"Because of a stable government, our state has seen exceptional development. If there was a government of 'ayaram-gayaram' in the state, you wouldn't have such development," he said.
He also appealed them on the poll plank of 'experience'.
"You know me for my work record of the past 12 years. You know my advantages and my faults. You have to decide whom you want to hand over the state to whom you know for the past 12 years, or to those whom you barely know," he said.
Modi criticised the Congress which had blamed him for incurring high debt during the last decade of BJP rule. "The Congress is spreading blatant lies about the Gujarat government's debt," he alleged.
"Because of the government of Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, our country is under a burden of Rs 40 lakh crore of debt. When the BJP-Shiv Sena ruled Maharashtra, the debt was Rs 44,000 crore, but during the past ten years of Congress rule, that state is under a debt of Rs 2.25 lakh crore," he said.
