MEERUT -- Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday said that the Central Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is fighting terrorism and at the same time working for India's economy.

Addressing the media here, Prasad said the government is talking about development and other parties are trying to stop them by making best possible coalition.

"To stop us they are desperate to make any alliance. Now, Rahul Gandhi is dying to form an alliance with Samajwadi Party. Nitish Kumar says that everyone should come together against BJP," he added.

Further escalating his attack on Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, Prasad said, "Some people think before they speak, some speak and then they think and some don't think either before or after they speak and Rahul Gandhi is one of them".
