Rahul vs Modi: 15-minute debate challenge

Rahul Gandhi tears into BJP over youth being 'branded' with SC/ST tag in MP

"But the new leader of the Congress did not utter two words of praise for the workers who made it possible", Modi said. "You are insulting him", Modi said.

Accusing the Siddaramaiah government of allowing the "sand mafia" to operate in the state, Modi appealed to the people to vote for change and development.

A special invitation is being extended by BJP to all the people for Prime Minister's rally in Udupi.

He also claimed that the Congress could not tolerate the fact that the BJP-led government at the Centre got a majority in the 2014 general elections. Last month, the Congress President had asked the Prime Minister for one-on-one debate for 15 minutes in the parliament.

The BJP is contesting from all the 224 assembly segments in the state in a bid to return to power after it lost to the Congress in the May 2013 elections. Basically, Karnataka present Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is contesting from Chamundeshwari and Badami seats while his son Yathindra, the Congress nominee is contesting from Varuna.

Modi's dare may also be a subtle reference to the 2015 controversy on Rahul Gandhi when the Congress leader copied a condolence note from his Blackberry mobile on to the visitors' book at Nepal embassy.

Apart from Prime Minister Modi, party's national president Amit Shah and party's CM candidate BS Yeddyurappa and Union Minister Ananth Kumar are also holding rallies across the state.

Hitting out at incumbent Karnataka Chief Minister Siddharmaiah, Prime Minister Modi said the present government did nothing for the farmers in the state and assured that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), if elected, would give priority to their welfare. "PM repeats the lie of increasing crime rate for political purposes", he said. Addressing the Santhemarahalli rally, he termed it as the Kannada version of Congress' family politics.

Reacting to Mr Jasrotia induction, Mr Abdullah said Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti and BJP seemed confused about their stand on the Kathua case.

He referred to Mahatma Gandhi's insistence on disbanding the Congress after Independence and said with the party facing defeat after defeat in the last four years, the Father of the Nation's "last dream" was about to materialise with its decimation in the Karnataka polls. The biggest takeaways from that opinion poll is that no one party is expected to cross the magic number of 112 that is required to form the government in the state. But what happened? In 4 years, the Congress party could only electrify 2 villages.

"We are confident that Sriramulu will win that seat", Yeddyurappa said.

He also said by raking up Dalit issue from time to time the Congress has only tried to divide the nation.
