Uttarakhand polls: Congress turned this devbhoomi into loot bhoomi, says Narendra Modi

The BJP has recorded murmurs of dissent in its ranks after it gave tickets to Congress turncoats. "I will not rest and won't let the looters rest either", Modi said in Pithoragarh, at one of the two rallies he addressed on the penultimate day of campaigning.

Gandhi made the comment reacting to Prime Minister Modi's earlier accusation on former prime minister Manmohan Singh's "skill of bathing in raincoat".

Addressing the media after releasing a Common Minimum Programme (CMP) at a joint press conference with Akhilesh Yadav, in Lucknow, Rahul Gandhi said, "Modi likes to read "janampatri", search Google and peep into bathrooms of people.but he is a failure as PM". "PM Modi's money is very safe".

Launching a counter attack, he said that, "The PM wasn't able to bring back money stashed overseas, neither did he made the list of foreign bank account holders public".

In a video that recently went viral, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Harish Rawat was photoshopped as Bahubali, hero of the south Indian movie dubbed in multiple languages. "No need for emotions and anger.these are elections for growth and prosperity of the state", Akhilesh said.

"Former Chief Minister P Jayalalitha was best friend of the BJP and we try to establish similar rapport with the newly elected Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu", Mr.Naidu said.

"Moreover, she sent military tanks to the Golden Temple in Amritsar to put an end to Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale", the Sena said.

"We want a government for the youth, one that has vision". It was a conscious choice.

Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna praised the Congress rule over the last six decades in India saying that without them Prime Minister Narendra Modi would have been left to rule a banana state such as Rwanda and Somalia.

The party also lauded Indira Gandhi for splitting Pakistan into two in the 1971 war, Rajiv Gandhi for ushering India into the telecommunication age in the 1990s and efforts taken by P V Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh to revive India's economy. "They have been fielded to split votes", he said.
