Campaigning in Karnataka today, PM Narendra Modi launched scathing attack on the Congress party and said that the BJP would do well in the state polls. He said that these elections were about family politics of the Congress versus the people’s politics of the BJP.

Shri Modi said that Shri B.S. Yeddyurappa was the hope of the people of Karnataka and he would become the future Chief Minister of the state.

PM Modi greeted the ‘Mazdoors’ on International Labour Day and said that 28th April 2018 would always be remembered in the history of India as due to the efforts of several teams of people, India's villages got electricity. “This happened due to the hardworking Mazdoors”, said the PM. Taking a jibe at the Congress President the PM stated, “Perhaps due to over excitement, the newly elected Congress President forgets decency. He did not even bother to congratulate the hardworking Mazdoors due to whom India's villages are getting electricity.”

Terming the Congress President as ‘Naamdaar’, PM Modi said that he would not know about the ‘Kaamdaars’ as the Congress had nothing but contempt for the poor and the labourers of India whereas the BJP believed in democracy and democratic ideals.

Speaking at length about proving electricity to 18,000 villages, PM Modi targeted the Congress and questioned why those villages lacked power supply since independence. “Dr. Manmohan Singh said we will electrify villages by 2009, Smt. Sonia Gandhi went a step ahead and said we will provide electricity to every house by 2009. But what happened? In 4 years, the Congress party could only electrify 2 villages. This is their record”, said PM Modi.

Recounting the Congress President’s statement that if he speaks for 15 minutes in Parliament Modi will not be able to sit, the PM said challenged him saying, “For 15 minutes, without taking a paper in your hand, can you please talk about the achievements of your government in Karnataka. You can speak in any language as you please- English, Hindi (or Italian).”

Attacking the Karnataka Chief Minister, Shri Modi remarked, “I was reading the papers and saw a 2+1 formula in Karnataka. This is a version of family politics in Karnataka. This is the innovation of the sleeping CM of Karnataka. He fears defeat so changing seats, fighting two seats and in his old seat he has sent his son.” The PM alleged that that even ministers in Congress were following a 1+1 formula as their relatives too were fighting the polls. Shri Modi also said that people of Karnataka were fully aware about the 10% commission government of the Congress in Karnataka and how it had damaged the mission of serving society.

On 12th May, the Prime Minster opined, “The people of Karnataka are not only going to choose their MLA but will decide the future trajectory of the state. Let this vote be for honesty. Let this vote strengthen our commitment to end corruption.”

Further attacking the Congress, the PM stated, “Do you know remember how much currency was found in the home of powerful Congress leaders? It is high time the money that belongs to the 'Kaamdaars' is returned to them from the 'Naamdaars' who usurped it.” Questioning the deteriorating law and order situation in Karnataka, the PM exclaimed, “The respected Lokayukta is not safe, how can the common people be safe!”

Stating that the BJP was focussing on the pride of Karnataka and all round development of the state, the PM questioned the Congress on infrastructure development, curbing corruption, addressing farmer distress in the state and creation of jobs. He said, “We want a Swachh, Sundar and Surakshit Karnataka.”

Lashing out at Congress, PM Modi said that the NDA Government at Centre opened bank accounts for the poor. He said, “Over 31 crores accounts have been opened under Jan Dhan Yojana. If the Congress had ensured their bank accounts, the poor would have contributed so much to the economy. But sadly, Congress never thought about their welfare.”

The PM claimed that Congress leaders' and Congress President's disrespect towards Shri Deve Gowda ji was not acceptable and if such was their mindset, how they could think good for people of Karnataka.

“Congress promotes intolerance and violence. There can be nothing worse than attack on Lokayukta”, he further added.

Shri Modi alleged the Congress government in Karnataka for shedding the sand mafias and remarked that those who loot cannot be accepted to remain in power.

At the public meeting, PM Modi slammed Congress party on mistreating Baba Saheb Ambedkar. He said that the Congress party never accepted Baba Saheb's views and today they were spreading lies before every election.

Tearing into Congress, PM Modi said that just like any fish cannot survive without water, Congress cannot live without power and that is why they were spreading lies and dividing people on the grounds of caste.

Prime Minister Modi assailed the Congress government in Karnataka and asked what they had done in Karnataka to address farmer distress and why did they not ensure proper irrigation facilities to the farmers? He accused Congress for being jealous because it was Modi government that got the majority, a person for humble background became the Prime Minister.

“Farmer welfare is a priority for us. We brought the soil health cards, ensured MSP at 1.5 times of input cost and implemented the Fasal Bima Yojana. Empowering the villages, farmers and the poor is our only motive. Every Budget that we have implemented has welfare of the poor at its core,” said the PM at a rally in Belagavi.

Some parties using appeasement politics as shortcut to power: PM Modi in Kheda

Amidst the ongoing election campaigning in Gujarat, PM Modi's rally spree continued as he addressed public meetings in Gujarat’s Netrang and Kheda today. PM Modi highlighted about the Sankalp Patra released by the state BJP unit for developed Gujarat. He said, “Several resolutions have been taken in the Sankalp Patra to increase the economy of Gujarat, to empower the poor, middle class of the state and for Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas.”

Highlighting how the Double-engine sarkar has ensured faster progress in Gujarat, PM Modi said, be it toilets, gas connections, tap water or electricity connections, all these works have witnessed unprecedented speed in the last 8 years. Tribal families could not even think about them earlier. Today these facilities are reaching every house.”

PM Modi talked about how the BJP government has given direct help to the poor. “As a result of pro-poor policies, more than 3 crore houses have been built under PM Awas Yojana. In this, the central government has sanctioned more than 10 lakh pucca houses for the poor of Gujarat. Of these, 7 lakh have been completed. And the large number of houses are allocated to tribal families,” he added.

Sharing an incident, PM Modi also mentioned how people from rural areas have benefited from the affordable internet data. He shared the gathering that he was late by two minutes here because he wanted to meet two tribal brothers, Avi and Jay. He said, “Avi is 9th standard student while Jay is in 6th. Their parents died 6 years ago due to illness. One was 8 years old and the other was 2 years old then. Both were surviving on their own. Their video story came to my notice and I called CR Patil to do something. I was sitting in Delhi but managed to make arrangements for them. They have own house, fan, computer, TV, all facilities. One today said he wants to become collector, other wants to become engineer.”

 

Highlights from Kheda public meeting

Addressing his second rally of the day, the PM said, “The difference between the BJP and its opponents is that we serve the poor, while parties like the Congress only have cheated the poor. We have done so much for the poor in the country in just eight years, but the Congress kept on giving the slogan of 'Garibi Hatao' for decades. Today even the renowned experts of the world are agreeing that due to the efforts of the BJP government, poverty is reducing rapidly in the country.”

Thrashing the Congress party for demanding proofs from the armed forces for their surgical strike, PM Modi said, "When the country was fighting a decisive battle against terrorism, they wanted to mislead the country and weaken the fight.” He listed down incidents during which the Congress shed tears on the killings of terrorists. Also, he went on to hit out the previous government for 26/11 Mumbai terror attack.

The PM said, “No one can forget how the then Congress government sitting in Delhi used to spend energy in releasing the terrorists. Gujarat had for a long time been a target of terrorism. People of Gujarat were killed in explosions in Surat and Ahmedabad. Congress was at centre then, we asked them to target terrorism but they targeted me instead. Terrorism was at peak in the country. This is the double engine government of BJP, which is continuously working to curb terror. Your one vote in 2014 has helped a lot in eradicating terrorism.”
