AICC president Rahul Gandhi meets supporters at Kurudumale Ganesha temple during a poll campaign in Kolar Karnataka on Saturday

Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday slammed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah's remarks equating the opposition partieswith animals, alleging that the "disrespectful statement" reflected his "mentality" that considered Dalits, tribals, minorities and even his own party leaders "worthless".

He was on the sixth leg of campaigning as part of the "Janashirvada Yatra" ahead of the May 12 polls in Karnataka. We will take it over. "We in the Congress know how to carry people, we are not egotistical people, we don't crush people and we don't destroy people's lives, so we will manage it", he said. He made it clear that if voted to power again the first priority of Congress would be to get the country out of the "mess that Mr Modi and RSS has put it in".

He termed as "funny", BJP's confidence of breaking the Opposition alliance in Uttar Pradesh. "It's Mr Advani, Mr Manohar Joshi, even Mr Gadkari, it's everybody", he said. Shah later said what he meant was political parties having no ideological similarities were coming together out of fear of Modi.

"Rahul baba is asking us what has the Modi government done in four years, but the people of the country are seeking a report of development from four generations of his family", he said.

Nearly three lakh BJP karyekartas or workers were present from all across Maharashtra at the event with the core team of party's Maharashtra unit including Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, State President Raosaheb Danwe, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, Railway Minister Piyush Goel along with other ministers and MLAs. "When Nagpur runs the country, right by definition there has to be discrimination".

"Forget the BJP and Modi winning in the next elections". Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who was present with city Mayor R Sampath Raj, told Gandhi that Karnataka has abolished the sanitation contractors hiring sanitation workers and enhanced their salaries from Rs 7,500 to Rs 18,000.

He also accused the Narendra Modi government of discriminating against the Congress-ruled Karnataka.

Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath used similar language that led to the BJP lose both the Lok Sabha by-elections in the state, she said, regretting how the standard of discourse has fallen under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi and his disciple Amit Shah.

The visit also saw Gandhi go to temples and other religious places and interact with Hindu seers, besides holding roadshows and mingling with crowds.

"On one side Congress that like Bengaluru works for joining every one, spreads brotherhood and love".
