Rahul Gandhi said he aims to put an end to hatred in the country and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi needs to be defeated at the Centre for the purpose 

Addressing an election rally at Nampally, Rahul Gandhi alleged that RSS, Modi and "hardliners" have spread hatred in the entire country

"First time, for defamation, I got two years' punishment. My Lok Sabha membership was cancelled. My government house was taken away. I said I don't want it. My home is in the hearts of the crores of poor people in the country," Rahul Gandhi said

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra trained her guns at the ruling BRS in the election-bound Telangana, saying corruption was rampant in the state under the incumbent regime headed by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao

Also hitting out at the BJP, which the Congress has claimed to be in cahoots with the ruling party ahead of the November 30 Assembly elections in Telangana, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra claimed the sole aim of both parties is to remain in power

Addressing a public meeting at Zaheerabad in Telangana on Tuesday, the Congress national general secretary said, "Corruption is rampant in the state on the watch of this government. Commissions are being taken in lieu of projects, both big and small. For big projects, thousands of crores (in commissions) are going into the pockets of some leaders. Such is the level of inflation these days that common people are literally at pains to make ends meet"

Claiming that the BJP and BRS have come together to keep the reins of power at the Centre and the state, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, "The BJP and BRS joined hands with the common cause of staying in power at the Centre and the state. The BJP is the richest party in the country while BRS has the fattest purse here in Telangana. However, the money they have actually belongs to the common man. These funds should have been used to write off the loans of farmers and pay pensions to government employees. In our governments, people's money goes back to them."

Alleging that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has two aircraft, priced at Rs 16,000 crores (taken together), at his disposal, Priyanka said the farmers in the state only make about Rs 27 per day

She said the Congress, if blessed electorally by the people, will extend the same benefits to the people in Telangana and other states as it does in the states it rules
