“Whether the (Congress-led) governments in Karnataka, Chhattisgarh Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh or the forthcoming governments in Telangana and Madhya Pradesh, will be the government of poor not the government of Adani,” the Congress MP said while addressing a rally in the poll-bound Chhattisgarh.

He further hinted that PM Modi cannot make an inquiry on the Adani Group ‘Because after the inquiry the loss will not be for Adani but to someone else’.

"Before every election, BJP presents a number. They say they will get 230 seats-250 seats. But every poor person in Karnataka voted for Congress," he said while talking about BJP's defeat in Karnataka assembly elections.
