Prime Minister Narendra Modi questioned the silence of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, during a election rally in Telangana, on why his party has “stopped talking about Ambani and Adani."  

Modi asked whether the Congress has entered into a 'deal', demanding an explanation to the public. "Have tempo loads of notes (money) reached the Congress that it has stopped targeting Ambani-Adani," Modi stated during an election rally at Vemulawada in Telangana. These comments come after the third phase of elections has already started in the nation.

"Ever since elections have been announced, these people (Congress) have stopped abusing Ambani-Adani. I want to ask from Telangana soil, let the Shehzada announce, how much has been lifted from Ambani-Adani. Has tempo loads of notes (currency) reached the Congress? What deal has been arrived at, that abusing Ambani-Adani has stopped overnight," he asked.

The Congress has been attacking the Modi government, accusing the Prime Minister of favouring the top five industrialists in the country, including Gautam Adani and Mukesh Ambani.

Addressing the rally after the third phase of general elections, Modi also said the phase has blown the third 'fuse' of Congress and its INDIA Alliance.

He added four phases of polling were left and with the blessings of the people, the BJP and NDA were marching toward victory.

Attacking the Congress and K Chandrasekhar Rao-led BRS in Telangana, Modi said while the BJP believes in the 'nation first' principle, for the two parties it is 'family first'.

The BRS and Congress openly criticise each other on corruption, but it is a common factor between these parties, he charged.

Taking a veiled swipe at Rahul Gandhi and Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy, he said there is a lot of discussion up to Delhi on the "double R (RR)" tax in the state.
