Trust Modi, Yediyurappa: Amit Shah appeals ahead of Karnataka polls

Sandur (Karnataka): Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday urged people to trust Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former chief minister BS Yeddiyurappa’s leadership and give a clear mandate to BJP in this year’s assembly election and give a corruption-free rule and make Karnataka number one state in South India in next five years.

“Trust Modiji once. Trust Yediyurappa ji once, and give a clear mandate to the BJP. We will give such a government in Karnataka which will make Karnataka free from corruption in five years and will make Karnataka number one state in South India. We will give such a government,” he said addressing Vijay Sankalp Samavesh here in the city.

Taking potshots at Mallikarjun Kharge-led Congress and JDS, Amit Shah said both parties are dynasts and cannot give good governance. “On the one hand PM Modi-led BJP is making India strong, and on the other, Rahul Gandhi is joining hands with the Tukde-Tukde Gang,” he said.

Karnataka is the only southern state where the BJP is in power, and the party is toiling hard to retain power in the state.

Amit Shah also said Congress leaders DK Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah cannot be expected to work for people’s good because they are involved in a fight against each other.

He also reiterated the charges against Siddaramaiah government for withdrawing at least 1700 cases against PFI and lauded PM Modi for banning the outfit for terrorist activities.

The home minister also flayed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for his campaign against withdrawal of special status to Jammu and Kashmir and statements about consequences of such an action.

“Rahul Gandhi claimed, on abrogation of Article 370, that it could lead to a bloodbath. However, no one dared to even pelt a stone,” he said.
