Quite in contrast to the Congress party, he said, the Prime Ministerial candidate in BJP is elected with the will of the people of the country and with the mandate of the Karyakartas of the Party. "As a leader of the political party, it is my job to visit the religious institution that invites me".

Referring to BJP leader and Union minister Ananth Kumar Hegde's controversial comments in December past year, Gandhi said that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was dreaming about running the country but that the Congress will not give them this opportunity.

"The Congress party is united in Karnataka, and we are fighting the elections on real and fundamental issues concerning the state", said Rahul Gandhi, adding that while the Congress campaigned on the elections on fundamental issues, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) resorted to personal attacks.

The Congress president said the BJP will not only lose the Karnataka elections, but also those in Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan later this year, and the General Elections in 2019. He pocketed Rs 35,000 crore and ran away from the country.

APN chose the issue to be discussed in its landmark show Mudda on Wednesday afternoon.

He said Congress leaders were out on bail in a Rs 5,000 crore scam and had "absolutely no respect for many of our prominent institutions like the Election Commission, CBI, Army, Enforcement Director or Vice President's office".

Shehzad Poonawala, former Congress activist, said that Gandhi considered himself to be a dynastic ruler.

Ashok Thakur, the spokesman for BJP, said that Congress should forget of forming its government in near future.

"But his speech can not fill the stomachs, can not guarantee women empowerment, jobs, etc", she said.

However, the Sena wondered why the BJP was running "so scared and indulging in chest-beating" over Gandhi's desire to become the Prime Minister should his party won. "Our foreign policy is a disaster now".

"My mother has sacrificed for this country, she has suffered for this country and it shows the quality of the prime minister when he makes these types of comments".

"Are discussions happening with finance, foreign and defence minister on strategies? No".

A massive controversy has rocked Karnataka after almost 10,000 "fake" voter ID cards were seized from a flat in Rajrajeshwari assembly seat, prompting the BJP to demand countermanding of the election claiming Congress was behind the racket, a charge dismissed by the latter as a "lie".

BJP president Amit Shah today slammed the Congress over the recovery of thousands of allegedly fake voter identity cards in Karnataka, claiming that the ruling party in the state was creating fictitious voters to rig the Assembly polls as it had read the writing on the wall that its rule was ending.

Two of the Reddy brothers and several associates have been fielded by the BJP in the Karnataka polls.
