Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday embarked upon his campaign blitzkrieg in Karnataka, addressing his first of the 15 scheduled rally in Mysuru.

The Congress also accused Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman of lying about no Indian firm being awarded the offset contract by Dassault Aviation despite the manufacturing firm and Reliance Aerostructure Ltd advertising the deal. The Congress chief said: "India is a country of mandir, masjid and churches". Siddaramaiah also taunted Modi by asking if BS Yedyurappa was still the saffron party's Chief Ministerial candidate in Karnataka. As many as 15 rallies are planned in the state and BJP targetted Congress and they aim to unseat Congress from power.

Asserting he will protect Khurshid, Gandhi said: "But I want to say one thing.when the party is fighting a battle.when the party is fighting against the RSS, then we will have to fight together.have to fight with love". The ruling Congress and the top challenger BJP have been at each other's throat in a bitter exchange that has been especially active on social media considering the age demographics and the connected nature of Karnataka.

The former Congress chief said, "I am confident that the voice raised at the rally at the historic Ramlila Maidan will resonate across every household and our fight will be successful in the days to come".




Referring to death of Judge B.H. Loya, he said people in Supreme Court had stated that pressure was being exerted on the court, but Modi was "silent" as he was on the unprecedented press conference of four judges of the Supreme Court in January. "Now let use what happens in Karnataka". This government has betrayed the country. India has been seeing the highest unemployment for the last eight years now. And that is Amit Shah and Modi's thought.

He also accused the Centre of thwarting the Opposition's "No Confidence Motion" in Lok Sabha. "If Parliament does not function, it can pose danger to democracy", he said.

Singh also showed his concern for protecting the democracy of the nation and said, "Democracy is a gift of the Constitution".

The Business Aircraft Operators Association on Monday flagged "deep concern" over the FIR lodged against the operators and pilots of a chartered aircraft carrying Congress president Rahul Gandhi to Hubballi which had developed a technical snag, fearing such moves will lead to avoidable stress for pilots handling VIP flights. Political rivals are being targeted through government agencies. "All this is being done at the behest of an organisation, which follows a certain mindset", she added.
