    Rahul takes swipe at PM Modi over his 'appetiser' remark

    Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, saying the PM is telling people who have tasted "appetisers" such as "record breaking" unemployment and "back-breaking" inflation that he will serve the "main course" in 2047. Gandhi's remarks were in reference to Modi's comments at rallies recently that the work he has done in the last 10 years is just an "appetiser" and the "main course" is yet to come. In a post in Hindi on X, Gandhi said, "Record-breaking unemployment, back-breaking inflation, farmers martyred due to debt burden and government repression, helpless laborers, tortured traders, the weakest rupee in history against the dollar and the world's biggest corruption 'electoral bond'!" "Narendra Modi is telling the people, who have tasted all these 'appetizers', that in 2047 he will serve 'main course'," the former Congress president said.

    Lalu slams PM Modi for not reining BJP leaders who speak of changing Constitution

    RJD president Lalu Prasad slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for "failure" to rein in BJP leaders who spoke of bringing in "a new Constitution" if the party won a two-third majority in Lok Sabha polls. In a hard-hitting statement, the ailing septuagenarian said the poor and depressed classes held dear the Constitution, framed by Dalit icon Baba Saheb Ambedkar, and those who cast a malevolent glance on it "will have their eyes gouged out". "The PM is actually scared. He is apprehensive of a defeat since he stands exposed before the nation. To cover up his fear he is boasting of 370 plus seats for the BJP", said the former Bihar chief minister.

    BJP's manifesto a collection of jumlas: Dotasra

    Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee president Govind Singh Dotasra said the manifesto released by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is a "collection of jumlas". Dotasra said the manifesto neither has the actual report card of the BJP's 10 years of rule, nor does it present any vision for reducing the basic problems faced by the country's people such as inflation and unemployment. The BJP released its Lok Sabha poll manifesto - 'Sankalp Patra'- on Sunday, prioritising development and welfare while shunning populist measures and contentious issues like the NRC, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi pitching for electing a strong and stable government in an uncertain world.
