New Delhi: Just a few days before Gujarat Assembly Elections 2017, PM Narendra Modi held a rally in Bharuch on Sunday in which he said that Congress is wiped out in Uttar Pradesh (during civic polls) as the state knows the Congress well and so does Gujarat.

"In UP, where Congress ruled for decades, the state from where generations of top Congress leaders belong. We saw what happened there in the local elections," PM Modi said.

"Bharuch and Kutch are districts with significant Muslim populations. And, if you see the districts which developed rapidly under the BJP tenure in Gujarat, the names of these two districts figure prominently," he added.

"When there were floods in Banaskantha, Congress leaders were in Bengaluru to save 1 leader from losing a Rajya Sabha poll. That same leader is topmost Congress leader but what did he do for Bharuch? He was unable to work for Narmada,neither did he think about ro-ro ferry," Modi said.

"My problem with Congress politics is simple- they oppose us just for the sake of opposing. They oppose things like bullet train only because they could not take this initiative forward and are envious someone else is," Modi said in Bharuch.

"Do you remember the poor law and order situation in Bharuch when Congress was in power? Curfews and violence was common here. BJP changed this, not only in Bharuch but all over Gujarat" PM Modi said.
