Actor and BJP's Lok Sabha candidate for Ahmedabad-East seat, Paresh Rawal arrived in the city on Tuesday to kick start his election campaign and vouched to work for the people of his constituency.
Rawal made it clear that making Narendra Modi the prime minister is in his priority list. "To make Narendra Modi our next prime minster is the most important agenda for me and people of my constituency during this election," said Rawal, while replying to a question on his priorities. He was accompanied by two senior BJP leaders IK Jadeja and Pradipsinh Jadeja at the airport.
To a question on him being labelled as an "outsider", Rawal claimed he belongs to the city. "I am not at all an outsider. I belong to Ahmedabad and I usually stay here for almost one month once every year. Many of my relatives live here and my native place Paliad is also nearby," he claimed and added that he will first visit Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel's statue and then meet party workers in his constituency.
Rawal also lambasted Congress for not doing anything for 65 years. "I have full confidence in Modi and his policies. Just like Gujarat, he will transform India. Just like him, I will work for people. Congress was in power for 65 years, but they lack good intention, while Modi changed Gujarat in 12 years," he said.
