False dreams false promises Rahul Gandhi's latest attack on PM Modi in Karnataka

The Congress leader said the good intentions of introducing GST by the previous UPA government was negated by the BJP government instead of a tax friendly regime that benefit the nation, a "Gabbar Singh tax" was introduced.

"The Rafale deal during UPA was handed to the government-undertaking HAL, based in Bengaluru". "The Rafale contract had earlier been given to Hindustan Aeronautics Limited", Gandhi said. "Why did you do this to profit your friend?"

"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.

As part of his 4-day Karnataka visit, Rahul Gandhi will be attending various public gatherings and attend party meetings to further strengthen the position of his party for the upcoming assembly elections in the state.

He also accused the central government of failing to keep its promise to employ 2 crore youth. This was his first visit to the state after he took over as the party chief in December. BS Yeddyurappa did not only welcome Rahul Gandhi in a sarcastic way but he also felt that the Congress chief will fulfil BJP's dream of Congress mukht (free) Karantaka. "PM Modi drives while looking in the rear-view mirror. This country can not be run by looking in the rearview mirror", Gandhi said, as he flayed him for talking only about the past.

Gandhi said in his one-hour long speech in parliament this week, Modi did not speak about the burning issues pertaining to the agrarian problem, unemployment, tribals and Dalits.

He advised the prime minister "to learn governance" from state chief minister Siddaramaiah "who runs the government looking forward". "The Prime Minister has the power to investigate. This country wants to know your future plans for the country", the Congress leader said. "But this seems to be a game of maximum publicity, minimum government, or put another way, maximum marketing, minimum delivery", Gandhi said.

"Congress party works and does not give excuses".
