  • High-octane campaign for Karnataka polls ends

He claimed that while the Congress presented a vision for Karnataka, the BJP leaders restricted themselves to personal attacks against him, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and the party's leader in the Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, had challenged Congress President Rahul Gandhi in a rally saying that you should speak only 15 minutes in English, Hindi or your mother's mother tongue (Italian) without seeing the paper? He went on to add that Sonia has made several sacrifices for India and has also "suffered for the country".

The Congress president, who wrapped up his extensive campaign tour of Karnataka with a press conference, referred to a story about Gautam Buddha to claim the prime minister had "anger" for everybody. The Karnataka elections are seen as a preamble to the 2019 elections and party's are hoping to make in roads into it. CM Siddaramaiah and party president Rahul Gandhi led the rally attended by over ten thousand party workers and supporters. The parties have formed an alliance to contest in the southern state's election. A decision in holding polling in Rajarajeshwari Nagar is yet to be taken by the Election Commission following large-scale unearthing of Voter ID Cards from a premises and prima face case had been established that an attempt was being made to induce a section of the voters in the constituency. About 4 crore 98 lakh voters are eligible to exercise their franchise in the state.
