In first rally in two years, Sonia Gandhi says PM Modi 'possessed by devil' of Congress-mukt Bharat 8.5.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "possessed by the devil" of Congress-mukt Bharat, and his only accomplishment in the last four years is to have undone the good work of the previous Congress governments, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi said today. Holding her first election rally in two years, Gandhi said all sections of society were facing problems, and questioned Modi on his "favorite promise" of ending corruption. "Modi ji is proud that he can make speeches well. I agree he is a good orator. He speaks like an actor. If speeches could fill the country's stomach, I wish he gave more speeches," she said, taking a swipe at the prime minister. Gandhi never campaigned in an election after she was suddenly taken ill during a road show in Varanasi ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls. Her election rally was seen as an attempt to give a cutting edge to the blitzkrieg launched by his son and Congress president Rahul Gandhi to retain power in Karnataka, the only major state their party rules apart from ...

Holding her first election rally in two years, UPA chairperson president Sonia Gandhi today accused the Modi government of discriminating against Congress-ruled Karnataka, and questioned his slogan of 'sabka saath, sabka vikas'.
