Mysuru: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Sunday accused the Narendra Modi government of being 'afraid' to face the no-confidence motion moved against it. "In Parliament, a no-confidence motion against the Modi government has been moved. For the past ten days it has been stalled because the government is afraid," he said at a public rally in Mysuru.

The second half of the budget session of Parliament has been a complete washout since commencement with protests from Congress, AIADMK, TDP and YSR Congress Party on various issues stalling the proceedings. Congress has given the notice to move a no-confidence motion against the Modi government, becoming the third party to do so after YSRCP and TDP.

With the Lok Sabha not being in order, the no-confidence motion of YSRCP and TDP have not been taken up so far. The government has stated that it was willing for a discussion on the no-confidence motion.

Meanwhile, in his speeches almost devoted entirely to attack PM Modi, Rahul chided the government on the Punjab National Bank scam, foreign policy and Jammu and Kashmir situation.

On the upcoming Assembly polls in Karnataka, Gandhi said he was confident of his party winning not only the state but also the 2019 Lok Sabha polls. "Congress needs to fight harder at every single booth and defeat BJP.I am confident that we will win Karnataka in 2018 and in the General Election in 2019 too," Rahul said. He added that Congress would give a tough fight to BJP in each and every booth and give them a crushing defeat.

Terming employment generation the "biggest problem" in the country, Rahul attacked the BJP-led central government for "not" fulfilling the promises it had made to the people such as job creation and addressing the issue of farmers' distress.

Earlier at a rally in KR Pete, he praised the Siddaramaiah government in the state and said that the CM had worked for the poor, downtrodden and backward communities. Rahul even the Siddaramaiah with running a "clean government".
