Modi driving India looking through rear mirror: Rahul

Arun Jaitley tears into Congress over Rafale deal accuses it of 'seriously compromising' country's security

"I charge the Congress of seriously compromising India's security.Mr Modi has run a clean government for last four years, so let us manufacturer a crisis, let us manufacture an issue", Jaitley said.

Sonia said she would work with Congress President Rahul Gandhi and other colleagues for discussions with the like-minded political parties "to ensure that in the next election, the BJP is defeated, and India is restored to a democratic, inclusive, secular, tolerant and economically progressive path".

Political experts say, Rahul Gandhi, choosing Ballari to embark his election campaign in poll-bound Karnataka was not a random pick but a well-thought strategy. "He never spoke of giving jobs to the youth, but spoke of what Congress did wrong in the past", he said. BS Yeddyurappa did not only welcome Rahul Gandhi in a sarcastic way but he also felt that the Congress chief will fulfil BJP's dream of Congress mukht (free) Karantaka. The country wants to know how he will take the nation forward.

"BJP leader Advani said (at the time) it could not be done". On the first day of his visit, Rahul trained guns at the Narendra Modi government for making false promises.

The former Karnataka chief minister said that the arrival of Rahul Gandhi in Karnataka will only bring good fortunes for the saffron party. "If Bangalore is on its feet today, one of the reasons for it is HAL". "We have asked three questions to Modi - Modiji on what basis did you give the contract to your friend after taking it away from HAL, for what reason?"

Thousands of party cadres and people from different parts of the state attended the rally.

Singh and Nagendra, who are being tried in several cases of illegal mining in Bellary for alleged acts during the BJP's rule in the state between 2008-13 shared the stage with Congress leaders on Saturday, even as Siddaramaiah and Rahul accused the BJP government of 2008-13 of being the most corrupt.
