With the May 10 Karnataka Assembly Elections round the corner, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a two-day visit to the state starting Saturday, where he is scheduled to address six public meetings and hold two roadshows.
While speaking at a rally in Karnataka’s Humnabad, Modi said that foreign investment has tripled under the BJP regime.
“Foreign investment has increased thrice in the state under the BJP regime compared to the Congress regime. There is double development with double speed in the state. Karnataka is ready for the BJP govt again,” he said.
Modi took a jibe at the Congress stating that the party only made fake promises to the farmers and people of Karnataka. He further said that farmers of the state have received no benefits under the Congress rule.
“Congress had only made fake promises to the farmers and people of Karnataka. Farmers of the state have received no benefits under the Congress government,” Modi said.
“Congress shouldn’t forget that each time they indulged in abuse politics, people responded with the power of their votes,” Modi said in response to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’s ‘poisonous snake’ remark.’
