<p>Koppa (<a href="/search?query=Karnataka">Karnataka</a>) [India], Apr 6 (ANI): Just a week ahead of the commencement of polling in the country, <a href="/search?query=Karnataka">Karnataka</a> Chief Minister <a href="/search?query=HD Kumaraswamy">HD Kumaraswamy</a> pleaded before the public here not to believe Prime Minister Narendra Modi's "colourful words." <br />I'm pleading with you, don't believe the Prime Ministers colourful words, Kumaraswamy said at a rally here. Why should we have enmity with neighbouring countries? Two years ago, a military officer had told me the Prime Minister will make stories before elections to get votes. They do not ask for votes on the basis of development, he added.<br />Earlier in the day, Kumaraswamy had alleged that he was being harassed by Election Commission and Income Tax department officials.<br />The JD(S) leader claimed that his car was searched at least 13 to 14 times in the past two days, adding that on Thursday, his car was checked twice within a distance of 60 kilometres. <br />Seven phase elections in the country will begin on April 11 and go on till May 19. Counting of votes will be done on May 23.<br /><a href="/search?query=Karnataka">Karnataka</a> will go to polls in two phases - on April 18 and 23. (ANI)<br /></p>
