New Delhi: As part of its campaign material in Gujarat, the Congress party has come out with a CD in which it seeks to reach out people with a subtle message - they are being taken for a ride by the BJP government in the name of development.

Titled Gandhi Navu Gujarat (Mahatma Gandhi’s Gujarat), the CD has three songs i.e. uncho uthavo haath (raise your hands), bholu Gujarat (innocent Gujarat) and ma gurjari no haath (mother Gujarat).

While the first song features the party’s symbol hand, the second tries to corner the BJP on governance and development issues, besides growing unemployment in the state.

The third song is based on a poem by famous Gujrati poet Narmad, who had penned it even before the Congress came into existence.

Congress has also promise of providing 100 sq yard of plots to rural poor and middle class women. The scheme has received a huge response till date, with the party claiming of receiving 16.42 lakh forms. The party has opened facilities to collect the forms for this scheme at 225 taluka centres of the state from Monday.

The state assembly polls are scheduled to be held on December 13 and 17. Counting of votes is slated for December 20.
