Rahul Gandhi only does 'election tourism': Piyush Goyal

Karnataka is set to hold Legislative Assembly elections in the first quarter of this year.

In a tit for tat, the party criticised Mr. Gandhi for not speaking on the Mahadayi dispute.

Hitting out at Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah during party's parliamentary meet on Friday said that the Congress chief's style of politics is undemocratic.

Gandhi made the statement on his second day of "Janashirvada Yatra" in the poll-bound state of Karnataka and said that Modi was plunging into the past to attack the Congress party rather than looking at his own performance as a party leader. He on his own changed the contract, Rahul Gandhi said.

Asserting that the state's Congress government is "pro-farmer and pro-poor", following the principles of 14th-century social reformer Basavanna, the Gandhi scion said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah responded to his request to waive loans of farmers in June past year.


Yeddyurappa resigned on July 31, 2011, after the anti-graft body (Lokayukta/Ombudsman) found him involved in the multi-crore mining scam in the state. KPCC chief Parameshwar challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to order an investigation into his allegations against Siddaramaiah government.

He further said that Rahul Gandhi's campaign in Karnataka will only fulfil BJP's dream of a "Congress Mukt Karnataka". "The previous BJP government in Karnataka broke world records in corruption and they come here and talk on corruption pointing at us", he added. "Let him tell us who is taking 10 per cent commission", Parameshwar said.

"Dear @OfficeOfRG, farmers kept committing suicides in Karnataka over the last 5 years and you were no where to be seen".

Gandhi's itinerary in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region included visits to religious places like the Huligemma Temple, Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy Temple and Gavi Siddeshwara Mutt among other places on Saturday.
