Countdown for exit of Congress govt in Karnataka has begun: PM Modi

Karnataka govt is setting new records in corruption, alleges Prime Minister Narendra Modi



Countdown for exit of Congress government in has begun, said Prime Minister Narendra

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday embarked on a visit to at the end of the BJP's 90-day rally, called "journey to build a new Karnataka", across the poll-bound state.

Named "Nava Nirmana Parivartana Yatra" (journey to build a new Karnataka), the rally across 224 assembly constituencies of the state was flagged off on November 2 by BJP President Amit Shah.

The city has been turned into a fortress with heightened security for Modi's visit.

"In this Budget, government has made a significant decision so that correct price of crops are given to farmers. If Yeddyurappa, son of a farmer, becomes CM of Karnataka, the projects for farmers will work at its best because Yeddurappa has farmers' best interest at heart," said

"When facilities are provided to villages, migration to cities will go down and the mounting pressure on cities will be released," added at Parivartana Yatre rally.

"There will be chaos in Bengaluru if it doesn't get electricity for a day. However, there are 700,000 homes in Karnataka, which are in dark even after so many years of independence," said Modi.

"There are serious allegations of corruption against Congress leaders. Reports are coming about them demanding commission in several projects. I have been told that Karnataka government is being recognised as '10% govt' as no work is possible without 10% commission," said
