Ahead of Gujarat polls, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi is touring the state as part of his election campaign.
In a speech on Sunday, he addressed several issues ranging from why he would never disrespect the Prime Minister's Office, to his contribution in the recent revision of GST (goods and services tax) rates, and who handles his Twitter account.

Gandhi said the Congress might criticize Narendra Modi and spot his failures, but it would never disrespect the Prime Minister's Office.
Taking a dig at him, he said the Congress is unlike Modi, who, when he was in opposition, used to disrespect the then PM Manmohan Singh.
"No matter what Modi says about us we'll not go beyond certain point," Gandhi said.
Talking of development in the state, Gandhi alleged Gujarat's path to progress has gone askew, saying, "Gujarat mein vikas pagal ho gaya hai." He said the Congress isn't after revenge but change.
He also talked about his Twitter handle. He said a team of three-four people manage his account and tweet regular stuff on his behalf. His political tweets, however, are his own.
On Saturday, Gandhi said the GST Council revised tax rates on 178 items of daily use because of mounting pressure from the Congress and the people.
Calling GST "Gabbar Singh Tax," he said if the Bharatiya Janata Party failed to bring in the necessary changes and roll out "the real GST," the Congress would do it after coming to power.
