"Narendra Modi has been repeating 'Gujarat Model' for the past one-and-a-half years. Nobody knows what is 'Gujarat Model'. We also don't get to see Congress' 'Bharat Nirman' anywhere. There has been no 'Bharat Nirman' for the past 10 years," Yadav said.

It was the Samajwadi Party which cares for the common man, he said during a rally in Kavinagar Ramleela Ground.

Yadav also slammed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Finance Minister P Chidambaram for not contesting the Lok Sabha elections.

"PM, who is claiming to have done 'Bharat Nirman', is not contesting elections. Even, his Finance Minister, who is responsible for the inflation, is also not contesting," he said, adding BJP and Congress have invested crore of rupees to hire companies for publicity to "fool" the people.

He said his party, which has been raising issues facing the common man for several years, is the ‘people's party’.

Later addressing a rally at Jahangirabad town in Bulandshahr, Yadav alleged that the 'Gujarat Model' is a model of communal hatred and not that of development as has been claimed by Modi.

Yadav promised to set up a medical college and a university at Noida. He also said that soon all towns in the state would be provided 24-hour electricity supply and in villages for 18 hours.
