Karnataka elections: Will Rahul Gandhi's bet on Bengaluru pay off?

Launching a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for mocking Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) rebel leader Shatrughan Sinha said that Naamdar, Kaamdar, Daamdar or any Samajhdar can become PM in India.

As the Karnataka verdict seals the fate of Congress in their last major bastion, the BJP's war cry of "Congress Mukt Bharat" becomes louder. "The Karnataka election was only an interval".

True! the verbal barbs were exchanged during the campaigning in Karnataka but at the end of the day, the winning is what matters and what Modi said proved right.

Singh along with State BJP President Dharamlal Kaushik and several Ministers were present at the party's State headquarters here to celebrate the BJP emerging as the single largest party in Karnataka.

Williams helps Pirates shut out White Sox, 6-0
Pittsburgh built its 4-0 first-inning lead on Adam Frazier's homer , Josh Bell's two-run double and Colin Moran's RBI double. The White Sox are 20-41 in their last 61 Wednesday games and 15-38 in their last 53 during game two of a series.

Also important to note is that Gandhi had started his campaign trail in Karnataka much ahead of the Election Commission announcing poll dates on 27 March. He said Gandhi will naturally have to work on those areas, both to protect the MLAs they already have and to win fresh territory for the Congress. "The Neerav/the Lalit/ the Mallyas/the Bank/the Raffael deal and so on", the BJP MP said.

Even though I am uninvited, like in other states, from Bihar to UP to Gujarat as a star campaigner, for reasons best known to all of us, I shall humbly suggest as an old friend, well-wisher and supporter of the party.Let's not cross limits.

What happens if your definition changes after results and your PPP becomes of the People by the People and for the People, or for that matter turns into Popular People's Party, he said, again tagging Modi.

All ministers in the Modi cabinet will visit different states and will hold press conferences to disseminate the Centre's achievements.
