Katihar (Bihar): In a retort to Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi's criticism of Gujarat model of development, BJP Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi today described UPA's governance as “RSVP model” in which a person was able to multiply his earnings from Rs one lakh to Rs 400 crore in five years.
Commonly seen in invitation cards and letters, ‘RSVP' stands for “Repondez s'il vous plait”, a French phrase which means ‘Reply if you please'.
However, giving his own meaning to ‘RSVP', Modi decoded it as “Rahul, Sonia, Vadra and Priyanka” while addressing a rally here.
In an apparent reference to Robert Vadra, husband of Priyanka Vadra, he said “it's the magical effect of RSVP model of development that a person's earning rises from Rs one lakh to Rs 400 crore in five years.”
“Those laughing at the Gujarat model please tell us about the RSVP model”, said the Gujarat chief minister.
