Rahul assures win in Karnataka Assembly polls

Union finance minister Arun Jaitley speaks in the Lok Sabha at Parliament on Thursday

"Generally (Lok Sabha) elections are held in the month of May".

Senior Congress leader A K Antony on Sunday claimed "a people's polarisation" was taking place under the leadership of his party chief Rahul Gandhi to defeat the Sangh Parviar, which according to him, was seeking to convert India into a country based on one religion.

"Unemployment and farmers' crises are two of the major challenges in the country, and dalit atrocities are on the rise, but in his (Modi's) entire speech in the Parliament, he did not utter a single word on these issues", Gandhi said in his 40-minute long speech in Hindi.

The Modi government has also failed in keeping its promises of giving 2 crore jobs to the youth of the country each year, said the Congress chief.

The BJP government in the state had seen three chief ministers - B S Yeddyurappa, Sadananda Gowda and Jagadish Shettar - in five years from 2008. "But still Modiji comes here and speaks about corruption against us", he said. He is going from temples to mutts.

He is also scheduled to visit the Sharana Basaveshwara temple and the Khwaja Bande Nawaz dargah, both in Gulbarga, in the evening.

Harvey Weinstein can't escape being a media or legal target. "If a deal is not reached, the Weinstein Co. may be forced into bankruptcy".

In a bitter tone of regret, the head of the Social Media and Digital Communications team of Congress, Divya Spandana claimed that the party's social media team lacks enough access to resources and information unlike the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). "Aren't you ashamed? #RahulMustAnswer #CongressKilledFarmers", the state unit of the BJP said on Twitter on Sunday.

At every public meeting, Rahul reminded the crowd that the benefits they've received so far is due to UPA government decision to amend the constitution to grant the region a special status under Article 371 (J).

Thousands of party cadres and people from different parts of the state attended the rally.

Heading into elections, Congress and the BJP are leaving little to chance to woo influential communities like the Lingayats and Vokkaligas.

Hyderabad-Karnataka accounts for 44 of the 224 assembly seats in the state. KJP and BSRCP have since merged with the BJP.
