Shah said, “The people of Gujarat have also seen days, especially between 1985 and 1995 (under non-BJP governments), when communal riots were common.

Shah said that the BJP governments have improved this situation, due to which now no one dares to create disturbances.
The Gandhinagar MP said, ‘All Latif and Ijju Shaikh (two criminals from Gujarat) were already finished. Today, the youth of 20 years do not even know what a curfew is like. We ended the politics of appeasement and established the rule of law in Gujarat. Ghatlodia assembly constituency is a part of Gandhinagar Lok Sabha constituency.

Shah said that the Congress used to make fun of the BJP and its workers for supporting the construction of the Ram temple. He alleged that the party created legal hurdles to delay the construction of the temple. He said, ‘Earlier the Congress used to taunt us as to when the temple would be built. Now the temple is getting ready for inauguration in January 2024, so Rahul Baba can visit the temple. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has resolved this 550-year-old dispute peacefully.
