“I Don’t Want A BJP-Mukt Bharat”, Says Rahul Gandhi

“PM Modi’s rally on May 1 not only energised the BJP cadre, it even built momentum against the Congress”.

Politics is heating up ahead of the Karnataka Assembly Elections 2018 with the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) campaigning aggressively in the state. That is why he resorts to personal attacks against me.

While addressing Kisan Morcha Karyakartas of Karnataka through Narendra Modi (NaMo) App, he further said that a change in the government is needed to bring changes in the farmer’s condition. The support bases of the two parties are in different regions, with the JD (S) confined to Mysuru and southern Karnataka where the Vokkaligas have a strong presence.

The prime minister accused the Congress of targeting Ballari like thieves and thugs, and destroying its rich history and legacy. He will later address corner meetings and rallies in Bhalki, Humnabad and Bidar city in Bidar. “He is our cherished prime minister, not an outsider like the Congress that has a leadership from outside India”, Kumar said during a round of canvassing.

The memorandum said the EC, the watchdog of free and fair elections, was duty-bound to take cognisance and direct registration of offences against all who directly and indirectly indulged in publishing baseless advertisements with an intent to misguide voters and obtain votes unfairly.

Karnataka is one of the last few states which are ruled by the Congress.

Modi also slammed the Congress party for “disrespecting” Sardar Vallabhai Patel. “To all our haters who said that BJP was a Baniya Brahmin party, we made a Dalit the President and we made a OBC, a chai waala the Prime Minister”, he said.

Diverting his attention towards Chief Minister Siddharamaiah, the former PM said that when J.H. Patel was the CM of Karnataka, he had put his (Deve Gowda’s) photograph at the Vidhana Soudha.

“Besides, people who went to jail over the mining scam have been given tickets to contest elections this time”, he noted, without actually naming Ballari in- charge Minister, Santosh Lad and MLAs Anand Singh and B. Nagendra, who quit the BJP to join the Congress.

“Here I want to ask what happened to this fund and how much was spent”.

As per the data tweeted out by Rahul, the Congress-led UPA government allocated Rs 6570 crore to Karnataka as opposed to the Modi government at the Centre which has allotted the state the sum of Rs 598 crore, a difference of 1500 per cent.

Gandhi said Modi should do as he says on issues such as depositing Rs15 lakh into the accounts of every Indian citizen.

A sensitive Govt dedicated to development of farmers is needed in K'taka PM Modi
