“They have money, marketing, television and media at their disposal. But, Congress is going to win the assembly election in Karnataka because we have the poor, the farmers and the labourers supporting us,” said Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday while referring to the BJP.
Gandhi, who is campaigning in poll-bound Karnataka, said our schemes are for farmers, labourers, and those who are marginalised. The BJP's schemes are only for a few specific rich industrialists. “I, chief minsiter Siddaramaiah, and the entire party will stand with you and will work for you,” reported NDTV quoting Gandhi.
A day earlier, Gandhi claimed that prime minister Narendra Modi's "zero tolerance of corruption" policy was nothing but empty election rhetoric.
"Back in 2014, PM used to say that he wants to be the 'chowkidaar' (watchman) of the nation. One of his former CMs and four ministers have served time in jail, and yet the 'chowkidaar' tells the country that he will fight against corruption," Rahul said.
The Times of India reported that the Gandhi scion has been liberally using the "chowkidaar" jibe against Modi in light of the recent cases of bank fraud.
Gandhi had also tweeted: “Under Modi Ji's "Jan Dhan Loot Yojana", another scam! 390 Cr., involving a Delhi based jeweller. Same modus operandi as Nirav Modi. Fake LOU's. Predictably, like Mallya and Nirav, this promoter too has disappeared while the Govt looked the other way.”
