"PM Modi can only give speeches...like a balloon which only bounces. The Gujarat model has failed. Congress was victorious in the (local) elections there," Rahul Gandhi said addressing a meeting of block and district level party leaders here, in the run-up to the 2016 Assam Assembly election.
    
"It is because Narendra Modi's model has failed that a big agitation has been launched by a community (Patels) in Gujarat," he asserted. "India thought 'acche din' (good days) will come as promised by PM Modi before the elections, but after losing the Bihar poll, he does not mention a word about it," Rahul Gandhi observed.
    
During his poll campaign in Bihar, PM Modi had called Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar 'bewakuf' (foolish), while Rahul reminded his audience and wondered 'are we bewakufs too?'
    
Rahul Gandhi also accused PM Modi of removing the Special Category State status accorded by the  Central government to Assam, whereby 90 percent of Central funds were given as grants and rest 10 percent state funds.
