No one has the right to raise fingers at EC: PM Modi hits out at opposition 22.10.2017 DNA: Money
— ANI (@ANI) October 22, 2017 It roughly translates to  PM Modi saying," Some people have problem with me coming to Vadodara in Diwali. They can't take me on, hence they are putting pressure on Election Commission". Modi went on to say that they have no right to raise fingers at the EC.  Congress has attacked EC for not announcing the dates for Gujarat polls with even P Chidambaram saying the polling body has given the task of announcing the date to PM. DMK too have criticised EC for not announcing the dates. The model code of conduct will come in place as soon as the poll dates are announced.  While launching his "dream project", Modi blamed the previous UPA government for delaying the venture by creating hurdles in the name of environment. Modi, who is visiting the state for the third time this month, also took the first trip in the ferry from Ghogha to Dahej with 100 visually-impaired children from Bhavnagar. "This is the first of its kind project not only in India, but also in South-East Asia," Modi ...

Modi blames UPA for delay in Guj ferry project; Cong says PM in 'panic mode' 22.10.2017
New Delhi: Narendra Modi was in "panic mode" ahead of the Assembly elections in Gujarat, retaliated the Congress after the Prime Minister accused the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government of stalling the development in Gujarat in 2012. "I think the prime minister is in panic mode. He is clearly confused; on one hand, he said the Congress interfered in his efforts to uplift Gujarat, and on the other hand, he presents the Gujarat Model. He should decide whether Gujarat is developed or not," Congress leader Sushmita Dev told ANI. She also alleged that Modi's 'Gujarat Model' has been presented as a lie to the public, adding that the people of Gujarat would respond to this "fairytale". Defending this stance, Congress leader Ripun Bora termed Modi as a "big liar", and questioned his silence on the matter in the past three years. "All that's being said and done is only because elections are coming up in Gujarat," he claimed. Earlier, Modi ...

Andhra Pradesh: Two years after PM Modi laid foundation stone for capital, not a single brick has been laid 22.10.2017 DNA: Top News
Although Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone for Andhra Pradesh's new capital city Amaravati exactly two years ago, not a single brick has been laid for the development of the capital so far. Over the last three years, timelines had been set and reset for the capital, but the construction process has not even crossed the designing stage. The Chief Minister's Office Real-time Executive dashboard says, till date, 2,27,100 people have donated 56,66,596 'bricks' (Rs 10 per brick) for building the capital city. It was on October 25, 2014, that the Chandrababu Naidu government had announced that the new capital city would be constructed within five years, but three years have since elapsed with only the 'temporary' structures of the Secretariat and Legislature to show. On October 9 last year, Naidu had written an open letter to the people of the state promising to give a "definite shape" to Amaravati "by Vijaya Dasami next year" (that fell on September 30 this year). However, not even ...

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj arrived here today on a two-day visit to attend a joint consultative committee meeting to review the bilateral ties and discuss ways to further strengthen the relationship.

UPA govt in 2012 stalled industries, growth in Gujarat: Modi on his stint as CM 22.10.2017
Bhavnagar: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that he had to face the hostility of the Centre when he was the chief minister of Gujarat in 2012. After launching the RO-RO ferry service in the poll-bound Gujarat, the prime minister alleged that the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government even made efforts to stall industries and growth in the state. "When I was serving as the chief minister of Gujarat in 2012, I faced hostility from the then Central Government. Efforts were made to stall industries and the state's growth. Over the last three years, we have changed that and given importance to the development of Gujarat," he said, while addressing a gathering here. Praising the long coastline of the state, the prime minister said the government should harness opportunities arising due to it and make efforts to develop the coastal infrastructure. Highlighting the importance of the ferry service, Modi asserted that the project was a first of sorts and was like a ...
