    Inaugurating a state level agriculture festival at Manavadar in Junagadh district, Chief Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday took a dig at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for a ‘slow growth rate’ in the sector despite a decade of good monsoon.

    “He (Manmohan Singh) is an economist. The entire country has recorded good monsoon for a decade now. Still India is struggling with a low agricultural growth rate of 3 per cent. Against this, Gujarat has recorded a growth of 11 per cent,” he said.

    “We have promoted agriculture through awareness and schemes at such festivals,” Modi added.

    He went on to challenge the “Delhi Sultanat” to compete with Gujarat in agriculture. “The Centre should get into a healthy competition with Gujarat. The central government should at least try to reach half of the growth that Gujarat has achieved.”

    The event came hours before his bete noire and predecessor Keshubhai Patel attended mass marriage ceremonies of the Leuva Patel community at Veraval, Keshod and Datrana in Junagadh district.

    Good we need such healthy rivalry to accelerate growth in our country. The best practices of Gujarat should be adopted by other states. The central leadership should remove it's Modi blinkers and work for the country.
