Rahul Gandhi To Campaign In Karnataka For 3 Days From February 24

Rahul Gandhi To Campaign In Karnataka For 3 Days From February 24

Earlier in the day, Rahul Gandhi attacked Modi over his silence on the PNB bank fraud and the Rafale deal, saying sarcastically that he looked forward to his "sermon" on the issues in his "Mann ki Baat" programme.

The PNB scam allegedly by diamond czar Nirav Modi is the biggest ever banking scam in the country. He was speaking to reporters during a roadshow in poll-bound Meghalaya.

"By bringing that "baccha" (Rahul Gandhi) in Karnataka, we now know that we will win more than 150 seats here", Yeddyurappa said at a BJP social media conclave.

Rahul's tweet reads, "Modi Ji, last month you ignored my suggestions for your Mann Ki Baat monologue".

"Modi speaks for two hours advising students how to fare well in exams; however, he doesn't spare 2 minutes to talk about the Rs.220000 crore scam involving public sector Punjab National Bank. Nirav Modi's 22,000 Crore Loot and Scoot and 58,000 Crore RAFALE scam (sic)".

The prime minister wants to rule the entire country at any cost but can not explain how Nirav Modi took Rs 22,000 crore and escaped to England, he added.

A war of words and verbal attack has been going on between Congress and BJP in the view of upcoming assembly elections in the state.

BJP retaliates, says Congress has a long history of corruption Reacting to Rahul Gandhi's "instrument of corruption" jibe at PM Narendra Modi, BJP on Wednesday mocked at the Congress president terming him successor of a party which has a long history of corruption right from the "jeep scandal" of 1948.

"People of Meghalaya have given a resounding NO to the attempts by the BJP and show that they can not be bought", said Rahul to applause from the crowds. "The Prime Minister had told the nation he would be a watchman for the people of the country and yet he couldn't prevent the theft of their hard earned money".

Lauding the work of Chief Minister Mukul Sangma, the Congress president said, "He (Sangma) ushered in an era of unprecedented growth and prosperity and by being one of the most hardworking chief ministers in the country, one can see tremendous development here".

The Congress chief also described the National Peoples Party (NPP) led by Conrad Sangma as "B" team of BJP. "We are all proud of you", he added. He is on a two-day visit to the state.
