Rahul Gandhi questions Modi on 'criminal' BJP candidates in Karnakata polls

  • Riding a cycle Rahul Gandhi compares PM Modi to a 'mobile phone without work mode'

Sources close to the Chief Minister say he has chose to stretch every sinew to decimate the JD (S) in the coming polls and win a larger number of seats in the Old Mysuru region to offset the possible losses in North Karnataka where the BJP has regained most of its lost ground with the return of its state chief, B. S. Yeddyurappa, who had quit the party to float a regional outfit, the KJP, ahead of the Assembly elections in 2013, and the wealthy Reddy brothers.

Having lost elections in several states where it previously held power, the Congress was desperate to win Karnataka, Modi said. The curtains will be down for their acting with the people's anti-climax reply on May 12, he said.

Addressing his second rally in Gadag, Prime Minister exuded confidence that people of Karnataka will defeat the Congress that will make the grand-old national party a regional one called PPP Congress - Punjab, Puducherry and Parivar Congress. "Congress should have the courage to speak out the truth to people", said the PM. "We have focused on the welfare of farmers, women, youths and backward sections", said the Bharatiya Janata Party's state unit head and chief ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa.

Hitting out at Gandhi, Shah said, "I heard the statement of Rahul baba that his party is going to form the government in Madhya Pradesh". The video even ends by saying the PM could use a paper for answers referring to the war of words between the BJP and the Congress over speaking from notes.

The results will be declared on May 15.

"If anyone is protecting the Congress, it is the JD (S)".

"Winning Karnataka elections is very important to us, as it is our doorway to the south of India", Shah said at the day-long "Karnataka Now Conclave 2018", organised here by Times Now news channel. He said for years, Congress spoke of poverty over and over again but is mum about it ever since the son of a poor mother became the Prime Minister.

He did not also name Chhindwara and Guna Lok Sabha seats - won by former Union ministers Kamal Nath and Scindia respectively, while asking party workers to ensure that the BJP wins all the Assembly segments in these two seats.

Taking a jibe at the Congress party, he said that whenever they lose a state election they tend to blame the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM). He doesn't know he is the Prime Minister of India, not (of) the RSS or the BJP.
