Karnataka victory due to collective efforts, CM will be chosen through consensus: Kharge
Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], May 13 (
Congress victory in Karnataka will awaken country against BJP’s effort to distort Constitution and shake democracy, says Mallikarjun Kharge
All India Congress Committee (AICC) president M. Mallikarjun Kharge said the Congress party’s victory in the Assembly elections in Karnataka will create an awakening in the entire country against the BJP government’s alleged efforts to distort the Indian Constitution and shake its democracy.
Addressing an election meeting at Malavalli in Mandya district on April 29, Mr Kharge accused the ruling party of sending people to jail for speaking the truth while letting loose Central agencies, like Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Income Tax, against people who are supportive of progressive ideas.
He claimed that the speeches by Congress MP Rahul Gandhi in the Lok Sabha and himself in the Rajya Sabha had been removed by the BJP government as they dared to ask questions about the huge rise in the wealth of one individual in a short span of two-and-a-half years.
