Bengaluru: Modi accuses Congress of making false promise to make Kharge CM

While sharing a news report in which former prime minister and JD (S) chief HD Deve Gowda compliments Prime Minister Narendra Modi's oratory skills, Siddaramaiah reiterated the Congress charge that the BJP and JD (S) have a tacit understanding.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will directly interact with the office bearers and karyakartas of Karnataka's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Mahila Morcha through Namo App via video bridge, on initiatives taken by the government for women empowerment today.

Speaking about various schemes of the Centre, the Prime Minister said, special schemes have been launched for the farmers so that they face no problems during the entire crop cycle. "The urban infrastructure funds given to Karnataka by the Congress was Rs 6570 crore while the BJP provided only Rs 598 crore for the same", the Congress president tweeted. No MSP+50%, for Karnataka farmers.

Rahul also recalled the government's refusal to give the promised "MSP+50% profit" to farmers while grading thePrime Minister.

On Wednesday, Congress communications chief Randeep Surjewala cited official figures to contend that the promise of 50 per cent profit in addition to the minimum support price had been violated and that insurance companies had made a windfall profit of Rs 14,828 crore in 2016-17.

Prime Minister said that our country is moving from women's development to women-led development and this is what his party strongly believes in.

Stating that the 2018 Assembly elections is a fight between national political parties and a regional party, he said there was need to promote regional parties for a healthy federal set up. The poll results will be out three days later on May 15.

"Both of them have had a connection to Karnataka", he noted. "I urge you not to waste your vote on the JDS".

The Congress posted a similar message on its website. Dubbing the Siddaramaiah government as "seedha rupaiah government" (corrupt), a punning allusion to the chief minister's name, Modi said at the Ballari rally that an ordinary man can not get any work done without bribing officials.
