After 2 years Sonia Gandhi addresses a jam-packed rally in Vijayapura

New Delhi, May 8: UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi was in her elements in Karnataka's Bijapur. This rally is special because Sonia Gandhi is addressing a rally after two long years. And the UPA chairperson was sounding thunderous in her speech and attacked the Modi government in the severest way possible. Here are the highlights of her speech: 

-Congress has worked for development of Karnataka and you must know that the central govt is working in a biased manner when it comes to Karnataka. Congress made Karnataka country's number 1 state and started numerous scheme for people: Sonia Gandhi in Bijapur

--Standing by each other and working together, that is the essence of Karnataka and of India: Sonia Gandhi in Bijapur-We have worked tirelessly for the poor. We started Mahatma Gandhi NREGA scheme which was objected by the BJP and by Modi Ji-Farmers of Karnataka have been suffering due to drought, your CM Siddaramaiah wanted to meet PM over this issues but he refused. By doing this he has insulted not only the farmers but also the state of Karnataka-All states that suffered drought were given compensation (by centre), Karnataka was provided with the least, this was like rubbing salting into the wounds of farmers. I ask Modi ji, is this your 'sabka-saath, sabka-vikas?'-Modi ji is proud of the fact that he is a very good orator, I agree with this. He speaks like an actor. I'll be happy if his speeches can end hunger of the country but speeches cannot fill empty stomachs, food is needed for that: Sonia Gandhi in Bijapur-Modi ji par Congress mukt bharat ka junoon hai, unhe iska bhoot laga hai, Congress mukt bharat to chhoriye, vo apne saamne kisi ko bardaash nahi kar sakte-Wherever Modi Ji goes he says wrong things & distorts historical facts. He uses the names of heroes from our history for his political motives.Gandhi did not campaign in any of the state elections after she fell ill during a road show in Varanasi on August 2, 2016.Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be addressing three rallies today: Mangaluru, Bengaluru and Vijaypura.News24Bureau
