Rahul Gandhi meets sanitation workers, pays homage to Ambedkar in Bengaluru

Rahul-Gandhi

"Karnataka's mood is in favour of Congress party and we will the election", Mr Gandhi said, winding up the last lap of his "yatra", which he devoted to mainly attack the Modi regime.

Nearly three lakh BJP karyekartas or workers were present from all across Maharashtra at the event with the core team of party's Maharashtra unit including Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, State President Raosaheb Danwe, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Railway Minister Piyush Goel along with other ministers and MLAs.

Campaigning in Bengaluru ahead of the May 12 Assembly elections in Karnataka, Gandhi said if the Opposition comes together, the ruling alliance will see a "collapse not seen in many years".

Congress MLC Deepak Singh said in Lucknow on Saturday that during his visit, the Congress chief resident would review development works done in his constituency besides meeting party workers at Munshigang guest house. They asserted that Dalits, tribals, minorities and even his own party leaders are "worthless".

The Congress has been demanding details of the deal, alleging that the deal negotiated under its rule was much cheaper than the contract signed by the Modi government.

She had also met Sonia Gandhi, the former Congress president who often does the reaching out to allies and hosts lunch or dinner meetings with opposition leaders. State CM Siddaramaiah, who was accompanied with Bengaluru Mayor R Sampath Raj, informed Gandhi about the termination of hiring by sanitation contractors, adding that the salaries of the workers have been upgraded from Rs 7,500 to Rs 18,000. "They say it to us", Gandhi said. The problem in India is that the person doing the most hard work is not rewarded and the person doing the easiest work is rewarded.

"Bengaluru is the 21st century city in the World in true sense and Congress party will protect its culture". The leader said, "The only way for the government to instill faith in it among youngsters is to create jobs by competing with China, which will be India's competitor for the next 30 years".

He said the Congress would give a vision for India to move forward. One can call the event as a show of power play.

Pegging his confidence on Opposition unity, he said far from the BJP winning the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, even PM Modi might lose from Varanasi if Congress, SP and BSP were united against him.
