Aurangabad/Godda: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today said like 2004 and 2009, the NDA's “gas balloon” would burst again while claiming that the UPA government did remarkably well, as the BJP talked divisive politics.
“Their balloon of India Shining burst in 2004 as well in 2009... This time they are also filling a similar balloon with a gas cylinder which will also burst like in the past,” Gandhi told an election meeting at Aurangabad in Bihar.
Like in the past, the NDA is playing colourful music and distributing sweets in anticipation of winning the polls, but it will meet the same fate as in 2004 and 2009, he said.
Ridiculing BJP's Gujarat model of development, he said, “Bihar needs its own model of development and not any other model from outside.”
Earlier at Godda in Jharkhand, he said that the ‘Gujarat model' would not be applicable in the entire country.
“The UPA government has performed remarkably well... and don't get misguided by tall promises, and vote for the Congress candidates.”
