Prime minister Narendra Modi in Karnataka ahead of elections
Prime minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi are in Karnataka on Thursday as a part of their election campaigns in the state ahead of the May 12 assembly election.
Modi began his second round of campaigning in poll-bound Karnataka on Thursday with a rally in Kalaburagi.
Here’s what Modi said-
This election will decide the future of Karnataka. It is about security of women, the development of farmers. Do not assume this is only about electing MLAs, it is much more than that: PM Narendra Modi in Kalaburagi
Congress doesn’t respect the sacrifices of our soldiers. When our soldiers carried out surgical strikes, the Congress party questioned them. They kept on asking proof of the strikes from me: PM Modi in Kalaburagi
Karnataka is synonymous with valour. But, how did the Congress Govts treat Field Marshall Cariappa and General Thimayya? History is proof of that. In 1948 after defeating Pakistan, General Thimayya was insulted by PM Nehru and Defence Minister Krishna Menon: PM Modi
After surgical strikes, one of Congress’s senior leaders called our current Army Chief a ‘Gunda’
During last elections, Congress promised they will make Mallikarjun Kharge Ji the Chief Minister. They misled the Dalit community.This is typically how Congress plays politics
I would like to ask the Congress people who carried out a candle march in Delhi where were your candles when a Dalit girl was tortured in Bidar
Congress would rather prefer our soldiers go with cameras and not guns! (on Surgical Strikes) But then, this is expected considering how their own senior leader behaved on stage when ‘Vande Mataram’ was being sung
