The BJP’s Karnataka unit today described Rahul Gandhi as the “Bahadur Shah Zafar of Congress” and predicted that his party would sink with him like the Mughal dynasty. “Siddaramaiah’s model of governance runs on the mantra of maximum division & minimum governance. Rahul Gandhi, the Bahadur Shah Zafar of Congress, must watch his government’s performance at divisions. He’ll find all answers for why people are so eager to decimate Cong in K”taka,” BJP tweeted. Taking potshots at the Congress president, BJP said “the youth in Karnataka not just like Rahul Gandhi, they love him … for his jokes.”
“Congress’s defeat in Karnataka will be the last blow for Rahul Gandhi, the Bahadur Shah Zafar of Congress. With him will sink the Congress party, like the Mughal dynasty, once and for all,” it said. On the roadmap for development of Karnataka, BJP said the party has a three-pronged agenda, namely development, fast-paced development and all-round development.
“BJP has given primary importance for politics of development,” the party said. Hitting back, the Congress said “BJP has three-pronged agenda for Karnataka – development of corrupt Yedyurappa-Reddys, fast-paced development of corrupt Yeddy-Reddys. BJP has given primary importance for politics of corruption,” it said.
The Congress and BJP were locked in a twitter war even yesterday. The Congress twitter handle had posted a video depicting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, who was convicted by a special Jodhpur court in the rape of a minor girl. In retaliation, BJP tweeted pictures of senior Congress leaders like Kamal Nath, Ashok Gehlot, Digvijaya Singh and Motilal Vora with Asaram.
