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.

Congress, allies have raised storm over citizenship law, they are behind unrest and arson: PM Modi in Dumka

The campaigning in Jharkhand has gained momentum as Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed a mega rally in Dumka today. Accusing Congress and the JMM, PM Modi said, “They do not have any roadmap for development of Jharkhand, nor do they have done anything in the past. But we understand your problems and work towards solving them.”

Hitting out at the opposition parties, he said, “The ones whom people of Jharkhand had trusted just worked for their own good. Those people had to be punished by you, but they are still not reformed. They have just been filling their treasury.”

Talking about the Citizenship Amendment Act, PM Modi said that to give respect to the minority communities from Pakistan, Afghanistan, & Bangladesh, who fled to India & were forced to live as refugees, both houses of parliament passed the Citizenship Amendment bill. “Congress and their allies are creating a ruckus. They are doing arson because they did not get their way. Those who are creating violence can be identified by their clothes itself. The work that has been done on Pakistan's money is now being done by Congress,” he said.

The Prime Minister outlined the progress and development successes of the Jharkhand. He said, “Before 2014, the Chief Minister of the state used to claim the construction of 30-35 thousand houses and described it as their achievement. But now we are moving forward with the resolve that every poor person in the country should have their own house.”

Addressing a poll meeting in Dumka, PM Modi said, "The BJP governments at the Centre and the state would continue to protect Jharkhand's 'jal', 'jungle' and 'jameen', no matter what the opposition parties say."

“In Jharkhand, the institutes of higher education, engineering and medical studies like IIT, AIIMS were opened, this is also done by BJP,” asserted PM Modi in Jharkhand's Dumka district. Also, the PM urged citizens of Jharkhand to come out and vote in large numbers.
