Our government will provide all kind of help to states which will give priority to development,” he said in Vadodara on Sunday after laying the foundation stones for several projects.Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi has been needling the Modi regime at his rallies across Gujarat, with the Punchline that ‘development has gone crazy’ and the NDA’s tall promises have fizzled out. Modi claimed it was the erstwhile UPA that had been hostile to Gujarat’s development. “When I was Gujarat Chief Minister, I faced hostility…Efforts were made to stall industry and growth.Over the last three years, we have given important to Gujarat’s development…..our priority is development.” Modi lashed out at the opposition for criticizing demonetisation and the GST rollout, saying the process of taking important decisions on economic reform would continue.“After all reforms and hardcore decisions, the economy is on track and is going in the right direction. Many economists have agreed that the fundamentals of the economy are strong.” Modi said none had the right to point a finger at the Election Commission for not announcing the Gujarat poll dates along with those of Himachal Pradesh.
