Bangalore, 23rd April: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi hit the campaign trail in Karnataka and slammed the Jagadish Shettar-led BJP government over corruption.
Karnataka is the first state in South to be ruled by BJP and in the five-year period, the state has seen three chief ministers.
Earlier, senior BJP leaders Rajnath singh, Sushma swaraj and LK Advani were campaigning from BJP in Karnataka.
But now from Congress Rahul Gandhil could be a magical card to show his talent in campaign in Karnataka for May 5 assembly election. “BJP has only looted Karnataka during its five-year rule. They are past masters in this,” said Rahul Gandhi in an election rally.
“BJP will lose in Karnataka, we can hear it in Delhi,” the Congress leader said.
Former chief minister B S Yeddyurappa was removed from the post after his name cropped up in the Lokayukta report on illegal mining. Later, he withdrew his support from the government and formed the KJP.
Karnataka will go to elections on May 5 and results will be declared on May 8.
