Time for Congress to bid adieu to Karnataka, says PM Modi

"Replying to a question on personal attacks by prime minister Narendra Modi on him and the foreign origins of his mother, Gandhi said it shows the quality of the prime minister". Congress is the biggest opposition party in the country.

Now, the Congress is left with four states in its hold.

Singh claimed that BJP, which is the world's largest political party with 11 crore membership, introduced the culture of grassroots democracy in India.

He said that in the last five years, the GDP of Karnataka increased from Rs 6,43,292 crore to Rs 9,49,111 crore, recording an eight per cent growth.

Gandhi took to Twitter to draw a comparison between the Congress government in Karnataka and the previous BJP regime (2008-13) in the state, with the help of figures to show that his party's rule was better on all counts. Congress has been making a desperate attempt to win the election at any cost.

The reduced margin took a little sheen off BJP's sixth straight win in Gujarat, and lent the much-needed halo to Rahul's head.

However, the BJP will emerge as the victor with a simple majority. Party Leaders are confident that the party will fare well at the polls and the people will give a full majority to the JDS-BSP coalition. There was no anti-incumbency against his government, the Chief Minister claimed. Promising reservation for the Lingayats has sent out a wrong message. The state witnessed a spate of farmers' suicides.

"Is Narendra Modi the only one with the right to be the Prime Minister?"

With the important Lok Sabha polls coming next year, the PM's outreach through this app will only increase, he added. That question could be resolved if Congress were to do particularly well in assembly elections between now and then. His statement is being discussed at several levels while Karnataka election campaign has reached its climax.

Caste plays a crucial role in Karnataka politics.

Shah also accused the incumbent Siddaramaiah government of "working for only community".

By all reckoning, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi's election meeting in Bidar was a last minute decision. During the campaigns, as part of their strategy, BJP slammed Congress for sidelining senior Dalit leader Mallikarjuna Kharge.

Maintaining that the BJP feels "uncomfortable" about his temple visits, Gandhi said, "I don't think they understand the term Hindu, because the term Hindu is a perspective, it is something that is in the heart, it is imbibed". He said that taking inspiration from the life of Baba Sahib Ambedkar, his party is trying to fulfill Dr Ambedkar's dream of a powerful and prosperous nation.
