This is the first assembly elections after Gandhi scion takes over the party. "You can steer the nation forward only by looking ahead", he emphasised. "The nation did not elect you to. drive looking in the rear-view mirror", Rahul said at the rally, launching his campaign for the Assembly elections due this summer.
In his speech made on November 14, 2015, Rajnath Singh had said that Nehru was one of the leaders who participated in the freedom struggle and worked towards strengthening democracy in the country. "Speaking of his own party, Rahul Gandhi said that whatever they promise, they make sure that it is done".
The Congress chief alleged that Modi had "personally" changed the Rafale contract during his visit to France and said the prime minister had not answered the three questions posed by him on the deal.
He also advised Rahul to learn "lessons on national security" from former Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee. Gandhi alleges that in his one-hour long speech in Parliament this week, Modi did not speak about the significant issues related to agrarian problems, unemployment, tribal people and Dalits.
Yeddyurappa, who is BJP's Karnataka unit president, also took to Twitter to welcome the Congress president by calling him an "election Hindu". KPCC chief Parameshwar challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to order an investigation into his allegations against Siddaramaiah government.
"Gandhi will inform the people about the policies, programmes and achievements of the state government during the last five years and how the various social welfare schemes have benefitted them", said Ugrappa. All he was interested in criticising and blaming the Congress party.
