Hingoli (Rajasthan): Vajpayee-Advani partnership has been replaced by Modi-Adani one, Rahul Gandhi said today, taking a jibe at Gujarat Chief Minister and his alleged favours to the Adani group.
Addressing a rally here, he said Modi had given land equal to the size of Aurangabad in Maharashtra to Adani just for Rs 300 crore at the rate of Re one per square metre.
"Today there is 'raj' (rule) of Adaniji (in Gujarat). Earlier, there used to be (Atal Bihari) Vajpayeeji-(L K) Advaniji partnership. Now there is (Narendra) Modiji and (Gautam) Adaniji partnership. And that is a 'toffee model'," the Congress Vice President said, attacking the Gujarat Chief Minister.
"Earlier there used to be Advaniji. If you remove 'v' from Advani, it will become Adani," he said.
Explaining why he was calling Gujarat's model as 'toffee model', Rahul said, "In Gujarat, Adaniji is given land at the rate of Re one per square metre. For Re one, you get a toffee. This is why I say it is not Gujarat model but 'toffee model' of development."
