PM 'bows' to people of Gujarat ahead of visit

"The government is actively striving to remove any issues that GST may have".

Modi will address the "Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan" being organised by the state BJP to celebrate the conclusion of the saffron party's "Gujarat Gaurav Yatra" (march for Gujarat's honour).

Otherwise, why Modi during his speech at a rally in Gandhinagar, Gujarat, on Monday instead of hailing the GST, made a decision to subtly admit its failure by blaming all parties, including the Congress (the PM's favourite punching bag on all occasions, especially the mother-son duo of party president Sonia Gandhi and VP Rahul) for its introduction without due planning? He said Congress opposed BJP to implement various schemes.

"Tomorrow, the prime minister will give his guidance to around seven lakh BJP workers at the Gujarat Gaurav Mahasammelan to be held in Bhat village", he said.

He then challenged the Congress to fight the elections on the plank of development, instead of "trying to manipulate the people". They always try to mislead people by terming BJP communal, anti-Dalit, anti-tribal party of upper castes and party of urban India, " Modi said, adding that now highest number of Dalit and tribal MPs belong to the saffron party.

Gandhinagar - Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said Goods and Services Tax (GST) was a collective decision of various state governments in which the Centre had a small role to play and the Congress was "an equal partner". He said, as promised, his government reviewed the way the new indirect tax regime was working after three months following which several changes were made to fulfil their demands. Congress has always fought on communal issues and they are scared that developed society would not vote for them.

He also tried to assuage the concerns of the trading community about penal action they might face for their past accounting. "I am sure "Vanshvaad" will be defeated".

Modi said there was a "conspiracy" was by the Congress to put him in jail, in an apparent reference to accusations of his involvement in the 2002 post-Godhra riots.

Since November 8, 2016, about 5000 bogus companies deposited Rs 4,000 crore in banks, Modi says. They did not speak about the work of Morarji Desai or his dedication and commitment to Mahatma Gandhi's ideals. "They should not spread lies", he said. Modi reminded them of the "injustice" suffered by Sardar Patel, Morarji Desai and other tall leaders.
