Congress chief connects with people in north Karnataka

Congress chief connects with people in north Karnataka

The Prime Minister in his Thanks motion to the President's speech had responded to Congress leader Mallikarjun Khadge's remark saying, "How can one of the leaders say India got a democracy due to Pandit Nehru and the Congress Party?" Pulling up the PM on his comments against Renuka Chowdhury, Kharge warned people that if voted back to power, the Modi government would destroy the ideals of democracy. He claimed that the prime minister had visited Paris himself and changed the contract.

They also asked why state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd was superseded for a Rs 30,000 crore offset contract though it had signed "a work share agreement" with Dassault Aviation. "Modi seized the contract from the company and gave it to his friend [Anil Ambani]". Why did you destroy the bright future of Bengaluru youth? Why did you do this to profit your friend?

"Third question- when you took this decision in Paris and when India's defence minister was buying fish in Goa- did you take permission from the Cabinet Committee on Security?"

He further said that Rahul Gandhi's campaign in Karnataka will only fulfil BJP's dream of a "Congress Mukt Karnataka".

On Sunday, Gandhi will travel by road for public receptions at Kushtagi, Kankagiri and Gangavati, followed by a public meeting at Karatagi in Koppal district. Sonia Gandhi later gave up the Ballari seat preferring Amethi in Uttar Pradesh. Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also accused the government of "doublespeak" and "sacrificing" national interests. The BJP, which is going all out to unseat the rule in the state, is projecting Yeddyurappa, who had quit as chief minister on graft charges, as its chief ministerial candidate. "Why are the prime minister, defence minister and finance minister completely silent on this issue?" he went on to pose.

Gandhi later defended his use of "Jaitlie" for the Union Minister. "I will never forget this is my life".
