Amit Shah's remarks equating opposition with animals disrespectful: Rahul

Supreme Court of India

A direction in this regard has been issued by Congress president Rahul Gandhi to party leaders in all states and the district headquarters, AICC General secretary Ashok Gehlot said. The BSP and the SP jointly fought Gorakhpur and Phulpur Lok Sabha seats during the recent bypolls, costing the BJP both the seats, vacated respectively by Uttar Pradesh chief minister and deputy chief minister.

Praising the efforts of the people of Bengaluru for making the city the second startup capital after Silicon Valley in the USA, Gandhi said: "We respect the services of each one of you - the rich, the poor, the men, and women".

Gandhi was on the sixth leg of campaigning as part of the "Janashirvada Yatra" ahead of the May 12 polls in Karnataka.

The focus, Gandhi said, was to get the country "out of the mess Modi and the RSS put it in". His party has been long alleging that the deal of 36 Rafale fighter jets with the French government was finalized by the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled Centre at a higher price than the previous deal for 126 medium multi-role combat aircraft (MMRCA) negotiated by the Congress led-United Progressive Alliance government.

"Calling the opposition parties animals exposes Shah's mentality and reflects the vision of the BJP and its parent organisation RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh)".

Congress president Rahul Gandhi embarked on the last day of his two-day Bengaluru visit by offering his condolences to bereaved leader Margaret Alva, the former Rajasthan Governor who lost her husband Niranjan Alva on Saturday.

"In fact, I challenge him to stand with three parties united", he added. "It is obvious that we have to come together", Yadav said. Stating that Mr Modi had a "very good" opportunity after the 2014 election, Mr Gandhi said a lot could have been done for the country.

Sources said that before his arrival in UP, Rahul is likely to announce the new state Congress chief as Raj Babbar would be given some other assignments with the possibility of the party using him as star campaigner for the next Parliament polls.

The Gandhi scion was in Karnataka on Sunday for the Jana Aashirwada Yatre.

"On one side Congress that like Bengaluru works for joining every one, spreads brotherhood and love. It's the ideology of spreading anger, hate and dividing", he alleged.
