Rahul Gandhi has upped his social media game and has been very defensive from his side. He is seen targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government over loopholes and their inefficiency to deal with prevalent issues.
The BJP released its manifesto for Karnataka on Friday, promising to reach out to various sections, right from freebies for students and smartphones for Below Poverty Line (BPL) women, with its focus being largely on the farm sector. It promised to waive farm loans up to Rs 1 lakh availed of from cooperative as well as nationalised banks per person.
On the other hand, the Congress has made several commitments towards rural development, promotion of Kannada culture and minority welfare in its manifesto. Pitching for women empowerments, the party’s manifesto also mentions that they would work towards raising the employment level of women in the government workforce to 50 percent.
Karnataka will go to polls on May 12, and the results will be announced on May 15.
