Lok Sabha Elections 2019 : Rahul Gandhi Urges Congress- JD(S) To Fight Unitedly To Oust Modi Government

Amidst reports of rumblings  in the coalition government in Karnataka, Congress President Rahul Gandhi in a rally has asked leaders and workers of the Congress-JDS alliance in Karnataka to strive unitedly to defeat the Modi government in the Lok Sabha polls.

He asked the Congress workers and leaders to work for JDS candidates and made a similar appeal to JDS counterparts, emphasising that their main target was to “defeat Modi.”

Gandhi accused the Modi government of benefitting only the rich and his “industrialist friends” and not doing anything to help the farmers who were in distress.

He also raked up the “Yeddyurappa diary” issue, referring to the allegation that the former Chief Minister had paid Rs 1,800 crore as bribe to the party top brass.

“Whose money is Rs 1,800 crore?” Gandhi asked, as he mentioned about the alleged entries in the diary about payments having been made to senior BJP leaders.

“Where did this money come from?” he asked, adding it came from farmers.

Yeddyurappa has rubbished the allegations as “atrocious and malicious” while the Income Tax department has dismissed it as a “forgery document” and a “set of loose papers”.
