At another rally in Bengaluru, Gandhi criticised BJP President Amit Shah.

In the recently-held Uttar Pradesh bypolls in Gorakhpur and Phulpur, the BSP and the SP had joined forces and went on to hand a resounding defeat to the BJP in both the seats, vacated respectively by Uttar Pradesh chief minister and deputy chief minister. "We snatched 11 states from you", Mr Shah said at the event, which is being seen as heralding the BJP's launch of the 2019 Lok Sabha poll campaign. "Under Narendra Modi rule, lotus has bloomed in every part of this country". "Besides (state-run enterprises like) HAL, ISRO, BEL, BEML and ITI, it has best academic and research institutions like IISc and IIM, which attracted global IT firms and multinationals", said Gandhi, who earlier in the day, interacted with workers of the city civic corporation, women entrepreneurs and top executives of India Inc here. "We will take over Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan, and Chattisgarh".

Asked by reporters after the rally if the BJP was taking Mr Gandhi seriously as an opposition leader, Shah said, "Rahul is the Congress president now, so we will talk about him". "It is obvious that we have to come together", Yadav said.

He said even PM Modi may lose if he stands from Varanasi and the three parties were united against him.

Craiglist rival Backpage seized by feds for sex ads, money laundering
Meanwhile, people who said they had placed ads on Backpage complained that they were not issued refunds or notified of a shutdown. Authorities in California also added that 90 percent of the site's income was derived from so-called "adult ads".

Rahul attacked the PM Modi-led BJP government and alleged there was a breakdown in government due to the ruling party's mismanagement, demonetisation and implosion of the financial system. Four years ago, people gave Modi a blank cheque hoping that he'll do good for the country.

Alleging that the entire focus of the the country is on GDP, and not job creation, Gandhi said, for this to happen, there has to be a shift in the mindset just as it was done before the Green and Telecom revolutions. "Mr. Modi has no chance to win in 2019". "We understand, believe and respect what you are".

"Basavanna is an idea, he is the representative of idea of Karnataka, you can go and stand in front of his statue as much as you want, but it won't work if you are destroying the idea... so, it is the mentality..." he said.
