Asserting that he thought serious issues would be discussed in this election, Modi said the galaxy of BJP leaders including Lal Krishna Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Yashwant Sinha, Arun Jaitley and Murli Manohar Joshi were speaking on various subjects.

"But on the other side, there is a player whose mind doesn't move away from childishness. Such an important election about the country's future but for ten days, a word that gripped him was 'balloon'. For ten days he kept repeating it. However, children don't stick to a toy for too long and now he has caught the word 'toffee',” Modi said.

"Now you tell me what to do. I am not of an age where I can play with balloons," Modi said in an apparent attack on Rahul who on Monday dubbed the Gujarat model of development as 'toffee' model contending that land was given to few industrialists at throwaway prices.

He said it was for the people to decide whether or not they wanted those who play with ‘balloons’ and crave for ‘toffees’.
