Every Karyakarta of Karnataka BJP is my companion, dear friend and brother: PM Modi in Davanagere
BJP has converted ‘politics of perception’ into ‘politics of performance’: PM Modi in Davanagere, Karnataka
BJP government with absolute majority is very important for the rapid development of Karnataka: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a massive BJP rally in Karnataka’s Davanagere and reaffirmed the saffron party’s commitment to the development journey of the state. He expressed gratitude to the people for the spectacular welcome at the venue and highlighted double-engine government’s efforts to transform the lives of people of Karnataka.

“Every time I come to Davanagere, your affection towards me keeps on growing. This clearly indicates the mood of Karnataka,” he remarked mentioning BJP’s victories for the posts of Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Kalaburagi Municipal Corporation, which is also the seat of Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge. Congratulating the Party Karyakartas for the feat, PM Modi said that with the BJP’s win, the victory bugle had been sounded for the upcoming state elections.

Referring to a recent incident of a Congress party worker being slapped by former Karnataka chief minister and Congress leader Siddaramaiah, PM Modi said, “Those who cannot respect their own party workers, how can anyone expect them to respect the public? I am proud that no one is big or small in BJP, all our Karyakartas are equal. Every Karyakarta of Karnataka BJP is my companion, dear friend and brother.”

Shedding light on how the various initiatives of the double-engine government have transformed the lives of people in Karnataka, PM Modi said that the BJP had converted ‘politics of perception’ into ‘politics of performance.’ He cited examples of the new metro line inauguration, Asia’s biggest airport manufacturing facility at Tumakuru, Shivamogga airport, longest railway platform in Karnataka, Bengaluru-Mysuru Expressway, Narayanpur Left Bank Canal, permanent campus of IIT Dharwad and Jal Jeevan Mission.

The Prime Minister also spoke extensively about how PM-KISAN had proved to be gamechanger for the hardworking farmers of the state. Calling out the fallacies of previous Congress-JD(S) regime, PM Modi said, “In 2019, when the BJP government at the Centre started PM-KISAN scheme, then there was a Congress-JD(S) government here. After asking repeatedly, Congress-JD(S) sent only a few names of eligible farmers to the central government. As soon as the double engine government was given the opportunity to serve the state, it rectified the mistakes of Congress-JD(S) alliance. Today about 60 lakh farmers of Karnataka are getting the benefit of PM-KISAN Yojana. Till now, more than 1.5 lakh farmers of Davangere have also benefitted.”

Mentioning that the BJP wanted to make Karnataka the driving force of developed India, PM Modi said Congress saw Karnataka as an ATM to fill coffers of their politicians. He added, “Karnataka has seen a long period of opportunistic and selfish coalition governments. Karnataka has always suffered from such governments. That’s why a stable BJP government with absolute majority is very important for the rapid development of Karnataka.”

Giving another example of how Congress was expert in deceiving the people, PM Modi said, “Congress leaders come with a bundle of false guarantees before every election. We are seeing the latest example of their guarantees in Himachal Pradesh, where before the elections, they promised employment, allowances and even freebies. But when the budget (for Himachal Pradesh) came a few days ago, those promises made before the elections were nowhere to be seen.”

Taking another dig at the Congress, PM Modi stated that people of Karnataka have faith only in the BJP. “Their leaders openly say Modi Teri Qabr Khudegi but people of Karnataka are saying Modi Tera Kamal Khilega,” said the Prime Minister.

Concluding his remarks at Davanagere, PM Modi called for winning every booth in the upcoming state election. The Chief Minister of Karnataka, Shri Basavaraj Bommai, former CM Shri BS Yediyurappa and other BJP leaders joined the rally.
