Lok Sabha Election 2019: Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra campaigned across Gujarat, Karnataka and UP

New Delhi: 

Congress President Rahul Gandhi visited two states today as part of his party's campaign for the Lok Sabha 2019 elections. Mr Gandhi first visited Gujarat -- the home turf of Prime Minister Narendra Modi -- where addressed a public rally in Bajipura in Tapi district. Mr Gandhi then headed to Karnataka where he addressed two political rallies in Raichur and Chikodi. Only yesterday, PM Modi addressed a public meeting in Karnataka's Chikodi where he claimed that Congress wants to install a "helpless" government. As 14 Lok Sabha constituencies in Karnataka went to polls yesterday, the focus has shifted to the second phase next week with leaders hitting the campaign trail in the northern belt of the state. Of the 28 Lok Sabha seats in Karnataka, fourteen in the northern parts will go to polls on April 23 in the second phase. Also today, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra held a road show in Uttar Pradesh's Kanpur. Before that, Priyanka Gandhi also held detailed parleys with senior party leaders in Amethi to finalise the campaign strategy of her brother and party chief, Rahul Gandhi, who is seeking reelection from the constituency.

Here are the highlights from Rahul Gandhi's visit to Gujarat and Karnataka and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's road show in Kanpur:

Highlights from Rahul Gandhi's public rallies today:
  • PM Modi talks about security of the nation but he is making crores of youth unemployed. Does that strengthen the nation?
  • People have decided in 2019 that in Karnataka, Congress and JD(S), in Andhra Pradesh (Chandrababu) Naidu and across the country those who are fighting against BJP, they will win
  • Narendra Modi will be removed from Delhi. Congress will form the government in Delhi
  • I'm telling you people of Gujarat have decided. I'm coming from Gujarat. There is an undercurrent in favour of Congress in Gujarat
  • People of Gujarat are saying Narendra Modi has not done anything for Gujarat... Lakhs of acres of our land were given to people with big business
  • PM Modi stole the money from your wallets in the name of inflation and gave it to his friends -- Anil Ambani, Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi and Vijay Mallya
  • If voted to power, I promise you that our party will bring back the money from his friends and transfer it into your accounts under the Nyuntam Aay Yojana (NYAY)
  • In a bid to empower women, our party will deposit the entire amount into the bank accounts of the women of the household
  • We will make a government for the poor, businessmen and unemployed youth of the country
