Karnataka polls: Rahul Gandhi holds road show in Bengaluru

Why Muslims of Karnataka Are Likely to Vote for the Congress Again

Rahul Gandhi's "prime minister in 2019" remark in the highly charged electioneering in Karnataka was an issue that Narendra Modi couldn't have left unchallenged.

The BJP leader claimed that Congress was facing defeat in Karnataka.

Prime Minister reminded the voters of Chikkamagaluru that Indira Gandhi too had come to the town for votes in 1977 after Congress party was virtually eradicated in northern India and asked the gathering, "Did she ever come back after making use of your votes?".

Prime Minister counted six common points found in Congress which, in his view, is against the spirit of constitution and democracy.

"It appears day in and day out the namdaar (famous) leader is only thinking about Prime Minister's chair", Mr Modi said.

"There are leaders waiting for 40 years....he came all of a sudden and placed his bucket, and said I will become the prime minister", Modi said during the final lap of his campaign blitz in election-bound Karnataka, where voting will be held on May 12.

He said during the erstwhile UPA regime, the government was for all practical purposes "remote controlled" by Sonia Gandhi. It has lost in nearly all states in the last four years. "Congress will face 2019 elections to dethrone the BJP and it is not a tactical fight but an ideological fight".

Gandhi also said the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) were able to function because the Indian youth are angry as the system was unable to give them jobs.

"What about he (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) contesting two seats in 2014?"

Modi also attacked the Congress for "defaming" institutions such as the CAG, CBI, NIA, ED and RBI by calling them wrong, and saying only the Congress is right and trying to "break the morale" of the Army and security forces by raising questions about them.

When Siddaramaiah was asked why he chose Chamundeshwari for 2018 elections, the Chief Minister said, "here I started my political career, so I wanted to contest my last election from the same constituency".
