Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Sunday during the launch of electoral campaign ‘Vijay Sankalp Sammelan’ made a scathing attack on the Congress party and said if Congress wins the Lok Sabha elections, there will be Diwali-like celebrations in Pakistan, while the neighboring country will slip into “matam (mourning)” if Narendra Modi-led BJP comes back to power.

"The language which is used by Pakistan, that same language is used by the Congress leaders. They are insulting the Army, they are breaking the momentum of the citizens. Air Strike done by the government and press conference done by Army chiefs are being questioned. Whom are they supporting? Today it seems like Congress party is Pakistan's party," Rupani said while addressing a rally here.

"Though it is not going to happen, if Congress wins May 23, then Diwali will be celebrated in Pakistan. If on May 23 Prime Minister Narendra Modi gets a clear majority, then there will be mourning in Pakistan," he said and added that Pakistanis fear Prime Minister Modi.

The chief minister accused the Opposition of insulting the armed forces. "Who are you trying to support by negating the words spoken by the heads of the armed forces (after the Balakot airstrike)?" he asked.

Describing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah as "sons of Gujarat" who were working to make India stand tall among the league of nations, Rupani said disparate Opposition parties were uniting only with the aim of defeating PM Modi.

"When Narendrabhai is moving in the direction of making India a ''Ram Rajya'', the Opposition parties have come together. The Congress, communists, terrorists, naxals, corrupts, Mamata, Mayawati, Akhilesh, Chandrababu... all selfish people have come together (against him)," he said.

Terming the upcoming Lok Sabha elections as a dharma yudhha, Rupani said that it will decide the future of India.
