People who have looted the poor will have to return every single paisa: PM Modi in Belagavi

Kolar/Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday wound up his election campaign in Karnataka with a blistering attack on Rahul Gandhi, a day after the Congress president signalled his willingness to contest for prime ministerial responsibilities. "He feels it is an ancestral right (paitruk hak)".

"He did not care about others who are standing in line".

"Look at the arrogance.The Congress party only has about 40 seats in Lok Sabha and in last four years they have been losing elections after elections in various states across India but see the 'ahankar (arrogance)' he (Rahul) now claims in 2019 he will become Prime Minister", Mr Modi said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have read the writing on the wall and that's why a desperate PM and a dejected BJP is resorting to hurling abuses and insulting language, which is alien to the political discourse in india.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today said there was "no contest" between his party's government in Karnataka and the previous BJP regime in the southern state as regards corruption, adding that the saffron party's rule "wins hands down".

Modi called this a display of the Congress president's ego.

The suspension could prove even more costly if he was angling for a lucrative contract extension before the season kicked off. However, it was expected to remain a 1A/1B situation after that worked out so well past year for the NFC South champions.

The chief minister committed the faux pas twice while campaigning for the party candidate in Mandya, about 100 kms from Bengaluru.

About Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' criticism of the Sena's decision to field late BJP MP Chintaman Wanga's son Shrinivas Wanga in the Palghar Lok Sabha by-election, Raut said the BJP took a regrettable decision (by not nominating Shrinivas before the Sena did). Congress is trying to discredit army, after surgical strikes they raised doubts on the army. "For them, the EVM are wrong, the Congress right, the Election Commission wrong, the Congress right", he said.

"Congress only wants to remain in power. PM Modi listed out 6Cs responsible for the damaging the state and these are cultures, communalism, casteism, corruption, crime, and contract system has destroyed Karnataka".

"Yes why not", said Rahul at a press conference in Bengaluru on being asked if he can be PM in 2019. Modi told the crowd that it was now Karnataka's turn to bid "goodbye" to the Congress.
