February 10 (ANI): Union Minister Piyush Goyal on Saturday said that Congress president Rahul Gandhi is coming to Karnataka for "religious tourism". The country doesn't want to hear about the past. "Narendra Modi is the kind of PM who drives the vehicle looking in the rear-view mirror", Gandhi said addressing a party rally here in Hospet in Bellary district, about 350km from Bengaluru, reports IANS.

The first of four such scheduled visits to the state before election campaigning kicks into gear, Gandhi, Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah and the entire state unit of the Congress have been carrying out extensive outreach and campaign programmes to mobilize support to help the party retain power in the state-a feat not achieved for decades by any party.

Assembly elections in Karnataka are scheduled early this year.

Winter Olympics results: Men's luge
German Felix Loch, who has won three consecutive gold medals, was in first in the last run but hit the wall and ended up fifth. But everything fell apart in the final run as Loch looked a shell of his self, unable to control his line down the hill.

The Congress in Karnataka led by Siddaramaiah had walked the talk and followed the principles of Guru Basavanna while Modi had failed on this count, said Mr Gandhi.

Speaking at a panel discussion at the Harvard Kennedy School on "social media in Indian politics", organised by the university in Cambridge, the actor-turned-politician, professionally known as Ramya, claimed that despite several limitations the party president Rahul Gandhi's team is doing a really good job with tweeting.

Gandhi also claimed that the Modi government was slowly ignoring the loans of businessmen who had a debt of around Rs 10 lakh crore but was not ready to write off farmers debt. The clash history between BJP and Congress President Rahul Gandhi is perpetually going on since the last week.

Reich agrees to become Colts HC
If Reich leaves as expected, Pederson likely would consider promoting running backs coach Duce Staley to offensive coordinator. Luck may still be on the mend from his shoulder injury, but landing Reich would be an outstanding hire for the Colts to make.

"Today Rafale aircraft is the biggest issue of corruption in the country". On the second day of his ongoing "Janashirvada Yatra" in northern parts of the state in the poll-bound Karnataka, he said Modi was delving into the past to attack the Congress rather than accounting for his performance.

Lashing out hard at the Prime Minister, Gandhi said, "Modi ji stop giving speeches and start working, because you don't have much time".

Slamming the Congress for disturbing Parliament over the Rafale jets deal with France, Shah explained the main points about the agreement.

Asian Americans skate into Olympic spotlight in record number
Israel's Alexei Bychenko racked up a season's best of 88.49 to finish second with his skate to "Hava Nagila", a Jewish folk song. Shoma Uno laid down the only standout men's performance, filling in for reigning Olympic champion Yuzuru Hanyu quite capably.
