Addressing an election rally in Kengeri, Prime Minister Modi said, "Congress is a gold medallist in corruption. If you don't remove them, they will keep creating troubles for you."
The Prime Minister also highlighted the environmental and sanitation situations under Siddaramaiah led state government.
"Bengaluru is known for its lake but now it has changed into the city of burning lakes. The photos of Bellandur Lake (spilling toxic foam) speak for the government's inefficiency," said Prime Minister Modi.
"They are showing no concern for the city's needs. The talented youth of Karnataka transformed the state into Startup capital but Congress government turned it into a pot-hole capital," Prime Minister Modi said.
He also accused the Congress government of deteriorating the law and order situation in the state.
"Women safety is one of the biggest concerns in Karnataka. Crimes against women are on the rise under the Congress government. Bengaluru was known as the 'computer capital' but the present government has changed it to a 'crime capital'," Prime Minister Modi said, adding that "we are working towards promoting 'Ease of Doing Business', Congress is ensuring Ease of Doing Murder".
He also said that Karnataka government is not sensitive towards other women issues.
He also alleged that Siddaramaiah government did not utilise Centre's funds allocated to the state for developing smart cities.
"Congress's last fortress will collapse. They are spreading rumors of hung assembly; it shows that the BJP will win with absolute majority. Surveys say Janata Dal (Secular) will be distant third and they can't form government so no one should waste their vote on them," Prime Minister Modi said.
Ruling Congress, BJP), and JD (S) are leaving no stone unturned to become victorious in upcoming assembly elections in Karnataka, where voting will be held on May 12, 2018, in all 224 constituencies. The counting of votes and announcement of result will take place on May 15, 2018. (ANI)
