Amit Shah, PM Modi only non-animals in country, says Rahul Gandhi

Rahul-Gandhi Rahul criticises PM Modi's mega plan to purchase 110 fighter jets

Pradesh Congress president G Parameshwara had recently said that the party would announce its candidates for all the 224 assembly seats in the state in a "single phase" by April 15.

Congress President @RahulGandhi takes a break during the hectic #JanaAashirwadaYatre campaign to pick up some books from a bookstore on Church Street.

Referring to BJP national president Amit Shah terming the opposition party members "animals", he said: "There are two non-animals in the country, one is Modi and the other is Shah".

"Gandhi, accompanied by party leaders, rode the metro and later shopped for some books at a bookstore in the city centre", a party official said. BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said Gandhi was drawing a leaf from Hitler's propaganda driven by the "big lie technique" that a lie repeated a thousand times would be taken as truth with time. The politician was campaigning in Karnataka as part of his election tour and a fan of the leader can be seen holding a lovely garland.

The Congress chief then headed for the home of Srinivas, a sweeper with the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), where he had breakfast with the family.

"Calling the entire opposition animals.see according to Amit Shah and the basic vision of the BJP RSS, there are only two non-animals in this country. We in the Congress know how to carry people, we are not egotistical people, we don't crush people and we don't destroy people's lives, so we will manage it".

"Rahul baba is asking us what has the Modi government done in four years, but the people of the country are seeking a report of development from four generations of his family", he said.

RSS leaders in Karnataka could not be reached for comment despite repeated attempts.

The Gandhi scion was in Karnataka on Sunday for the Jana Aashirwada Yatre.

To a question about the coalition in Uttar Pradesh, Mr Gandhi said when the three parties (Samajwadi party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Congress) come together, "BJP will win only two seats, that too with luck".

Pegging his confidence on Opposition unity, he said far from the BJP winning the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, even PM Modi might lose from Varanasi if Congress, SP and BSP were united against him.

Speaking on combating corruption, the leader said that Congress when back in power will insist on a one-layer (GST).
