Rahul likens Modi to cell phone on speaker mode

Nearly two years after abandoning her poll campaign midway in Varanasi, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi hit the campaign trail in Karnataka today addressing a public rally in Bijapur. "I will never forget this day", Basvaraj added.

Addressing a rally in Nargund, Shah said BJP's Tsunami will uproot the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government. He asked the people, if the opposition party has ever done anything for the farmers of the state, and accused the ministers of performing politics in Delhi rather than concentrating the situation at their homes.

In her speech, Sonia Gandhi said,"Modi ji has junoon (passion) of Congress mukt bharat".

Sonia Gandhi said that Modi speaks "wrong wherever he goes".

"At least 18.11 crore LPG customers suffering under the greedy Modi government".

Basaveshwara, he said, spoke about taking everyone along, but the Congress government is trying to "divide castes.Destroy everything.Divide and rule, create rift between between one another. Leave Congress-free India, he can not even tolerate anyone in front of him", she added. "His popularity has declined drastically", Siddaramaiah told NDTV on PM Modi's Karnataka election campaign.

With only a few days left for the Karnataka election campaign to end, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday made his first public remarks on the Lingayat issue, accusing the Congress of practising casteism and dividing people.

The UPA chairperson threw a sharp attack at Prime Minister by accusing him of distorting historical facts for selfish reasons. "He uses the names of heroes from our history for his political motives", she said in Bijapur.

"When there is discussion about patriotism in our country, when there is a discussion about rashtra bhakti, raashtra geet, Vande mataram, some people are anxious", said PM Modi at an election rally in Jamkhandi, Karnataka.

Modi targeted the ruling Siddaramaiah government, saying there was not even a single minister "who has not faced allegations of corruption". During the event, she has commented directly on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

She has not campaigned for nearly two years. Four years have gone by but you didn't bring Lokpal.

This notice comes at a point where in a similar fashion BJP approached the Karnataka High court as Congress called BS Yeddyurappa a "jailbird".

In the last leg of the campaign, PM Modi is set to address a number of rallies covering the length and breadth of the state.
