Ahmedabad, Apr 23 (ANI): Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Narendra Modi on Thursday invited Congress President Sonia Gandhi to Gujarat.
“Sonia Gandhi is coming to Gujarat for campaigning. Though the campaign is almost over here, we would welcome not only Sonia but also her son Rahul Gandhi and daughter Priyanka Gandhi. All of them should come to Gujarat. They are most welcome. I am inviting you all to my state to campaign,” Modi said at an election rally here.
Modi also asked Sonia Gandhi to witness the hospitality of Gujarat.
“Soniaji, please try to do one thing. Please stay in Gujarat for a week. Please witness our hospitality. If Congress is not ready, our people would host you. Soniaji, please guide us, if we are lagging behind in development compare to Rai Bareli where your party is ruling since Indira Gandhi’s time. At the same time, please witness our state’s development and if you find something good, please replicate that in your Rae Bareli and Amethi areas,” he added.
Sonia Gandhi is scheduled to visit Gujarat on April 24. She is going to address rallies at Jetpur (Saurashtra), Kheralu (North Gujarat) and Halol (Central Gujarat). (ANI)
