Rahul Gandhi... asks partymen to stay united


Davangere: Elections are due in Karnataka next year, but for political parties, it is never too early to start preparations. The Congress' Rahul Gandhi has spent the weekend in north Karnataka in a bid to rally the Congress troops and take on the ruling BJP which is facing troubles of its own.


And Mr Gandhi did not miss the chance of raising the issue of corruption - a sensitive point for the BJP in the state - with several party leaders, including former chief minister BS Yeddyurappa, facing graft charges.


"There is no other state more corrupt than the BJP-ruled Karnataka. At a time when half the state is reeling under drought, the ruling party's leaders are busy fighting among themselves," Mr Gandhi said in Hubli.
