Goa Congress chief Shantaram Naik said 'I have resigned from the post of Goa Congress chief to pave the way for the younger generation to come forward.'

Congress president Rahul Gandhi broke his day's silence and responded to the Facebook data scandal on Thursday where he accused the government of "inventing" stories on the Congress's involvement to divert attention from the controversy following External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's statement on the killing of 39 Indian hostages in Iraq's Mosul.

He even raised the issue of Doklam and said, "China is building helipads and airports at our borders in Doklam but Prime Minister Modi is silent". "He is insulting your parents, poor farmers, labourers, small businessmen of India", he said.

In his address, He slammed PM Modi "s initiative "Make in India" and said", Modi Govt's "Make in India" turned out to be a flop film and failed to create jobs.

Hitting back at the BJP, the Congress said that the party availed its services in 2010. Several including the Opposition leaders and the victim's families questioned why the government kept them in the dark, while, others sought refuge in grief and demanded assistance from the Centre.

The support for the Congress in Karnataka was visibly evident when party chief Rahul Gandhi paid a visit to the state this week.

Gandhi said that despite the alleged arrangement between the BJP and JDS, they will be unable to stop the ruling Congress from bagging a majority in the elections.

"He said he will put 15 lakh in every account when elected to power, where is that money".

He also pointed out that Modi has been talking a lot about empowering the farmer community, but his words haven't translated into action. When prime minister speaks of corruption, he is flanked by Yeddyurappa who spent time in prison over corruption charges.

Rahul also accused Modi of not respecting the Indian people. We can never forget this gesture of the people here.

"People do not want to listen to lies or hate speeches".
