Narendra Modi on Tuesday latched on to a Commerce and Industry Ministry-sponsored report to slam Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, saying they have nowhere to go after "toffee model" of Gujarat's land acquisition policy was adjudged as the best practice by their own government.
The report released today has showcased the Gujarat model of land acquisition as the best practice, which can be "emulated" by other states with some modifications.
"You (Sonia and Rahul) have been abusing Modi, but your sins have overflowed. The report released by your Commerce and Industry Ministry, not Gujarat government, says the land policy of Gujarat is the simplest...
"It says other states should follow the path of Gujarat in land acquisition for industrial progress and development.
Madam Soniaji, Rahul Bhaiyya what will you do now? You had been terming it 'toffee model' and 'baloon'. Now the same toffee model has been given trophy by your government," he said in a scathing attack on Gandhis while addressing a 3D rally.
Citing the report, he took a jibe at Congress, saying it was clear that its luck was bad and its "death" was certain.
"It's good they have been slapped a day before polls," he said.
Rahul in his campaign has often derided the land acquisition policy in Gujarat as "toffee model" under which select industrialists were given land for the price of toffees.
Talking of his rally in Gandhi family bastion of Amethi, he said he has hit a nail in the coffin of Congress and there was a talk of development in the high profile Lok Sabha seat for the first time.
