Attacking the UPA government for failing to meet the electrification targets, Modi said, "In 2005, (UPA) government promised to get all villages electrified by 2009". Modi did not speak a single word on Doklam during his visit to China. Opinion polls have so far forecast a close fight between the two parties and BJP believes that Modi's whirlwind campaign in the final days before the polls can tilt the scale in its favour.

The Business Aircraft Operators Association on Monday flagged "deep concern" over the FIR lodged against the operators and pilots of a chartered aircraft carrying Congress president Rahul Gandhi to Hubballi which had developed a technical snag, fearing such moves will lead to avoidable stress for pilots handling VIP flights. The Congress president in fact exuded confidence that his party would win the coming state elections, including in Karnataka.

While some in the party read this as Rahul's natural desire to share an emotional moment with them, others felt his reference to Kailash Mansarovar was a subtle way of stressing his religious credentials.

Earlier talking at the Chamarajanagar rally, BJP's chief ministerial candidate B.S Yeddyurappa said the Congress would not win more than 50 seats in the upcoming elections. I only ask one question - are you happy?

PM Modi targeted Congress on promises to provide electricity by 2009.

Congress spokespersons had chosen to distance the party from Khurshid's remarks but Rahul made it clear on Sunday that he understood the point of his argument.

As per the Indian Express reported, PM Modi has a program for a tentative schedule and has been drawn up for 15 rallies.

Modi has not been to poll-bound Karnataka in the last two months. "They tore off ordinances and disrespected him", he said. "In 70 years, we have created this love among the people", said Rahul, referring to the BJP's claim that the Congress had done nothing since Independence. When we go to places of worship, we bow down before truth. "We will have to work together to protect it". However, "at least take your respected mother seriously Madam Sonia had said in 2005 that forget every village, we will electrify every home till 2009".

"A dynasty and their courtiers, who were sent out of state after state by "Jan Aadesh" now pretend to represent "Jan Aakrosh.' Today's Congress rally is nothing but a 'Parivar Akrosh Rally" which highlights their increasing irrelevance", Amit Shah tweeted. "What happened in the last four years is that attacks against women increased, lives of people have become hard because of Gabbar Singh Tax and demonetisation", he said.
