"The people of Gujarat know about the development of their state..." "If Congress comes to power here, it will function as your government". Mr. Shah said Ms.

Singh, who was a BSP MLA from 2003 to 2007 before joining the Congress, said he was "saddened" by the policies of the Congress and felt "enthused by the development-oriented politics" of the BJP.

The Congress leader referred to a news portal report on the 16,000-fold increase in the turnover of the company owned by Amit Shah's son Jay Shah before the firm was shut ahead of the November 8 demonetisation a year ago. While the cycle long got punctured, they still continue to occupy the land illegally despite an eviction notice.

The Congress leader has been stopping on the way, talking to people, waving at them and promising change.

The electoral messaging for 2019 behind Mr. Shah's verbal attacks on Mr. Gandhi was clear with his lauding of Ms.
