Rahul Gandhi slams BJP at Belgaum
Belgaum (Karnataka), Feb 15: Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi launched the campaign for the Lok Sabha election in South India on Friday by addressing a rally here. The leader launched a scathing attack on the BJP, saying the previous government in the state led by the saffron party had only looted the state and never did anything for the people of Karnataka. "They only worked for Bellary, not Karnataka," he said.

The Gandhi scion said it is the Congress which did the real work in developing the state, including its Information Technology industry, and would contribute more once it returns to power in Centre in May this year. He said the Congress-led government at the Centre has done a lot of things for people's empowerment.
