Prime Minister Narendra Modi may even lose his Varanasi seat in the 2019 General Elections if the Congress, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party unite, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Sunday, PTI reported.

He alleged that for the first time allies of the government blocked the Parliament to protect the government and Prime Minister Modi, who did not have the guts to come and stand in front the Congress in the Parliament.

"We will work towards progress by taking everyone together".

This is how the Karnataka BJP attacked Congress President Rahul Gandhi in a tweet, after he was seen clicking a selfie with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah at one of Bengaluru's Namma Metro stations.

"By equating us with animals, Shah has revealed that there were only two humans - Modi and he himself in the country", mocked Gandhi during his visit to Kolar district to campaign for the ruling Congress ahead of the May 12 Karnataka Assembly polls.

"Earlier today, hitting at BJP chief Amit Shah on his cats and dogs remark, Rahul Gandhi said his remarks were disrespectful and reflect his mentality for Dalits, tribals, minority".

In the recently-held Uttar Pradesh bypolls in Gorakhpur and Phulpur, the BSP and the SP had joined forces and went on to hand a resounding defeat to the BJP in both the seats, vacated respectively by Uttar Pradesh chief minister and deputy chief minister.

At another rally in Bengaluru, Gandhi criticised BJP President Amit Shah. Now the opposition unity has reached a level, that it becomes impossible for BJP to win elections.

Replying to a query, he said small entrepreneurs had a big role to play in the country's development and the Central government should support them in creating jobs. "Party president Rahul Gandhi will also be a key participant in all these events", a senior party leader involved in the party organization said requesting anonymity. "Everybody can see that, you can hear it in his speeches", he said. He said that India will have to pay hugely due to PM Modi's landmark November 8 demonetisation decision.

He also said when Karnataka faced drought for the last four years, it was given less money compared to other states.
