K'taka polls: PM Modi urges Bagalkot weavers to punish Siddaramaiah


Inspired by the good works of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a man from Raichur district in Karnataka has inked face of PM on his back, a news agency ANI reported. "This is a prime minister who has distorted history, especially with regard to the allegations he leveled against the Congress of having sidelined Field Marshal KM Cariappa and General Thimayya", he said.

At poll rallies in Chitradurga and Raichur, he flayed the Congress government led by Siddaramaiah for celebrating the "jayantis of sultans" (birth anniversaries of Muslim rulers) for the sake of "vote bank politics". He reiterated that the Congress is against the backward classes and was looting the state.

Karnataka goes to polls on May 12 and 2,655 candidates, including 219 women, are in the poll fray. "They have played with sentiments and feelings of people of Chitradurga", Modi said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is holding a bunch of rallies across the state every day, has intensified his attacks on Congress. "I have heard that unless there is a "Deal" on the table, this Minister doesn't do anything with full heart (from "Dil")", said the PM.

Targeting Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, the PM said he always keeps character certificates ready in his suitcase. That is why now the Congress prefers to mislead people in the name of the Dalit community. "Reject the Congress that plays such politics even over drinking water", he said. The question that one can ponder is if someone is trying to divide Hindu-Muslim votes to win elections then Indian government should take action against Pakistan, instead of only talking about the interference.

He accused Congress of insulting Dr. B.R Ambedkar, because they didn't present Bharat Ratna to him, since the award was reserved for only one family when the party was in ruling position.

"On May 15, let Congress make any excuses they want.People will punish them for their sins of five years (in Karnataka)", he said. "The time has come to see off such a Congress party", he said.

He added, "In contrast, the Congress Government in Karnataka has not shown any effort to change the lives of our weavers".
