ALL guns blazing, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday mounted a scathing attack on the Congress over corruption, and asserted it will become “Punjab, Puducherry, Parivar” Congress after its defeat in the Karnataka Assembly polls.
With the D-day for the polls drawing closer, Modi upped the ante against the Siddaramaiah Government, alleging it has become a “corruption tank” for the Congress with a pipeline connected to Delhi, “where the money reaches directly”.

He also accused the top Congress leadership of auctioning tickets, party positions and even the chief minister’s post.
“After May 15 (when poll results will be declared), Indian National Congress will be reduced to ‘PPP Congress’-- P for Punjab, P for Puducherry, and P for Parivar (family),” Modi told an election rally in Gadag, where he predicted the State’s ruling party would be decimated in the elections.
He accused the Congress of “auctioning” party tickets and posts, and recalled how a string of scams rocked the erstwhile UPA Government.

“After the helicopter scam, coal scam, CWG scam and many others, the Congress has now started a tender system... There is tender for ticket distribution, for selecting leaders, for choosing even the Chief Minister.
“Their leaders in Karnataka have been told by those above them that the person who promises to send the highest amount of money to Delhi every month will become the chief minister,” he alleged.

Modi said despite a string of electoral losses in Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, and Tripura the Congress was not as worried as it is now when defeat stares it in the face.
