"As in the previous visit, Gandhi will address public meetings, participate in a women's rally, interact with various groups and flag-off a half marathon over the next three days, travelling in a special bus along with state leaders in the erstwhile Bombay-Karnataka region", said Parameshwara. "One of his former CMs and four ministers have served time in jail, and yet the "chowkidaar" tells the country that he will fight against corruption", the news agency ANI quoted Rahul Gandhi as saying. "Shah's son converts Rs 50,000 to Rs 80 crore in three months and the chowkidar of the country doesn't get it enquired and doesn't even utter a word", he alleged. Modi had told the country to stand in line (queues at banks) for the fight against corruption. "We are in a winning position in Haryana and Maharashtra", Narayanasamy said.
The Congress chief also alleged that the "thieves" in India had converted their black money into white with the help of Modi.
Modi said several countries that attained independence after India are ahead of our country in terms of development. What is being made in India when everything from watches to shirts to shoes you buy are "Made in China".
Mr. Modi said his government had sanctioned ₹450 crore for the expansion of Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, started flight service from Puducherry to Hyderabad and Bengaluru under the regional connectivity scheme and revived the port project.
"When any BJP worker assaults any adivasi or Dalit or anyone from the minority community, he is working against Basavanna, Akkamahadevi and Rani Chennamma", Rahul said. Chennamma was the queen of Kittur, best known for leading an armed rebellion against the British East India Company in 1824.
Slamming the Narayanasamy-led Congress government for not holding local body elections for years, he said the party had snatched away the democratic rights of people living in rural areas.
Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah also hit out at PM Modi, calling him "the great facilitator of corruption", while asserting that he had headed an honest government since coming to power in 2013.
Predicting the electoral reverses for the Congress in elections to north-eastern States and Karnataka, he said the Congress rule would be limited to a few States, including the Union Territory of Puducherry.
