Amid continuing row over Rafael deal, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Saturday that Congress could only make fun of the term 'development' other than that they could do nothing.

The minister's scathing remark comes hours after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi single-handedly finalised the fighter jets deal without consulting anyone, even the former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar.

"During electioneering, Congress has changed its strategies and plans on multiple occasions. The 'anti-development' Congress has always made fun of the term 'development' and have done nothing else and this is how they (Congress) think," Jaitley said while addressing a press conference here.

While talking about poll-bound Gujarat state, he said, "Gujarat is one of the important states in the country and state's track record concerning education, infrastructure development and urban development have increased since we have come to power," he said.

Further lashing out at the Congress, Jaitley said the grand old party was dividing the society to win this election.

"Congress, which has already suffered due to anarchy, is trying its best to divide the society to win this election," he said.

The election to the 182-Gujarat Legislative Assembly will be held on December 9 and December 14, and counting of votes will be held on December 18.
