Stepping up his attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party and PM Modi over the issue of corruption, Rahul Gandhi said while the Congress’ Siddaramaiah government had a scam-free rule, the BJP had broken “world records” in graft in Karnataka.
The Congress president, continuing with the first leg of his poll campaign in north Karnataka for the second day, said when the BJP was in power in the state, there were “scams one after the other”.
“In the last five years there was not even a single scam, and during their (BJP) time there were scams one after the other, from mining to what not, different scams,” he said.
At roadside meetings in Koppal district during his ongoing Janashirvad Yatra ahead of the state assembly polls, Gandhi said, “Elections are coming, support the Congress party and Siddaramaiah.
Once again bring our government here so that we can together work for you.”
