NEW DELHI: Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani on Saturday took a dig at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for “copying” the state’s initiatives and selling them as his own ideas.
The Congress leader had earlier lauded the efforts of the Himachal Pradesh government in conducting a survey to select ‘one district, one product’, saying “he had suggested this sometime back”.
Reacting to his post, Rupani took to Twitter and said, “Rahul ji, copying Gujarat’s initiatives and selling them as your ideas does not show your smartness. I don’t expect you to know details of anything, but your script-writers should know better!”
Taking a jibe at Rahul Gandhi, Rupani further said, “How about a ‘One defeat, One reinvention’ policy for you?”
He also attached a screenshot of former Gujarat CM Anandiben Patel’s Twitter post where she had announced a similar concept of ‘One village, one product’ initiative in 2016.

In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi had tagged a report that stated the Himachal industries department is conducting a baseline survey in all districts to select ‘one district, one product’ for centrally-sponsored Micro and Small Enterprises Cluster Development Programme.
“This is a good idea. I had suggested it some time back. Its implementation will need a complete change of mindset,” he said on Twitter.
