Strongly refuting performance of the Karnataka’s Congress-JD(U)-led government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today described Chief Minister HD Kumarasaway as a `weak Chief Miniter’ and further added CM is `crying’ while the cabinet ministers were involved in corruption.
While on one side half of the Lok Sabha constituencies are on polling, Prime Minister was addressing a rally in Karnataka’s Bagalkot as the polling for the remaining 14 constituencies will be held on April 29.
He lamented that the Karnataka government was looting the state, realising their days are numbered. Indicating that after Lok Sabha polls, the state government bound to collapse, he asserted that the drama unfolding in Karnataka for the past one year is refusing to end. “ This drama has everything including emotions and revenge. The situation is such that we get to see an overflow of emotions regularly in rallies and press conferences,” he added.
PM Modi said that the “grand old party and its allies think about self and not national interest”. He accused that Congress was not ready to accept surgical and Balakot Airstrike as BJP’s victory. In another scathing attack, PM Modi said that “Congress is facing an existential crisis and is trying to divide society”.
This is not the first time that PM Modi launched a blistering attack on the JDS-Congress coalition in Karnataka. Earlier, the Prime Minister had claimed that it (Karnataka government) was interested only in “development-free corruption”.
“People want corruption-free government, but Karnataka government wants development-free corruption,” PM Modi told BJP’s booth-level workers of the state during an interaction with them through video conferencing as part of the party’s ‘Mera Booth Sabse Mazboot’ programme in December last year.
He also took a dig at the agricultural loan waiver announced by the H D Kumaraswamy government by terming it the “most cruel joke” on farmers.
Notably, Karnataka will go to polls on April 18 and April 23 for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections 2019 in the country. The counting of votes will take place on May 23 and the result will come out on the same day.
