New Delhi, Dec 2: The News24 Conclave Gujarat Manthan certainly witnessed the most high voltage interactive session as the two powerful women
from the BJP and Congress ignited the session by mouthing powerful comments. While the BJP side was ably represented by Meenakshi Lekhi and the
Congress side represented skillfully by the Priyanka Chaturvedi.
The discussion kick-started on a controversial topic: On what issues is BJP fighting the Gujarat Election? BJP leader Meenakshi Lekhi clearly pointed out that in the present election they are not banking on any issue.
To this Congress' Priyanka Charurvedi said that the mere presence of Congress in Gujarat is unnerving them that is why they are picking up issues from non issues and are interested to know how many times Rahul Gandhi goes to temples and ae fudging with the temple registers.
News24 pointed out that Congress just wants BJP to come out in open on issues of so-called-development and will not budge even if non-issues are raked in. Even the PM and the finance minsters are landing here every now and then to woo the voters.
Hitting below the belt Congress put out sharp questions on GST, inflation which was handle well by Lekhi.
Who is the son of Gujarat? To this Congress hit out sharply that for BJP only Narendra Modi is the son of Gujarat, not the millions of youth, not numerous traders, not the poor of the state who are facing the wrath of inflation in the most brutal way. To this Lekhi said that no one understands Gujarat better than Modi.
Priyanka shooted a pointed question when she said that 'sabka saath sabka vikas' was so true then why some sections in the state are demanding reservations. Why this has become such a big movement in Gujarat?
Priyanka was also attacked that Congress had given very few tickets to women in the state.
Pointed questioned were also hurdled towards for BJP for opening very few schools and universities in all these 22 years.
"BJP is suffering from cataract so the party cannot see the real problems in Gujarat. Modi ministers should visit Surat to find out whether Gujaratis are creating jobs or losing jobs," said Priyanka Chaturvedi.
On fewer job opportunities in the state Lekhi said that Gujaratis are job creators not just job seekers.
Commenting on Modi Chaturvedi said," Who can forget that PM Modi's note ban had killed 135 Indians. How can this son of Gujarat think of fighting from Uttar Pradesh and not from Gujarat. Today the Gujarati women are asking BJP where is the promised attack on price rise. PM with 56-inch chest should answer why he kept shut when Hafiz Saeed was released.
