PM Narendra Modi equates 'Congress' 'C' with Corruption's 'C'


While addressing a public rally in Kalgi ahead of the impending Karnataka Assembly Elections, Mr Gandhi said, "When the Congress comes to power in 2019, we will waive the loans of farmers within 10 days of coming to power".

Modi also alleged during the rally on Saturday that the Congress, for years, spoke about poverty eradication only to garner votes, while neglecting farmers and the poor.

He added, "Why are you hiding this?"

Continuing his tirade against the opposition party, Shah said that the BJP stood for farmers and the poor, while the Congress was synonymous with "corporate interests". "Congress and JD (S) have a secret understanding.An understanding behind the curtains", Modi said.

Calling BJP's chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa a "farmer leader", Modi said his vast experience and commitment to the farming community will strengthen the Centre's mission to give a fresh impetus to agriculture.

"You can refer to a paper for answers", he taunted, a response to PM Modi challenging him to speak for 15 minutes on achievements of the Karnataka government without the help of notes.

Modi sought to clear the air about the alleged alliance with the JD (S) which has been in the news for long now. "After losing the Karnataka elections, the Congress will become PPP Congress - Punjab, Puducherry and Parivar Congress", he added.

Deve Gowda, on his part, had responded to the prime minister's praise with warmth, saying, "Before the 2014 elections, I had said I would resign from Lok Sabha if BJP gets a majority on its own".

The Union government has put on hold Karnataka government's proposal to approve an official flag for the state.

The video plays like an episode of "Karnataka's Most Wanted".

The Congress leader said even Modi acknowledged Karnataka's employment record which would improve further under the party government.

The Congress manifesto for the Karnataka Assembly polls, released on April 27, promised to create one crore jobs and spend Rs 1.25 lakh crore on irrigation over the next five years if re-elected to power.

The prime minister will address election rallies in Tumkur, Gadag, Shimoga and Mangaluru.

"The Congress was talking about anti-incumbency in the state in 2013 but there was no such thing". But after the valour, General Thimayya who saved Kashmir was repeatedly insulted by the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the then defence minister V.K. Krishna Menon because of which General Thimayya had to resign from his post.
