At a public meeting in Raichur, Karnataka on Sunday, Prime minister Narendra Modi tore into Congress’s fake love for Dalits. He mentioned how Nehru-Gandhi "parivaar" treated tall Dalit leaders like Ambedkar and Ninjalingappa.

According to the BJP, farmers are committing suicides in Karnataka on a mass scale but the arrogant Siddaramaiah. The government is not ready to give up its sleep and his ministers are indulging his rowdyism in Karnataka.

“It's only a matter of time before the most corrupt government of Karnataka is thrown out by the people power. Let's show the people power,” Modi said.

He said there are many people who are sitting in AC rooms and saying there will be a hung assembly.

“I want to tell them. Come here to Raichur and see the mood on the ground,” Modi added.

The Karnataka polls are about the future of the state. “On one side, there is the BJP's development agenda and on the other side is the anti-development Congress,” he said.

He said that Raichur is a land of learning, culture and civility. Congress has picked up none of these virtues. "If they had learned from the land of Raichur, they would not be dividing Karnataka,” he said.

Modi said: “There are many people who are sitting in AC rooms and saying there will be a hung assembly. I want to tell them- come here to Raichur and see the mood on the ground.”

The Karnataka Congress should question Mrs. Sonia Gandhi Ji, who in 2007 clearly stated Karnataka does not have any right over the Mahadayi waters.

Modi said that important sectors such as textiles, Khadi, handlooms and issues like coconut export have been completely ignored by the Congress.

BJP is committed to reviving these sectors and ensuring prosperity for the people of Karnataka.

BJP president Amit Shah pointed out that under 13th Finance Commission, Karnataka received Rs. 88,583 crore, which was increased to Rs. 2,19,506 crore under the Modi government.

Had chief minister Siddaramaiah worked properly, Mahadayi river’s water would have reached the fields of farmers.

There is not a BJP wave in Karnataka but it is a BJP storm, said Shah. The order of Siddaramaiah government us to remove saffron flags from the temples is the worst attempt to communalize this election. They have blatantly done it only to consolidate Muslim votes, said Shah.

Some telling facts from history on how any leader who could pose threat to the supremacy of ‘one family’ in Congress party has been undermined. That is precisely why ‘the family’s ecosystem’ is rattled even today when the dynasty is being challenged.
