He made the remarks at a meeting of BJP workers targeting the Congress vice president who has been attacking the Modi government and questioning its handling of the economy.

Shah said the Modi government has completed three year and the BJP has been giving account of its performance.

"Now Rahul Gandhi should give an account of the works of his three generations," he said.

The BJP chief did not elaborate but was clearly referring to the governments of Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.

Addressing a press conference separately, Shah credited the Modi government with starting an era of "politics o performance" in the country.

"If you compare how things were when we took over in 2011 and how they are at present, you will find a big difference, he said.

He said the UPA government was mired in scams worth Rs 1 lakh crore and suffered from "policy paralysis" while the BJP government has been able to give a "transparent an performance-oriented" government, which is also decisive.

"A major change is evident all over the country today an the credit goes to Prime Minister Narendra Modi under whose leadership historic decisions like demonetisation, crackdown on benami property, a uniform tax regime under GST were taken. They put an end to a parallel economy run by black money," the BJP chief claimed.

"Economic reforms and strategic decisions like th surgical strikes (on terror camps across the Line of Contro (LoC) in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir) have helped build India' image abroad as a strong-willed nation," he said.

"Today we have been able to evolve a brand India an countries all over the world want better relations with us," Shah said.
