New Delhi: Gujarat Parivartan Party (GPP) founder and former Gujarat Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel on Tuesday taunted Narendra Modi saying that he is stronger even at the age of 84 than the Chief Minister who is just 62 years old.

“At 84, I travel by road 600 kms and hold six meetings in a day, and I am still strong. Narendra Modi, who is just 62, attends four meetings by chopper and gets tired. So who is stronger?” he said.

Blaming Modi behind Navjyot Sidhu’s ‘traitor remark’, Keshubhai said, “He (Narendra Modi) sent Sidhu to Visavadar and provoked him to call me a traitor. Am I a traitor? It has been six days. So far, Modi has not stopped Sidhu, not rapped him, what does it mean? Modi is behind it.”

Addressing a public rally in Visavadar Assembly constituency in Junagadh district recently, the former cricketer and BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu had termed Keshubhai as an "anti national" leader.

The former Chief Minister also promised free power to farmers in rural areas, and first 100 units of power will be free to people living in cities, if voted to power.

Assembly elections in Gujarat will be held in two phases on December 13 and 17. Counting of votes is slated for December 20.
