Making his first appearance in the Gujarat assembly election campaign, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday unleashed an attack on Chief Minister Narendra Modi calling him a "marketeer" who does false propaganda claiming progress in the state.

"People's voice is not heard in Gujarat. The government of Gujarat and the Chief Minister do not want to listen to you. He wants to hear only his own voice. He has his dream and he thinks only about his own dream. A true leader makes people's dream his own dream," he said addressing a rally here, the town where Tata Motors relocated from Singur to make low-cost Nano car.

The Congress General Secretary claimed that a false propaganda that Gujarat was making all round progress has been launched but contrary to it there is rampant corruption in the state, unemployment is very high and there is all round failure.

"The marketeer says Gujarat is shining. But tell me how many hours people get water? People get water for 25 minutes in every three days. But marketeer says Gujarat is shining. There are 10 lakh unemployed youth in Gujarat. But marketer says Gujarat is shining," he said.

Rahul said voice of poor and down-trodden is suppressed in Gujarat as the leader does not want to hear common people's grievances.

"Gandhiji and Nehruji always wanted to hear people's voice. They were true leaders," he said.

The Congress leader claimed that even opposition's voice is curbed in Gujarat as the assembly sits for just 25 days in a year and very often opposition leaders are thrown out of the House.

Rahul said there is no Lokayukta in Gujarat and 14,000 RTI applications were pending as government does not want to let any information come out as it would expose its true affairs.
