Elections 2014: Rahul Gandhi questions BJP's plan on development in states

"The opposition talks about the Gujarat model everywhere. What has it got to do with Manipur or Uttar Pradesh or Meghalaya? The only model that should work in Manipur is the Manipur model, not the Gujarat model," Gandhi told a massive public rally here.

He said the Congress party respected everybody, irrespective of their religion or the place they came from.

"We don't want to impose anything on Manipur. We are proud of the language and culture of Manipur as we are proud of all others," Gandhi said, according to a release here.

"India is garden of flowers; big, small, different colours. We respect each of these flowers. Our opposition wants only one kind," Gandhi said.

"Hospitals with 100 beds have been built in five districts, and sports complexes were being built in every district of the state, home to Olympian boxer Mary Kom," he added.
