Rahul rallies damp squib in Sirsi, Raichur

 Lacklustre speeches by Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi left the crowds disapppointed at the two rallies he addressed on Monday.

At Sirsi in Uttara Kannada district, he said that the party would create one crore jobs through the employment corridor project if it comes to power.

He alleged that the previous BJP government in the State had indulged in massive corruption, based on the ‘Gujarat model’. 

Gandhi said that the corruption indulged in by the BJP was worth Rs 1 lakh crore.

‘Misleading model’

The Congress vice-president said that efforts were made by the BJP to mislead the people,  in the name of ‘Gujarat model’. 

Gandhi claimed that in development terms, Maharashtra and Karnataka were in the top two positions. But the BJP was falsely saying that Gujarat was in the top position.

Gandhi claimed that the credit for amending Article 371 of the Constitution, to give special status to the Hyderabad-Karnataka region, should go to the Congress-led UPA government.
