Wearing a Mysore peta - a traditional Kannada headgear - Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a fresh wave of attack on the Congress in poll-bound Karnataka on Thursday afternoon in Kalaburagi (Gulbarga). He lashed out at Rahul Gandhi for "insulting" former PM H D Deve Gowda, recently Rahul had spoken disparagingly of JD (S) "being team B of BJP".Modi said there might be differences between parties, civility and respect should be maintained.
"This election is not only for changing the Congress govt. but for changing the fate of youth, women and farmers of Karnataka. Do not assume that it is only about electing an MLA, it is much beyond that", Modi told an election rally at Navodaya Vidyalaya Grounds in Kalaburagi, about 630 km northwest of Bengaluru.
The attack came ahead of polling for the 224-member Karnataka Assembly, to be held on May 12.
Today, the Prime Minister addressed the issue of doubling the farmers income and said that this year's budget had several farmer-friendly measures that would facilitate value addition and strengthen the supply chain. "I want to ask the Congress, where did your candlelight march go when this was happening in Bidar?" asked PM Modi. Almost 14 lakh farmers in the State got benefits from the PMFBY scheme, he added. He pointed out that Field Marshall KC Cariappa and General KS Thimayya were born in the state, and alleged that both were mistreated by the Congress governments. "It's not expected of them to accept this sin but they can at least keep quiet, when our government has approved its implementation", said the PM. Talking about the "integrated and holistic" approach of his Government towards agriculture and farmers, Modi said from land and water conservation, to making available good quality seeds and electricity, his dispensation looked at them carefully.
