Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday hit back at Congress President Sonia Gandhi saying it was Congress that does 'zaher ke kheti' (grow hatred), and not the BJP.

Referring to BJP, the UPA Chairperson had some days ago said that some people do 'zaher ki kheti'.

Without naming Gandhi, Modi said, "They delivered a line that some people do 'zaher ki kheti'....We sold just tea, but you have sold the entire country. You made the country a victim of vote-bank politics, and only promoted hatred, communal difference and poverty."

Modi was addressing 'Vikas Jyoti Yatra' organised by BJP in Limbayat area of the city last evening.

"I would like to tell you today who spreads poison of division and who spreads love of togetherness," he said.

The Gujarat Chief Minister said when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was Prime Minister, he divided three states -- Chhattisgarh from Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand from Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand from Bihar.

"When the states were divided all of them were distributing sweets. But look at the situation in Andhra Pradesh. For a few votes you have made people of Seemandhra unhappy and have turned them against people of Telangana, and people from Telangana are now against the people of Seemandhra," Modi said.

"This is called 'zaher ki kheti' (cultivating hatred), while what we did under Vajpayee is 'pyar ki kheti' (growing love)," Modi said.
