Siddharth Patel dares Modi to arrest Congress leaders

VADODARA Siddharth Patel, former state Congress chief, on Wednesday dared Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to arrest the Congress leaders for announcing housing schemes for women ahead of the Assembly election.
Modi had earlier said that Congress was misleading the people, and it was a crime.
"If it is so, what prevents Modi from arresting us?" asked Patel.
The Congress leader said that "overwhelming response" to the scheme had had Modi worried. Though Congress has promised to provide houses to women after coming to power, party's state unit haddistributed32lakhapplication forms so far, according to Patel.
    Patel also said that Congress government would construct 15 lakh houses for the rural women. The beneficiaries would repay the cost of Rs one lakh over fifteen years. PTI
