PM Narendra Modi may lose Varanasi if opposition is united: Rahul Gandhi

The Congress has also been demanding the Centre to disclose the price of the deal but the Modi-led government has always denied the request saying, "The price of the jets can not be revealed in the interest of national security".

Attacking the government over its failure in the past four years, Rahul Gandhi stated a lot could have been achieved as PM Modi had a "very good" opportunity after winning the 2014 elections.

"Nirav Modi is an example, Vijay Mallya, Lalit Modi, Piyush Goyal. they are all examples", Gandhi said.

Mr Gandhi was having an informal interaction with the media here on the conclusion of his sixth leg of campaign for the May 12 Karnataka Assembly polls.

"There are only two non-animals in this country".

"One can easily make out that from Modi's face while Shah is so tensed that he ended up praising Karnataka's roads as the best in the country at a function in Maharashtra recently".

He further recalled some of the Karnataka leaders like Basavanna and Kempegowda and said, "they taught that the only way to move forward is to carry everybody together and to respect everybody".

That's fine, that is the way they look at the world. "It is a disrespectful statement, but we don't take what Mr Amit Shah says with too much seriousness", Gandhi said.

Rahul said he has asked his party leaders nottocriticiseUnion finance minister who underwent a kidney transplant on Saturday. It doesn't stop there.

He said even Mr Modi may lose if he stands from Varanasi and the three parties were united against him.

RAFALE, 40,000 Cr. loss to exchequer was "Sayonara" money to French, so PM could re-tender contract and favour friends, "Gandhi said".

The basic thing is how to get the country out of the "mess that Mr Modi and RSS has put it in", he said. "That's all, that's the reality".

He said the Karnataka polls were a fight against an ideology that wanted to destroy the culture of Bengaluru. Now the opposition unity has gone to a point.

For the second successive day, Gandhi kept the focus on Shah's remark that when huge floods occur, only a banyan tree survives and snakes, mongooses, dogs, cats and other animals climb to save themselves from the rising waters.
