Rahul Gandhi today said the "balloon" of Gujarat model of development will burst the same way as 'India Shining' did in 2004.

Addressing a campaign rally at Bhimrao Stadium here, the Congress vice president said 'India Shining' was a marketing strategy, and in the same way, the Gujarat model has nothing to do with the reality.

"The balloon of Gujarat model would burst in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections," he said.

The BJP's manifesto is almost a copy of the Congress manifesto, Gandhi claimed.

He also said that his party's manifesto was drafted only after interacting with various sections of the society.

BJP talked a lot about corruption, but it could not see the problem existing in Madhya Pradesh, or even (in accepting) somebody like (former Karnataka Chief Minister) Yeddyurappa, he said.
