Launching a blistering attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday said that the former had betrayed the trust that people of Gujarat once reposed in him.
Speaking in Rajkot just two days before the first stage of the crucial assembly polls, Singh said that that Gujaratis had seen through the lies of the Modi government and his party, the BJP.
He said, “To match the growth of the UPA, the conomy under this government has to grow by over 10%. I’m reminded by a quote by Abraham Lincoln who said, ‘You can fool all the people some of the time, some people all the time but you can’t fool all the people all the time.'”
Gujarat goes to polls in two stages on 9 and 14 December with the counting scheduled to take place on 18 December.
