Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, while addressing a gathering in Mangaluru, Karnataka, questioned Rahul Gandhi's credibility and stated that while Rahul is giving guarantees to the people of Karnataka, it is uncertain who can vouch for his own promises.

While speaking to the reporters, Sarma said, “Rahul Gandhi is giving a guarantee to the people of Karnataka, but who will take the guarantee of Rahul Gandhi? Sonia Gandhi has been fighting alone for the last 20 years to make Rahul Gandhi stand, and now this person (Rahul Gandhi) comes and gives a guarantee to the people of Karnataka."

Meanwhile, the state's final leg of campaigning for the May 10 Assembly elections has intensified. Several BJP leaders are campaigning for the elections in the poll-bound state.
