Rahul Gandhi as a “babua” (child), BJP president Amit Shah today said the Congress chief keeps attacking the government for not doing one thing or another but should instead give account of the works of his three generations who ruled India for decades.Addressing workers of Jaipur Rural Lok Sabha constituency represented by Union minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Shah also took a jibe at the rival party over its “happiness” on the BJP’s defeat in bypolls and said he considered himself lucky that he has got such an opposition which was satisfied with victory in a few by-elections even though it was losing power in many states.”‘Arre babua’, tell me brother what you have done in 70 years? Your three generations were in power for 70 years and if they had done all these works then it would not be our luck to provide people toilets and poor mothers gas cylinders,” he said.

The opposition is disconnected from the ground, Shah said and, in an apparent attack on Gandhi, added that nobody knows when he goes on a vacation and comes back.Temperature in Gujarat and Rajasthan soars to 50 degrees Celsius and it is difficult to tolerate it, he said wryly.Shah said the difference between other parties and the BJP was that their soul was their leader while workers were its soul. The BJP has also worked to propagate its ideology and enhance the country’s prestige, and not merely to get power, he said.

“We are lucky that the world’s most popular leader in Narendra Modi is leading the country and under him it is marching to become ‘vishwa guru’,” he said.It was due to its works that the BJP won elections in so many states and is now ruling 20 of them.
