“Karnataka has seen a long period of opportunistic and selfish coalition governments. Karnataka has faced losses due to such governments. So, for fast-paced development of Karnataka, BJP’s full majority and stable government is needed,” Modi said.
“Can we trust Congress that makes false promises? Should they be allowed to place a step inside Karnataka, or should they be thrown out,” he asked, adding that the people of Karnataka should be cautious and not give them an opportunity “to play their game”.
He even brought up an incident where senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah allegedly assaulted a party member who had gone to meet him at his campaign rally. According to the prime minister, “Those who don’t respect their workers cannot be expected to respect other people.”
