Taking a jibe at BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh Saturday said "he's not a superman or a magician" to solve all the problems.

"Modi is not a superman or a magician who is claiming to solve all the problems in the blink of an eye," the chief minister said at an election rally in Sunni in Shimla district.

He said a wave was being created in favour of the Bharatiya Janata party leader through the media to misguide the people but the reality was far from this.

"The state BJP leaders and Modi are raking up the Gujarat model of development but there are many other states which are far more developed and self-reliant than Gujarat, and Himachal Pradesh is one of them," Virbhadra Singh said while campaigning for Mohan Lal Bragta, the Congress candidate for Shimla (reserved) seat.

He said if a strong and secular government is formed at the centre, it would pave the way for the development of all states equally.

Modi has failed to discharge his responsibility in an effective manner and during his chief ministership, Gujarat witnessed large-scale riots, he said.

"He is not fit to become the prime minister."

Himachal Pradesh goes to the polls for the state's four Lok Sabha seats May 7.
