PM Modi lashed out at the Karnataka government over alleged corruption, saying that new scams and charges of graft were surfacing “every day” under its watch.
Assembly elections are due in the state in late April or early May.
In the past, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddramaiah has taken strong exception to PM Modi’s remarks and verbal attacks.
The party’s state leaders like B S Yeddyurappa and central ministers Piyush Goel, Prakash Javdekar, Ananth Kumar and D V Sadananada Gowda attended the rally and felicitated Modi with the famous Mysore ‘peta’ (headgear).
Here are the key things PM Modi said in Mysuru and the verbal cross-fire ahead of the Assembly polls:
1) Modi claims BJP will form govt with a ‘mission’: Attacking the Congress government in Karnataka as a “commission” government, PM Modi on Monday said the welfare of the people was never its priority and that the state needed a government with a “mission” under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to ensure all-round development.
The Prime Minister was addressing a public rally in Mysuru. Modi also said that as long as there was a Congress government in Karnataka, the state would not be able to progress. Repeating his comment made earlier this month in Bengaluru, where he had said that the Siddramaiah government in Karnataka worked for “10 per cent commission”, Modi said: “You have a choice to elect a party (BJP) which runs a government with a definite mission and reject a party (Congress) that works only for commission.”
“Karnataka does not require a ‘commission’ government but a ‘mission’ government led by the BJP which will ensure all-round progress of the state…,” Modi said.
2) A ‘lesson’ in store for Congress: “Congress has ruined the state and people will teach them a lesson in the elections,” Modi said, while speaking at the Mharaja College ground in the city, after dedicating various railway projects. | Readmore
