Clad in traditional attire, Rahul Gandhi visits Shringeri Sharadamba temple in Karnataka

Rahul Gandhi In Karnataka, Begins Third Phase Of Janaashirwada Yatre

Addressing a rally at Karnataka's Chikmagalur, the Congress chief even reprimanded the Prime Minister's promise made during the campaigning of 2014 General Election.

"In contrast, our government in the state has spent thrice the amount on irrigation projects than the Modi government did for the entire nation".

His comments came a day after when the state cabinet agreed to grant the status of the religious minority to Lingayats and Veerashaivas, who are followers of Basavanna.

Noting that the motto of the Congress party government in Karnataka was Basavanna's principle "follow what you preach", Gandhi said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah took the lead in waiving off farmers' loans.

This comes two days after the Nehru-Gandhi scion, who recently proclaimed himself to be a "Shiv bhakt (devotee of Shiva)", said at the Congress party's plenary session in New Delhi that it was "strange" that people talked so much about his recent visits to temples in Gujarat.

Gandhi's visit to temples in poll-bound Karnataka has drawn criticism from the BJP.

He said,"Wherever Narendra Modi goes he says in the last 70 years nothing has happened". "He is insulting your parents, poor farmers, labourers and the small businessmen of India".

Five state-run banks were started in the Udupi district and the Congress has ensured that the banks' services reach every corner of the country, he added.

The Congress president also alleged that the Prime Minister helped his industrialist friends to turn their black money into white during demonetisation. "I'm confident that due to the unity and hard work of our party workers, we will win PM Modi speaks about corruption while sharing the stage with his own party members who were jailed for corruption". "We will defeat our opponents with love and truth".

All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Rahul Gandhi has assured expelled party legislators Sampath Kumar and Komatireddy Venkat Reddy that Supreme Court senior advocates such as Kapil Sibal and Abhishek Singhvi would take up their case in the apex court if required.
