PM Modi launches Karnataka poll campaign, taunts Rahul Gandhi


SANTHEMARAHALLI ( KARNATAKA): Prime Minister Narendra Modi kicked off his campaign for the Karnataka Assembly elections 2018 with a stinging attack on Rahul Gandhi at a poll rally at Santhemarahalli in southern Karnataka’s Chamarajanagar district. He dared the Congress chief to speak for 15 minutes without reading from a piece of paper.

“He dared me. He claimed that if he speaks for 15 minutes I wouldn’t be able to stand in front of him. You can speak English, you can speak Hindi, you may even be able to speak in your ‘mother’s tongue’. Speak in any language you want. I dare you to speak for 15 minutes without reading from a piece of paper. Speak for 15 minutes on your government’s achievements over the last five year. If you can do that, the people of Karnatak (sic) will accept you,” said Modi.

He also poked fun of the difficulty Rahul Gandhi faced during a speech in pronouncing the names of some icons of Karnataka, like Basaveshwara and Visvesvaraya. A clip of Rahul struggling to pronouncing the names, quite common among Kannadigas, and then settling for a mangled mispronunciation had gone viral. “I invite you to pronounce the names of Basaveshwara and Visvesvaraya correctly once in front of an audience,” he taunted.

  3. É Tas, o Brasil na verdade nunca foi país independente! Apenas mudamos de metrópole ou de vo dizer de dono: de Portugal, passamos para à Espanha, depois para à Inglaterra e agora nós somos colônia do pior lixo da face da Terra: Dos Estados Unidos da América! PQP, ninguém merece isso!

  4. its an interesting read as always…star gazing use to be my favorite pass time even when I didn't know about anything about light years..The mystery and the thoughts allure me both scientifically and philosophically..In India lot of people go by astrology they believe that the moment of stars influence once behavior their present and future though its a field of argument for ages..supporters say its just like the moon influencing the tides…Setting that aside , the questions and the answers and the universe that put forward is something that make me want to know and learn more about it…

  5. Just how next, spotting our team are artificial to the hypothesis that women and men want in rather cold irrigate, just how is it they desire accordingly well?

  7. Vocês já passaram com as crianças em um Drive-Thru? E depois de semanas vocês mandam o carro pra lavar (ou lavam em casa mesmo) e concontram aquelas batatas e restos de hamburguer?Então reparem que esses restos tem a mesma aparência de quando foram comprados, não importa o tempo que se passe. E eu estou falando de um ambiente como um carro, imagina ela que guardou o lanche em um pote. Eu acredito!

  9. Akeem Abdulkareem LanreNovember 18, 2012 at 5:55 amWhy are we conceding goals like this ? The distance left between our holding midfielder and the defenders is too much which lead to their second goal from gareth bale bcos tom huddlesone headed the ball into an open space . We need to start showing a form of champion with superiority and consistent against any team bcos there is no pushover team anymore in the epl.

  10. walkingbreatheYes burns fat, pretty much everything does, even sleeping, or digesting food….There is NO way to burn fat in certain areas, the ONLY way to get rid of localized fat is to have surgery.If you want to burn more fat, walk at a fast clip, enough to make you harder. If you want to tone your lower body, try the shape-ups shoes or detour to walk uphill.

  13. I am thankful for both my families … My biological family who I unfortunately won’t get to see this Thanksgiving, but also my “chosen family” of my friends and roommates who will be helping me to celebrate the holiday and who are there for me no matter what.

  14. here and I’m glad they did that. Most of our family holidays (nothing glamorous) were documented by me! Now, taking some time out with my grown-up camera is still an important activity for me. I take solace in it and feel that ‘all’s right with the world’ after spending some quality time with my camera.

  15. Great goods from you, man. I??ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely great.

  16. Я в этой школе учусь только первый год в 5 классе, и она мне сразу понравилась. Все учителя хорошие, добрые, и всё что вы написали плохое э то не правда. Это гимназия моей мечты. Здесь всё хорошо и все дети получают хорошие знания и хорошое настроение.

  20. Look for a company which can supply online policy buying services as this is an extremely straightforward and secured way of getting a policy and it's also not laborious. It is a good idea for customer to beware before choosing a golfing insurer as there are several corporations who don't provide coverage on sport injury.

  22. “…none of my stories contain anything that you couldn’t find in a George R.R. Martin/Joe Abercrombie style gritty fantasy novel, a Bernard Cornwell historical novel or a vintage bodice ripper. ”Well, actually a great many of the vintage bodice rippers would be in PayPal’s gun-sights. An astonishing number of them included the rape of the heroine, in quite astonishingly eroticized detail. The grandmother of all bodice-rippers, “The Flame and the Flower” opens with a rape.

  23. Hmm…well I am not really sure if I qualify as an expat either, being as I am a borderline illegal immigrant right now. You are the mommy blogger with cute kids and thats different from mommy bloggers with umm…we cant call kids ugly, can we?I hope bad immigrant is reading this and knows she has a fan in you! She is very cool, in a very lady like way. The kind who sits with a straight back and talks at just the right pitch. Unlike people like me whose voice gets louder and shriller with each drink.

  24. Witam!Znowu sporo czasu minęło odkąd miałem czas na wrzucenie komentarza. Niestety bycie ojcem okazało się bardzo czasochłonne. Ale i dające wiele radości. Bardzo ciekawy ten ostatni wpis. Zwłaszcza, że mój synek właśnie jest teraz w tym wieku. Nie wiedziałem (bo i skąd), że dzieciaki już wtedy rozpoznają języki. I pytanie teraz co robić? Nie chcę katować swojego Maćka, ale co ? Mówić przy nim po angielsku, słuchać anglojęzycznych piosenek czy oglądać filmy w oryginale?pozdrawiamTata Maćka

  25. Admiring the commitment you put into your blog and detailed information you present. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  26. voisi un autre monbre J’ai lu les livres, à leurs sorties, que j’ai aimé. Mais oui, le film.. Je le trouve nul. La plupart des personnes maintenant voient les vampires comme dans ce film, et puis les répliques dit d’un ton morne (en VO comme en VF), cul-cul, ennuyeux. Ca n’aurait pas du être fait au cinéma.. Ou alors en changeant les acteurs qui jouent assez mal, ou en supprimant toutes les groupies.


  28. Pitää itsekin kommentoida tätä aihetta. Kävin myös punkinhäädössä ja capillaarihoidossa ja vaikka missä. Olen aika samoilla linjoilla Nooran kanssa hoidon tuloksista. MUTTA: maitokommenttien jälkeen intouduin kysymään lääkäriltä aiheesta ja laktoosirasituskokeen jälkeen sain tulokseksi 100% imeytymishäiriön eli laktoosittomalla mennään. Siinä eivät ihan väärässä sitten olleet. Ruokavalion muutoksen jälkeen hiukset ovat voineet paremmin. Harvenemisen pääsyiksi arvelen kuitenkin punkin sijaan liian "tiukan" päänahan ja talin erittymisen. Ja stressin.

  29. L920 doing pretty good at Flipkart.. Only behind S3 and Note2 (taking original note and s2 out of focus as they aren’t flagships and quite old too) and think that’s only because they both are cheaper and with bigger screens.. Some more marketing and we can beat.. Carry on Nokia

  34. Yahel15 septiembre, 2012Por los últimos comentarios se diría que lo políticamente correcto es fingir que aquí no ha pasado nada, que si algunas ideas han sido perseguidas y acalladas mediante la violencia, “por algo será”, y que lo normal es aceptar sin rechistar que quienes se han servido del chantaje y el asesinato nos gobiernen.Como ciudadano que anhela la libertad me rebelo contra los equidistantes. “Lo único necesario para el triunfo del mal es que los buenos no hagan nada”.Mucho ánimo Gorka, cuenta con mi voto.

  35. Gracias cota, extrañaba tus videos!, pero quedé con una duda.. es que cachay que hace poco estoy usando un astringente (clean&clear) que me recomendó una amiga, pero quería saber si cumplía la misma función del tónico, porque hablaste tan bien de él para la piel grasa, que quiero tenerlo jaja, entonces para reemplazarlo o saber si puedo usar ambos a la vez. Saludos y graciaaas *

  36. Israel is just following in the tradition of the Greek founders of democracy, where everyone had a vote except for women, slaves and resident furriners – that is, the majority of the population.The problem as Israel sees it is how to annex the territory of the west bank while keeping the Arab population permanently disenfranchised. The problem with the one-state solution is precisely democracy.

  37. ???I'm happy with the regular YouTube that I have; I'm don't think I will pay or what ever for the "Pro"…. Flickr has the "Pro" accounts as well along with the "regular" accounts. Though again I just use the "Regular" account on Flickr I'm happy with my "Regular" account; its fun!
