PM Modi hails Siddaganga Mutt, slams Congress for anti-farmer policies

PM Modi hails Siddaganga Mutt, slams Congress for anti-farmer policies

PM Narendra Modi on Saturday said the Congress and the JD (S) have entered into a "secret" pact for the Karnataka Assembly polls. I chose to resign, but Modi persuaded me against doing so.

The meeting, which will be held two days after the declaration of the results of the Karnataka Assembly polls, will focus mainly on the pro-poor initiatives of the government and the role of the cells in their publicity.

Invoking Former PM Atal Behari Vajpayee, Modi said that Vajpayee's dream of river-linking remained unfulfilled and promised that the BJP Government will link Hemavati and Netravati rivers which will directly benefit farmers of 8 districts.

Referring to the water problem in Tumakuru, PM accused Siddaramaiah government of ignoring farmers.

Claiming that the Congress government in the state has delivered on its promises via various welfare schemes, he said that even the Prime Minister has acknowledged the state's better employment record.

The youth with entrepreneurial tendency made Bengaluru a startup, but Congress turned it into a "pothole club", Modi said. "Now, the Congress has stopped saying "Gareeb" because the people of India have elected a person belonging to a poor family as their Prime Minister," the PM said.

His possible elevation is seen as an exercise to not only break free of the power tussle between the influential Lingayat and Vokkaliga communities but also groom a new generation of young leaders in a state where the BJP is trying to grow roots.

He also alleged that the Congress has a tender system to distribute tickets for candidates. "I want to ask you, in our country, has even an uneducated person committed the sin of calling our courageous soldiers goons?" Both the Congress and the BJP are vying for their votes.

He asked people to vote for the BJP that only can bring change in the state where the Congress has been in power for the last five years. We would further improve this record by increasing women employment.

Hitting out at the BJP's Karnataka manifesto, Rahul Gandhi said that it had nothing unique to offer voters. While addressing a rally, Gandhi said that he will question the government because the land of tribal communities and farmers is being forcefully acquired.

The Siddaramaiah government launched Pink Hoysala vehicles a year ago which patrol the streets of the state capital to ensure safety of women and children.
