Congress President Rahul Gandhi addressed a rally in Bellary in the poll-bound Karnataka and targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the Rafale agreement being the major example of corruption by BJP Government.

Rahul slammed the Modi-led Government by saying, “PM Modi talks about corruption. But he forgets that it was the BJP government led by B.S. Yeddyurappa that broke the record in corruption. Today, #TheGreatRafaleMystery is another example of major corruption in BJP government,”

“The Rafale deal during UPA was handed to the government-undertaking HAL, based in Bengaluru. But PM Modi stole it from HAL and handed the deal to his industrialist friends. He stole employment from Bengaluru youth.” He further added.

Attacking the Central Government over the issue of unemployment Congress President said, “Modi Govt failed in keeping its promise to employ 2 crore youth. Today a mere 450 youths are provided employment in a day. PM Modi himself has admitted that Karnataka is successful in creating employment”

Rahul maintained his anti Demonetisation and GST pitch in Karnataka and said, “PM Narendra Modi's backward-looking thought caused Demonetisation and #GabbarSinghTax. I request PM Modi to learn from CM Siddaramaiah, who responded to farm crisis by waiving their loans and delivering on his promises.”

Concluding his speech Rahul ended with, “I share a special connection with Ballari. You stood with Smt Sonia Gandhi and chose her when she needed you. I will never forget this is my life.”
