Day after Congress president Rahul Gandhi and PM Narendra Modi launched no-holds-barred ‘war of words’ against each other while campaigning for upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections, the Gandhi scion on Friday said that BJP-RSS is assaulting Dalits across the nation while the prime minister is silent.
Addressing a rally here in poll-bound Karnataka, Gandhi said that even PM Modi has acknowledged state's better employment record. "We would further improve this record by increasing women employment", he said.
Gandhi added that while businesses in India are having a difficult time, the firm owned by the son of BJP president turned Rs 50,000 into Rs 80 crore.
Earlier in the day, the BJP released party's manifesto for the Karnataka Assembly polls and promised allocation of Rs 1.5 lakh crore for irrigation projects and waiver of farm loan up to Rs 1 lakh borrowed from nationalised and cooperative banks.
