Talking about the liberalisation reforms of the 1990s, Jaitley said that the reforms "were taken under compulsion", he added that the reforms under the Modi government are taken "by conviction".

The finance minister's barbed remarks were in response to Congress leader Kapil Sibal's charge that Prime Minister Narendra Modi can no longer be called a Hindu as he had completely embraced fundamentalist ideology.

"Those who have no internal democracy can't work for people".

The PM also attacked Congress citing Sonia Gandhi's political secretary Ahmed Patel's election to the Rajya Sabha. Media had to ask Indiraji (late prime minister Indira Gandhi) before publishing something. "But nation wants to know when will you reply to the questions raised by senior BJP leaders Arun Shourie, Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha", said Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala on Twitter.

Addressing an election rally in Bharuch, Modi said, "Bharuch and Kutch are districts with significant Muslim populations".

"A few days back in Navsari, I had said there are three polls whose results are certain-the Uttar Pradesh local polls, Gujarat polls where I said BJP will win and the INC (Indian National Congress) president election where one family will win".

"BJP has always been seen as a pro-Hindutva party and if someone wants to mimic us, I do not have any complaint". That same leader is topmost Congress leader but what did he do for Bharuch? He said that before the BJP came into power in Gujarat, "social polarisation" was rampant in the state. Modi's rallies are centred on places where the BJP needs an extra push.
