He said the moment constitutional bodies find faults with Congress and its leaders even institutions like CAG, CBI, NIA and Enforcement Directorate are subjected to criticism by those who work "under the echo system" of Congress party. No one should make fun of it. Modi became prime minister through this right. All of a sudden one person came and he declared....(he) did not care about others who are standing in the line.

Modi said Gandhi had an inflated ego despite losing 25-30 elections in the last four years.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi today said there was "no contest" between his party's government in Karnataka and the previous BJP regime in the southern state as regards corruption, adding that the saffron party's rule "wins hands down".

"What about he (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) contesting two seats in 2014?"
