BJP Peddling Lies to People of the State, Says Karnataka Congress

Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a crowd in Bengaluru, Palace Ground, thanked the people for appearing in such large numbers.

Participating in the concluding programme of the BJP Karnataka unit's 75-day Parivartana Yatra, Modi, in a 58-minute speech, recalled luminaries such as 12th-century saint Basavanna, Bengaluru founder Kempe Gowda, and engineer-scholar-statesman M Visvesvaraya. Asserting that there was a "saffron wave" in the state, Modi said the people of Karnataka have chose to set the state Congress free and get rid of its culture. The Prime Minister said that the Congress was standing at the exit gate and would be thrown out of power later this year, owing to multiple corruption charges and failing law and order.

"I am confident that Karnataka's success makes India proud", he said.

"Thanks for the welcome CM @siddaramaiah avare! Yes". The state will be witnessing the elections in next couple of months. "Electricity will brighten their lives", Modi said.

The tenure of the Karnataka Assembly ends in May this year and Assembly polls will be held in the state before that.

State Congress president G Parameshwara accused Modi of letting down the farmers on the issue.

Earlier on Sunday, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah welcomed the prime minister to Bengaluru, and asked him help the state resolve the Mahadayi water dispute.

The dispute between Karnataka and Goa over the sharing of Mahadayi river water has been going for four decades.

Meanwhile, several Kannada activists assembled on Sunday at Freedom Park in Bengaluru seeking Modi's intervention in resolving the Mahadayi row.

The BJP had tried to champion the issue of Mahadayi, but the sensitive issue backfired.

The party said that BJP Chief Amit Shah and PM Narendra Modi have contradicted each other's claims on allocations of funds to state.

Stating that the BJP is ready to pre-empt any possible attempts by the State Government to scuttle the rally by preventing people from reaching the venue, the State BJP Chief said that more than 100 volunteers, all IT professionals, have been roped in to popularise Modi's visit.

He said that even Modi's speech lacked the passion that was visible in his campaigns in Gujarat.

Modi took the Congress head-on, listing out the State government's failures, including the issue of unspent Central grants.
