After winning over the stake in Karnataka, Congress President Rahul Gandhi hit out at the Prime Minister saying that the PM "is corruption".

He targetted PM Modi by saying that " the purchasing of MLAs in Karnataka was openly authorised by the PM".

He said, "You've seen openly how the PM directly authorized purchasing of MLAs in Karnataka, so the idea that PM spreads in the country that he is fighting corruption, is a blatant lie, he is corruption".

He further took a dig at the BJP and RSS saying that the BJP legislatures left the Vidhan Sabha immediately after Yeddyurappa's resignation, disrespecting the national anthem.

He further said, "Did you notice that after the entire exercise in Karnataka Vidhan Sabha, the BJP legislators and speaker chose to leave the house before the national anthem? It shows they can disrespect any institution if in power, both BJP and RSS have disrespected institutions".

He also said that the joint efforts by the opposition will continue to defeat BJP in the future as well. 

He said, "I am proud that opposition stood together and defeated the BJP and we will continue to do so".
