BJP leader L.K. Advani has lauded Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for the development work he has undertaken in the State.

Close on the heels of BJP leader Sushma Swaraj describing Narendra Modi “fit” for the Prime Minister’s post, the Gujarat Chief Minister came in for praise from L. K. Advani who said he is a “role model” of development and asked other States to imitate him.

“Modi is undertaking great development work in Gujarat. He is a role model for Chief Ministers of other States on how to rule, govern and take care of even the poorest,” he said addressing election rallies at Kalol and Mansa in Gandhinagar district in the run-up to the Gujarat Assembly polls on December 13 and 17.

Lauding Modi for introducing schemes for tribals and fishermen, Advani had said on Sunday, “Prices have risen during the Congress regime while the Union Government is facing corruption charges. Scam after scam is being unravelled.”

Advani’s praise of Modi comes days after Swaraj and BJP leader Gopinath Munde described him “fit” for the Prime Minister’s post.

“Narendra Modi is capable of becoming the prime minister of the country... he is fit for it,” Swaraj had said on Saturday.

Taking a dig at Swaraj for her statment on Modi, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh had said she must first make clear if Advani also agrees with her.

“It is alright if Sushma feels that Modi is good for the Prime Minister’s job, but she must first tell if Advani also agrees with her on this,” Digvijay had said in Katni in Madhya Pradesh.
