DGCA Sets Up Panel To Probe Rahul Plane Snag

Congress president Rahul Gandhi

"True to Basavanna's saying, 'Nudidanthe nade, 95 per cent of assurances made five years ago had been implemented".

In a bid to retain power in Karnataka, the ruling Congress on Friday promised to create one crore jobs across the southern state in its manifesto.

The Congress has demanded a thorough probe into the incident involving a technical snag in the aircraft carrying party chief Rahul Gandhi from the national capital to poll-bound Karnataka yesterday.

Noting that the manifesto represented the voice and aspirations of the state's people, the party said that with it, the Congress has reaffirmed its commitment to respect, defend and protect the state's pluralism. The party leaders have collected opinion and suggestions of people before drafting the manifesto. The.manifesto was not drafted in closed-door meetings.

PM Modi reportedly asked Rahul Gandhi whether he was fine, which signaled that the government was not taking the incident lightly. The reason for this step of Amit Shah is that the opposition parties at the national level are portraying BJP of allowing the Reddy brothers to dominate the political scene in Karnataka state.

It also promises that every child in the state will be guaranteed 12 years of school education of good quality and that all college-going students between the ages of 18 and 23 will be given a smartphone.

The Gandhi scion also described the proposed changes in USA visa rules as a "huge setback" for India, which he felt would make it extremely hard for Indians to obtain a U.S. permit to visit or stay in the country.

Chief minister Siddaramaiah, meanwhile, claimed, "Congress will win majority again in the state". He is also expected to address a public gathering at Bantwal region, Dakshina district and Kodagu in the coming days. The Congress president was travelling to Karnataka as part of his poll campaign. The counting of votes will take place on May 15, 2018.
