In a brutal takedown of Narendra Modi, Congress President Rahul Gandhi today said that the Prime Minister calling Bengaluru a garbage city was insulting and that data nailed his "lies". "If such is their mindset, how can they think good for people of Karnataka?".

Highlighting the achievements of the Congress government ruling in the state said, the Congress chief said that the election is not about the Prime Minister or him, but about the future of Karnataka.

Gandhi, in a Tweet, said the Prime Minister's crop insurance scheme has made the "farmers suffer" while filling the coffers of the private insurance companies that have made "huge profits". The BJP's manifesto under the name "Namma Karnataka Namma Vachana" not only features a host of sops for women, students, farmers and backward classes but also pushes BJP's core agendas of recommending a ban on PFI, reintroducing prevention of cow slaughter bill 2012 and revival of Bhagyalakshmi scheme.

Addressing a rally in Bengaluru, he called the Siddaramaiah government a "gold medalist in corruption where there is competition between departments and ministers over who is more corrupt".

Prime Minister Modi is a public leader who always remains in touch with the citizens and BJP workers, and often holds discussions with them on important issues.

"Both of them have had a connection to Karnataka", he noted. Irrespective of various surveys indicating that the JD (S) would finish third and no one would get majority, he said the ground reality is different and his party was getting spontaneous response from the people.
