  • Plane Carrying Rahul Gandhi Loses Altitude, Lands Safely: Congress Demands Probe

Following the public rally in Santhemaranahalli, Modi will head to Udupi, visit Krishna Mutt and seek blessings of the Pejawar seer before addressing another rally at AGM College Ground in Udupi at 3 pm. In a sarcastic comment, he went on to add, "We are Kaamdaars. People are standing in the sun outside and we assure you we will not waste your sacrifice".

The theme of this week's rally was 'Waqt hai badlav ka (It's time for change)', introduced at the Congress plenary in March under its new president. "Wherever I go, I speak to people".

Clearly in no mood to spare the Congress president, he next brought up Rahul by challenging him to a debate. "Okay, you don't take Manmohan seriously you tear up his decisions in press conferences" PM Modi said, and referring to a 2013 press conference where Gandhi had attacked the then Manmohan Singh government for bringing in an ordinance shielding convicted MPs. "We will fight those who want to annihilate our Ganga-Jamuni culture", she said. "You can speak in any language as you please- English, Hindi (or Italian)". While the plane managed to land safely at around 1035 hrs, the Congress party was quick to allege that there was a conspiracy behind the mid-air scare.

"April 28th is a day that will be written in golden letters in country's history, because our hardworking people made electricity reach the last unelectrified village Leisang in Manipur".

"Where there is Congress, all roads of development are clogged".

Saudi air strike kills dozens of Yemen rebels including commanders
Witnesses in Sanaa reported more Saudi-led air raids over the capital during the funeral, without reporting any casualties. Shortly after Sammad's funeral began, the Huthis said they had launched eight ballistic missiles into the Sunni kingdom.

Among the issues that have dominated this election so far are: corruption, unemployment, price rise and lack of access to drinking water.

The Congress chief also criticised the prime minister for his "silence" on crimes against women and alleged that while Modi gave the slogan "Beti Bachao Beti Padhao", members of his own party allegedly assaulted women. Oddly Rahul's attack on PM as a "liar" seemed like a take-off from Modi's own warning to BJP Karanataka workers that they should guard against 95 per cent of lies that the Congress peddles by hiring foreign agencies. "However, the BJP neither appreciates different opinions nor does it respect its own elders", he said.

Hailing BJP chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa, Prime Minister Modi asserted that the former will be the new chief minister of the state.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi officially launched his campaign in Karnataka today with a sharp attack on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi. Modi, who continues to be BJP's biggest draw as a campaigner, has usually tilted people's support for the party in the last leg of any poll campaign. The rally will culminate the campaign of BJP in the state.
