Shettar takes on Rahul, says Gandhi scion insulted people
The BJP on Wednesday stepped up campaigning for the party candidates in Mysore and Chamarajnagar districts with key leaders-CM Jagadish Shettar and national general secretary Anantha Kumar-leading the charge attacking the opposition.

The two leaders toured the twin districts and addressed public rallies. They railed the Congress and KJP accusing it of corruption and double speak. Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s visit to North Karnataka on Tuesday was referred by the two leaders to charge him of insulting the voters. What they picked up in particular was the time Rahul Gandhi addressed the rallies, which, they said, shows his concern for the people who wait for him. Rahul Gandhi has asked the electorate to defeat BJP accusing us of corruption. He spoke for merely 5-10 minutes. This displays his concern for the people waiting in the sun for him for hours, the CM said addressing a rally at Chamarajnagar.

In Mysore, Anantha Kumar said, in all, Rahul Gandhi spoke for 24 minutes at three rallies. This is an affront to the people. According to him, Congress had done badly in the constituencies where Rahul Gandhi had canvassed in Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh. This should work for us, he stated. Congress-led UPA has involved in corruption, he said naming 2G, Commonwealth scam, which, he said has made the country poorer by Rs 10 lakh crores.

Both the leaders downplayed corruption charges made by KJP leader V Dhananjaya Kumar against BJP patriarch L K Advani. ‘Yeddyurappa has apologized and the issue is closed. We’ve complained to the EC,’ Anantha Kumar told reporters. It is cheap politics and there is no need to respond to the charges, Shettar stated. Meanwhile, Dhanajaya Kumar continued to be defiant and said he stands by his charge. Advani control the governments where BJP is ruling. I’ll release the evidence, he said at Chamarajnagar.

Meanwhile, Anantha Kumar has said Congress is afraid to name its CM candidate unlike their party. Let them announce the CM candidate if they really want people to choose their leader in the polls.
