Gujarat's 'development' touches select few: PM

Faulting the BJP government in Gujarat for failing to sustain balanced growth, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said Sunday that the state's development had benefited only a few. Addressing an election  

Jamnagar (Gujarat): In an attack on Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi said Tuesday that only one voice was heard in the state.

Gandhi also criticized the Gujarat government for neglecting important issues such as availability of water and jobs.

"Gujarat is shining but here you get water for 25 minutes every third day and 10 lakh youth are jobless," Gandhi said in this town, about 300 km from the state's main city Ahmedabad.

Addressing his first campaign rally in the state, Gandhi said that Modi didn't want to listen to the common people and that "only one voice is heard in Gujarat (that of Modi)".

Gandhi further said the power of Gujarat was in its youth and its poor but that strength was being suppressed by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

"Gujarat is not run by one man but by the people of the state," he said.

Praising the Congress-led central government for bringing the Right To Information (RTI) act, he said corruption cases in Gujarat would have remained hidden had it not been for RTI.

"People talk of corruption. We implemented RTI because we wanted to give voice to the common man," he said.

After Jamnagar, Gandhi will head to Amreli and Ahmedabad to address public rallies. Gujarat goes to polls Dec 13 and 17. The results will be out Dec 20.
