Narendra Modi in Chitradurga, Karnataka, accuses Congress of insulting Dr. BR Ambedkar

Batting for the re-election of the Congress in Karnataka, senior party leader P Chidambaram today said voters of the state would remember that despite giving an absolute majority to the BJP in 2008, they got "instability" for five years under three chief ministers of the saffron party. Siddaramaiah, the Chief Minister of Karnataka tweeted after Modi's speech, that the Dalit community doesn't need empty promises, and what they need is empowerment and dignity. "It has been a year, but Madam Soniaji did not get time to make a courtesy call to the President, his Prince (Rahul Gandhi) met the President seven months later and that too to hand over a memorandum".

Earlier, at his rally in Chitradurga, PM Modi slammed a minister, facing corruption charges, without naming him directly.

He added that the Congress party neither cared about the present nor the future of Karnataka, but only about remaining in power.

"It is time for Karnataka to bid farewell to the Congress, which is unconcerned about people's welfare", he said.

Asked what he would advise Gandhi now after having urged him to join Twitter, Tharoor said, "I would tell him to keep at it, continue to maintain this unique channel of communication with the people of the country and ignore the trolls and troglodytes along the way, since the positives vastly outweigh the negatives on this medium", Tharoor said.

Trump bemoaned that he was the victim of a "phony Russian Federation witch hunt" and said the news story vindicated his position. Ellis also said that he thought that what Manafort was being accused of was beyond the scope of Mueller's legal authority.

Modi added that his government had brought in a law to hang rapists. "We are moving ahead with the agenda of development".

While the BJP was fighting against the corrupt system, the Congress protects the corrupt, he alleged.

He took a dig at Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah by saying that he was superstitious. I wondered why Congress is so fond of Beds.

"We are committed to give impetus to the textile sector in Karnataka". In a democracy, to win or to lose is a part of elections. But the Congress are "Naamdaars".

"From morning till evening they just say Modi, Modi, Modi". He reiterated that the Congress is against the backward classes and was looting the state. "When we came to power, me made a new stratefy and we have connected 1 lakh villages with the network". He urged the people to help BJP in making a "New Karnataka" by voting in large numbers on May 12.
