PARDI: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said the party was going to win the upcoming Gujarat assembly elections because it has the truth on its side.

"This is a fight between truth and falsehood. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has the police, the Army as well as the government in Gujarat, Centre, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Goa and many other states. However, despite of all this, the Congress is going to win the Gujarat elections because we have truth on our side," Rahul, while delivering a speech in the Pardi district, reiterated his yesterday's statement.

Gandhi asserted that Gujarat's truth comprised of various problems, while the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) truth was only about some rich industrialists. 

"Gujarat's truth is youth unemployment, farmers' helplessness, expensive private education, expensive medical care, corruption in every field, land stealing, bullets on Patidar, sticks on Dalits in Una, and hunger of Adivasis. However, the BJP's truth is their relation with five to ten high-profile industrialists who use money, electricity, water, and land of the Gujarat public," he said.

Advancing on his taunt about the Nano project of the Modi Government, Rahul said he had been searching for the car, but could not find one on Gujarat roads.

"The BJP's truth is the amount of Rs. 33,000 crore, given to Tata for Nano cars. I haven't seen a single Nano in the past 10-15 days. I've been looking for one, but couldn't find it. The Congress had provided employement to crores of people in the same amount of money through MNREGA," Gandhi stressed.

The assembly elections in Gujarat are scheduled in two phases - December 9 and December 14. Results will be declared on December 18.
