Gloves come off in heated lead-up to Karnataka elections

Gloves come off in heated lead-up to Karnataka elections

"A sensitive government, which works for the development of farmers is needed in Karnataka", he added.

The tweet more or less set the tone for the political bickering that followed electioneering in the months ahead.

May 10 is the last day of campaigning for the May 12 election in Karnataka.

"Kalaburagi is known for dal (pulses) cultivation. The BJP Government that will come to power and the BJP Government in Delhi that is committed to the cause of farmers will work together to bring a change", he said. The farmers are working hard here and availing of the benefits of the central government schemes.

"It is our government that has made important decisions of MSP".

"3. No MSP+50 pc, for Karnataka farmers. It's not expected of them to accept this sin but they can at least keep quiet, when our govt has approved its implementation", PM Modi further said. "He can't even attack us on the construction of roads, neither can he question us on farmer issues", Rahul said.

Apart from Prime Minister Modi, party's national president Amit Shah and party's CM candidate BS Yeddyurappa and Union Minister Ananth Kumar are also holding rallies across the state.

He said Field Marshal K.M. Cariappa and Gen. Thimmaiah were "insulted" by the Nehru family. See the way they treated S Nijalingappa ji.

"From insulting Field Marshall Cariappa and General Thimayya to calling our Army Chief a "Sadak ka goonda" right after surgical strikes, they have consistently shown their disdain for our fearless heroes", he said.

"Congress has no respect for the sacrifices of our soldiers".

He also attacked the Congress upon the remark of one of its leaders in which the Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat was compared to a "goonda" (goon). "They kept on asking proof of the strikes from me". "Should our soldiers go on such operations with a camera or a gun?" he said.

Attacking Modi government for surreptitiously using the CBI, Congress leader Rajiv Shukla said, "When on May 27 past year Amit Shah declared Yeddyurappa as BJP's chief ministerial face, the CBI immediately set in motion the process to shut down all cases". They misled the Dalit community.

On Tuesday Modi hit back, challenging the Congress president to speak for 15 minutes on the achievements of the Congress government in Karnataka, without referring to notes and in any language he prefers including that of his mother, Sonia Gandhi, which is Italian.

"Modi is aware about the happenings in Karnataka politics, and also what Rahul Gandhi said about me".
