Karnataka election: PM Modi addresses rally in Tumkur

"But JDS has done a big disservice as they have invited from other states extremist (ativadi) and highly communalist (ati-sampradayvadi) forces and those who support extremism into Karnataka and have formed an alliance with them", Modi said. Both the Congress and the BJP are vying for their votes.

The farmers, he said, were suffering because of the policies of successive Congress governments at the Centre and in the state.

He said that the BJP would establish Bengaluru Railway Infrastructure Development Corporation (B-RIDE) to complete the Bengaluru Suburban Rail Network using theRs 17,000 crore provided by the Central government and ensure seamless inter-modal connectivity through proper planning and unified commute cards.

Assailing the Siddaramaiah government for its alleged failure in tackling drought, Modi said instead of mitigating the suffering of farmers, it gave parched lakes to builders for construction activity. "Congress and JD (S) have a secret understanding.an understanding behind the curtains", Modi, who lavished praise on JD (S) patriarch and former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda only a few days ago before training his guns on him, said. "Right now, the JD (S) is working towards saving the Congress in Karnataka".

"Urban infrastructure funds to Karnataka (from) Congress: Rs 6,570 crore (and from) Bharatiya Janata Party: Rs 598 crore". In his election rally here on Thursday, Mr. Modi continued his tirade against the Siddaramaiah government by saying that it had pushed the people of Karnataka into debt, while the coffers of the corrupt were filled.

Hitting out at the BJP's Karnataka manifesto, Rahul Gandhi said that it had nothing unique to offer voters. "It plays like an episode of "Karnataka's Most Wanted", he posted on Twitter. "The BJP government that will come to power and the BJP government in Delhi that is committed to the cause of farmers will work together to bring a change", he said. "Sadly, they do not bother about the farmers", accused the PM in his high-voltage election campaign.

As part of his campaign blitzkrieg, the Prime Minister will address election rallies in Tumkur, Gadag, Shimoga and Mangaluru.

Mr Gandhi also highlighted BJP president Amit Shah's son, Jay Shah's firm making a mind-boggling 16,000 percent increase in profits the year following election of PM Narendra Modi, saying, "Businesses across the nation are facing hardships, while Amit Shah's son turns 50,000 into 8 Cr!"
