New Delhi [India], October 3 (ANI): The Indian National Congress on Tuesday attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) presdent, Amit Shah, saying that they don't need glasses to see the lack of development in Gujarat.

Speaking to ANI, Congress leader Salman Khurshid said, "I don't know how many glasses Amit Shah is going to take off from the people of this country. We don't need glasses to see that there is no development. He has a blindfold and he can't see the reality."

He went on to suggest that the BJP president uses these 'Jumlas' to make political points and that the people can see through it now.

"Periodically he picks on these jumlas to continue making these political points. People can see through this now and now the blindfolds will be removed by the people themselves," he said.

Congress leader Sandeep Dixit lashed out at the BJP president, expressing surprise at the nature of his comments.

"I am surprised that the president of a party is of this level today. You can't expect anything else from Amit Shah. We know what kind of a person he is," he said.

He also said that Shah needs to remove the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and the 'chaddi' chashma to see the 60 years of development in the country.

Earlier on Sunday, Shah launched a fresh salvo on Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi saying that the latter needs to wear Gujarati spectacles to see the development of Gujarat and not the one made in Italy. (ANI)
