NEW DELHI,

BUOYED by collapse of the 3-day-old BJP Government in Karnataka, Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi launched a strong attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of authorising “buying off” MLAs and “disrespecting” institutions.
Gandhi also said while Modi talks of fighting corruption, “he is corruption”.


Shortly of B S Yeddyurappa announced his resignation as the Chief Minister in the Karnataka Assembly, the Congress President told reporters that the Prime Minister was “not bigger than India, the Supreme Court and institutions”.


He hailed the unity shown by the Congress-JD(S) combine and said the Opposition parties will work together to defeat the BJP. “People saw how BJP MLAs, the Speaker left the House before the national anthem was played. It shows they don’t respect institutions,” Gandhi said. “Prime Minister Modi and BJP Chief Amit Shah do not respect any institution...This is the idea we are fighting,” he said.
