He challenged the Indian National Congress party to make its stand clear on National Register of Citizens (NRC) for Assam and slammed INC President Rahul Gandhi for his lack of knowledge on the issues he speaks at” Charbhuja temple .Using the NRC issue as a pitch to corner the Congress, Shah called on people to question the Congress president Rahul Gandhi as to why he wants “Bangladeshi intruders” in the country. “Rahul Baba will come here later this month; you must ask him why he wants to keep Bangladesh intruders in the country. The Congress wants them to stay here because they are its vote bank,” he said.Almost 40 lakh people, mostly Muslims, have been excluded from the NRC .Amit Shah said the INC wants to save them for sake of their votes. The BJP president was also critical of the Congress President for making fun of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and demeaning him. Shah rapped the Congress chief for asking what the Modi government had done in four years. Instead, Shah said that the people of India have been demanding answers from the INC on its achievements for four decades. “Rahul baba humse chaar saal ka kya hisaab maangte ho? Desh ki janta aapse se chaar peedhi ka hisaab maang rahi hai,” Shah said. Taking a dig at Rahul’s Italian roots, he said, “Rahul Baba, I do not know Italian otherwise I would have told you how much we have done for the people.”The BJP president said that Modi government started 116 schemes for poor people and the Raje government has executed these schemes on the ground. He added that only a BJP chief minister can have the courage to go on a yatra to give people a report card of the government’s performance. He said Congress did nothing when it was in power for five decades. It was Vasundhara Raje who brought the state out of ‘BIMARU’ category.
