Karnataka election: Thousands of voter IDs seized

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over corruption, saying he had waived loans worth trillions of rupees taken out by industrialists. Some parties within that formation, such as Trinamool Congress, may share BJP's assessment that Rahul is too junior and lacks credentials.

"Recovery of Voter ID cards in Raja Rajeshwari Nagar shows how desperately Congress wants to win the election", Shah said.

Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma, however, dubbed the incident as "stage managed" and said, "The Election Commission must take action, and a police case be registered".

However, the Congress claimed that the flat, where the fake voter IDs were recovered, belongs to Manjula Nanjamuri, a former BJP corporator and a BJP leader from Jalahalli, a fact which the Chief Electoral Officer of Karnataka, Sanjiv Kumar has also admitted. "Our foreign policy has been decimated because he uses foreign policy as an individual exercise", said Rahul Gandhi.

GST and note ban were other reasons for shutting down garment factories, Mr Gandhi said. From the BJP to the Congress and the JD (S), all major parties are leaving no stone unturned to attack their opponents as they try to win over voters.

"He came like a bully, marched his way ahead when there were others waiting with so many years of experience".

"Are you telling me that if India's women are raped, politicians should not discuss it? He has anger for everybody, not just me....and he sees a threat in me", he said. "I am happy if he enjoys making such comments, he is welcome", he said. "This is disrespectful to have the type of discussions that our Prime Minister have when it comes to this election", he added.

"We're going to form the government in Karnataka with full majority and are committed to bringing development", he said.

"If there is democracy left in the country, the BJP should have welcomed Rahul's statement and challenged him to defeat it in 2019", the Sena said.

While tendering her resignation from office, Indira said that "the collective judgment of the electorate must be respected".

Actually Rahul Gandhi had said before attacking PM Modi that PM Modi would not be able to stand if he would speak for 15 minutes in the Parliament. "This is simply nothing but sheer arrogance". Taking a dig at Siddaramaiah, he jokingly said that the BJP would not touch the Rs 40 lakh watch as it is with the assembly speaker.

Two of the Reddy brothers and several associates have been fielded by the BJP in the Karnataka polls.
