Blessings of mothers and sisters my shield: Narendra Modi

Narendra Modi

Hitting back at the Congress for targeting the Gujarat government on the alleged incident of surveillance mounted by the police on a woman in that state, Narendra Modi on Monday dared the party to confront him on development, rather than resorting to "lies" and "making false allegations".

Addressing a rally in Chhattarpur, the first of his four rallies in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh, the Gujarat chief minister and BJP prime ministerial candidate said he had the blessings of the mothers and sisters of India, which would protect him against all threats.

The Congress has demanded a probe by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court to fix accountability for the surveillance purportedly ordered by the then Gujarat minister of state for home Amit Shah, apparently on the instructions of "saheb".
