The competition is between Rahul who spends his holidays abroad and Modi who celebrates Diwali with soldiers: Amit Shah

Karakat. Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Sunday that the contest in this Lok Sabha election is between Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, who goes for a foreign holiday as soon as the heat increases, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who celebrates Diwali with the soldiers deployed on the border. Addressing an election rally in favour of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) candidate and former Union Minister Upendra Kushwaha from Karakat parliamentary constituency of Bihar, Shah said, “Yesterday the six phases of elections ended. I have the report of the fifth phase. Modi ji has already won 310 seats in five phases. This sixth and seventh phase is to cross the 400-seat mark.”

He said that unlike Rahul Gandhi who was born with a “silver spoon”, Modi who comes from a “very backward family” has worked very hard to reach the top post and at one point of time he even had to sell tea to make ends meet. Shah said, “This contest is between Rahul Gandhi who goes abroad for a holiday as soon as the summer heat increases and Narendra Modi who eats sweets with the soldiers deployed for the security of the border without taking a holiday on Diwali for 23 years.”

Accusing the Congress of being “afraid of Pakistan’s nuclear bombs”, the former BJP president said his government, which abrogated Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, would keep Pakistan-occupied Kashmir which “was ours, is ours and will remain ours”. Shah criticised parties opposing the BJP for providing reservation “to Muslims” by cutting the share of Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST) and Other Backward Classes (OBC) in states ruled by them, saying Modi has vowed to end it.

He also accused the opposition parties of opposing the construction of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. NDA candidate Upendra Kushwaha is pitted against the CPI (ML) candidate in Karakat. Shah reminded people of the Naxal violence that kept Bihar in the news a few decades ago and warned that the victory of the Left party could lead to a repeat of such incidents.
