Ahmedabad : Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday night alleged that Congress has given his 'supari' (contract) to CBI to politically finish him and stop the progress of the state.
"Congress cannot digest the progress made by Gujarat and that is the reason they have given `supari' to CBI to finish Modi and stop the progress of state," Modi said at a function of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) here.
"I am confident that people of Gujarat will give a reply. Congress under former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi imposed emergency and people of Gujarat gave a befitting reply," Modi said.
"Congress leaders who are using the power of CBI, should understand that people of Gujarat will give a reply to them this time also," Modi said.
"Nobody can stop Gujarat's progress. Common man wants peace and security. There has been peace in the last 10 years because of the efforts of the people and police of the state," Modi said.
"Due to the peace we have been able to make rapid progress. But some elements are trying to destabilise this peace," Modi said.
Modi also criticised the Central Government over reported corruption in the organisation of Common Wealth Games.
"Corruption of crores of rupees have been done in the common wealth games, but those ruling in Delhi are not worried about it," Modi said.
Modi today inaugurated a sports complex, Ghodasar lake, pilot project of beautifying Kharicut Canal and expansion of Rukshamani Hospital.
He said in the last five years the AMC has spent crore of rupees for improving the infrastructure of Ahmedabad.
Total money spent in Ahmedabad during the last five years is more than what was spent during the earlier 50 years by the AMC. PTI
