PM Narendra Modi may lose Varanasi if opposition is united: Rahul Gandhi

In a fresh salvo against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hit out at the PM alleging that his friends raced to find strategic partners after the Government "re-tendered" $15 billion fighter jet deal. But the Modi government has not relented any news.

Replying on Amit Shah's comment Rahul Gandhi said, "They call entire opposition animals, see according to Amit Shah and the basic vision of the BJP RSS - there are only two non-animals in this country".

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today said the government would be able to instill faith among the young only by competing with China in creating jobs, and asserted the issue would be the central theme for India in the coming years.

And in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday accused the opposition of divisive politics and announced that BJP MPs will observe a fast on April 12 to protest the impasse in Parliament, for which he blamed the Congress.

On the fifth round of his visit to poll-bound Karnataka, Mr Gandhi addressed rallies and roadside meetings in Kolar and Chikkaballapur districts and spoke to reporters.

The BSP and the SP jointly fought Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats during the recent bypolls, costing the BJP both the seats, vacated respectively by UP CM Yogi Adiytanath and deputy CM Keasav Prasad Maurya. Now the opposition unity has reached a level, that it becomes impossible for BJP to win elections.

Rahul Gandhi also attacked Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah for comparing Congress leaders to animals. "Peace and harmony has been embodied in the soul of this country and the responsibility to uphold it lies with the Congress", the letter said.

When asked about forging of opposition unity amid varied aspirations of each party and their leaders, Rahul expressed confidence of overcoming it.

"What is happening to Dalits across the country is disgusting and awful and our prime minister has nothing to say".

"When there was a drought in Karnataka, PM Modi gave the least amount of money to the state because it has a Congress government", he said.
