"Amit Shah Equating Opposition With Animals Disrespectful": Rahul Gandhi

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over an alleged scam in the Rafale fighter aircraft deal with France. "You can't run this country as an individual, you have to run this country by listening to it, by working with it. and now after four years, he (Modi) has suddenly lost it, because now the wheels are running on them".

Mr Gandhi said the party chief and BJP-RSS considered that there were only two "non-animals" in the country-Amit Shah Shah and PM Modi- and that dalits, tribals, minorities and even his own party leaders "worthless". "We respect Bangalore and we recognize what Bangalore has done for the progress and prosperity of this nation", he said. The BJP's decline will start from Karnataka followed by Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh and Rajasthan. The proprietor of the restaurant showed him pictures of his great grandfather and the first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru and his grandmother and former prime minister Indira Gandhi relishing food there, the source said.

"Finally, we will defeat the BJP-RSS ideology in the Lok Sabha elections in 2019", said Gandhi.

When asked about forging of opposition unity amid varied aspirations of each party and their leaders, Rahul expressed confidence of overcoming it.

During a visit by BJP president Amit Shah to Mumbai last week, the party unveiled a major social outreach which includes Dalits and Other Backward Classes (OBC) at the party's national foundation day.

Talking about the recent coalition between the state parties, he said, "where BJP going to win seats?".

Shah later said what he meant was political parties having no ideological similarities were coming together out of fear of Modi.

"What is happening to Dalits across the country is disgusting and frightful and our prime minister has nothing to say".

Karnataka will go to polls on May 12 to elect its representatives for the 225-member assembly.

Addressing a public rally here to mark the culmination of his "Janarshivad Yatra" covering all regions of the state, he also accused the Narendra Modi government of discriminating against the Congress-ruled Karnataka. He said that India will have to pay hugely due to PM Modi's landmark November 8 demonetisation decision.
