It’s a fight between 3Gs of Cong. and BJP, says Shah

BJP president Amit Shah at an election rally in Dhanbad on Wednesday.  

BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday claimed that this Lok Sabha election is a fight between “3 Gs” of the Congress represented by the Gandhi family and those of the BJP exemplified by “gaon, gaumata and Ganga”.

Claiming that there is a wave in favour of Narendra Modi across the country, Mr. Shah also sought to compare a “workaholic” Prime Minister to a “vacation-loving” Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.

“For the Congress, 3G stands for Sonia (Gandhi), Rahul (Gandhi) and Priyanka (Gandhi). The BJP’s 3G are gaon (villages), gaumata (cow) and the Ganga,” Mr. Shah said and asked the people to choose the correct “3G”.

Mr. Shah claimed that Mr. Gandhi goes on vacations as soon as the temperature starts soaring during summer. “This [Opposition] alliance had kept the country’s security at stake for their vote bank. For us vote bank is not important. Elections will come and go, but security of the country is the topmost priority for us,” he said in rallies in Dhanbad and Jamshedpur.

‘Focus on security’

Describing infiltrators as termites, the BJP leader said while the implementation of the National Register of Citizens will drive out intruders, the Congress seeks to raise the issue of human rights.
