PM Modi continues his blitzkrieg against Congress in Ballari, Karnataka

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is going through the third round of campaigning in poll-bound Karnataka today. The prime minister is holding a rally at Ballari. Earlier in the day, the prime minister held a rally at Kalaburagi (Gulbarga). He is also scheduled to hold a public meeting at Bengaluru (North).

Modi had launched his campaign blitzkrieg on Tuesday with a blistering attack on Rahul Gandhi and the Congress party.

At around 3 pm, PM Modi in his typical style addressed the people of Ballari by saying that people’s enthusiasm here proves the last bastion of Congress is set to crumble. He went on to talk about the Congress that has ruined the rich history and legacy of Ballari. That ‘by defaming Ballari, they have disrespected the people of this district’. He went on to blame the Congress government who were not even competent enough to frame a strong mining policy and provide effective water supply despite the state being rich in water resources.

Narendra Modi further went on to incriminate congress of being anti-minority, anti-Dalit, anti-OBC party. He went on to say that the Congress has been trying to block the constitutional validation of a special body meant for OBC welfare. In the last elections, Congress had projected Dalit-leader Mallikarjun Kharge as CM candidate, but once they won the elections he was sidelined, whereas when Atal Bihari Vajpayee government had enough votes to choose a President they chose a Muslim – APJ Abdul Kalam, and now again when Modi government had enough votes, they chose a Dalit, ‘self-less and self-made man’ – Ram Nath Kovind.

Modi went on to reiterate that the Congress party who has always used women empowerment card as a propaganda tool has termed Modi government as ‘Mahila Virodhi’. But how his government appointed the Defence Minister who is a woman and also a member of the Parliament from Karnataka itself. Modi clearly stated that ‘our critics used to say we are anti-women, but we appointed Nirmala Sitharaman as defence minister, which shut them up’.

He also said that Congress government in Karnataka is in ‘sleep mode.’ They did not spend the funds allocated by the central government for the development of Karnataka.

Modi praised the people of Ballari and applauded their determination and understanding for the need to change. Modi in his speech recapitulated that though five years have been wasted, not a minute now will be wasted in changing the future of Karnataka, underlining the fact that people have decided not to vote for Congress, instead bring Modi government to power in Karnataka. The Prime Minister sounded confident in his bid to push BJP’s attempt to add another state in its kitty.

The Prime Minister’s next round of campaigning would be at Tumakuru on May 5.

Modi resumed his campaign in the state after a long break yesterday–the last rally he addressed was in February– as he sought to give a big push to BJP’s efforts to return to power in the state for a second time unseating the Congress.

The BJP has also lined up a line-up of leaders, including Union home minister Rajnath Singh, UniMinisterter for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari, Textiles Minister Smriti Irani, among others to address public meetings in the next few days.
