Modi throws a Big Dare at Rahul Gandhi against 15 minute dare of Rahul Gandhi
In an all-out attack against Rahul Gandhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today dared the Congress president to speak about the Siddaramaiah government’s achievements in Karnataka for 15 minutes, without referring to a written speech.
Narendra Modi’s dare comes in response to Rahul Gandhi’s challenge to the Prime Minister for a 15-minute debate in Parliament. “He said that if I speak for 15 minutes in Parliament, then Modi won’t be able to sit. The fact that he will speak for 15 minutes, that is a big deal,” Modi said while addressing an election rally in Santhemarahalli in Karnataka.
Sharing the dais with BJP’s chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa, Narendra Modi called him the “hope of the people of Karnataka” and said that he is “going to be the future chief minister of the state”. “Before I came here, I was told there is a wave for the BJP… There is not a BJP wave in Karnataka, but a BJP storm,” Narendra Modi said.
Attacking the Congress for dynasty politics, Narendra Modi said that he has read about the “2+1” formula in Karnataka wherein the chief minister (Siddaramaiah) is contesting from two seats and his son from one. For ministers, Modi said, the formula is “1+1”, adding that such formulae must “upset the Congress worker”.
On the issue of development, Narendra Modi said that the Congress is known for delaying projects. “Congress ka kaam hai atkaana, bhatkaana, latkaana,” the Prime Minister said.
