Congress President in Karnataka responds to BJP’s jibes at Sonia Gandhi
Ahead of Karnataka elections, Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have been in the news for throwing jibes at each other.
Meanwhile, responding to BJP’s jibes at Sonia Gandhi’s Italian origin, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said on Thursday that she was “more Indian than many Indian people I have met”.
“My mother is more Indian than many Indian people I have met. If the PM likes to abuse her, he may do so if it pleases him,” the Congress president said while addressing a press conference in Bengaluru.
“Today, Ms. Antonio Maino is here in K’taka to save her last citadel from falling! Madam Maino, K’taka needs no lessons from the person who was solely responsible for wasting India’s 10 precious years,” the BJP tweeted.
In another jibe, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, at an election rally on May 1, dared Rahul Gandhi to talk for 15 minutes about the achievements of the Karnataka government in any language, including his “mother’s mother tongue”.
On the last day of campaigning for Karnataka elections, Rahul Gandhi also said he is confident of Congress’ victory.
Earlier he also said that he is ready to be the next Prime Minster.
Elections in Karnataka will be held on May 12 and counting of votes will take place on May 15.
