    I.N.D.I.A bloc government to create crores of 'lakhpatis': Rahul Gandhi

    Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday claimed the Mahalaxmi scheme and his party's promise of the right to apprenticeship, both aimed to uplift the poor women and youth, will change the face of the country by creating crores of "lakhpatis". Addressing a rally in Maharashtra's Amravati district, Gandhi also said no force in the world can change the Constitution of India.

    "The excitement is way higher in the Amravati's people on the arrival of Amit Shah...Congress has always intercepted women and never let them succeed...I believe a healthy fight is something when gender is not used; today, when I have stepped onto the battlefield, I have not picked any gender (male or female) particularly.

    Congress responds after row over Sam Pitroda's US-like inheritance tax in India

    Congress General Secretary in-charge Communications, Jairam Ramesh on Sam Pitroda's inheritance tax statement | "Sam Pitroda has been a mentor, friend, philosopher, and guide to many across the world, including me... Mr Pitroda expresses his opinions freely on issues he feels strongly about. Surely, in a democracy an individual is at liberty to discuss, express, and debate his personal views. This does not mean that Mr. Pitroda's views always reflect the position of the Indian National Congress. Many times they do not. Sensationalising his comments now and tearing them out of context are deliberate and desperate attempts at diverting attention away from Narenda Modi's malicious and mischievous election campaign; that is anchored ONLY in lies and more lies."

    Congress manifesto has become talking point in country, says P Chidambaram

    P Chidambaram on PM Modi's remarks on Congress' manifesto | "Ask him (PM Narendra Modi) to point out one paragraph in the manifesto which will lead to the conclusion that we are appeasing any section. We recognise there is social division, social inequality, and economic inequality in this country. The most affected people are SCs, STs, and the poor irrespective of religion... If bringing justice to every section of society is considered appeasement, then so be it... The Congress' manifesto has become a talking point throughout the length and breadth of this country, even in the remotest villages of Tamil Nadu. Whereas the BJP manifesto vanished without a trace within 2 hours. Nobody talks about it because there is nothing in it... Modi ki guarantee cannot be the manifesto of a political party, therefore he is envious of the Congress manifesto which has become the talking point, and hence he is tarnishing the Congress manifesto. I would urge him to first read our manifesto."

    PM Modi does not do politics on religion basis, never thought of dividing society, says Rajnath Singh

    Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has never done politics on the basis of religion or by dividing the society and stressed that his predecessor Dr Manmohan Singh had in 2006 talked about extending reservation for the Muslims.

    The defence minister made the remarks at an election rally in Greater Noida in support of BJP's Gautam Buddh Nagar Lok Sabha candidate Mahesh Sharma.

    Prime Minister Modi on Sunday suggested that if the Congress comes to power, it would redistribute wealth of people to the Muslims and cited Dr Singh's remark that the minority community had the first claim on the country's resources.

    Addressing a rally in Rajasthan's Banswara, Modi also alleged the Congress plans to give people's hard-earned money and valuables to "infiltrators" and "those who have more children".
