Rahul, however, refused to comment on his elevation as the party president, NDTV reported.

The remark drew immediate condemnation from the BJP with Union Minister Smriti Irani terming it as "indecent".

The Congress is now conducting organisational polls, including for the post of president.

"Though the people here are well aware of the contribution of Rahul Gandhi in the development of the area, we can not sit idle and see someone else hijack it and lay false claims over it", Misra said.

The BJP has now chose to deploy leaders from Uttar Pradesh for its campaign in Gujarat.

Agarwal said that the all the leaders claimed that with Sonia Gandhi finding it hard to contribute enough time to the organisation, it was the right time to elevate Rahul Gandhi to the top post of Congress.

Speaking about the projects launched by the BJP leaders on Tuesday, Misra said these were not in consonance with the status of the positions they hold. A large number of people from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Odisha migrate to Gujarat looking for employment in textiles, automobiles and other manufacturing sector. Rahul, who was accompanying his mother, on the other hand, refused to answer the question head on and instead referred to the controversy surrounding the businesses of Jay Shah, Bharatiya Janata Party chief Amit Shah's son.

"We have completed three years in power and there is not even a single charge of corruption against us".

"The UPA government did everything to ensure that Sardar Sarovar Dam did not get completion or objections were raised unnecessarily", he said.

During his October 5 trip to Amethi, Gandhi had accused the BJP government of trying to claim credit for works done by the previous Congress-led UPA government in his constituency by inaugurating them afresh.
