Prime Minister Narendra Modi here on Saturday declared that the BJP, if voted to power will link the Netravathi river with Hemavathi which will help the farmers in eight middle and south Karnataka districts of the state. Shah is expected to boost the morale of party workers who are upset by the Party High Command that at the last moment denied Varuna ticket to BJP State President B.S. Yeddyurappa's son B.Y. Vijayendra. BJP values JD (S)'s potential to defeat Congress in southern Karnataka and eat into Congress votes elsewhere.
He alleged the Congress was responsible for the backwardness of Tumakuru.
The PM also mocked Congress leaders for claiming to be pro-farmer. "They pretend to fight, but in Bengaluru, the JD (S) supported a Congress mayor", Modi said at an election rally in Tumakuru.
The Prime Minister said despite Deve Gowda opposing him, when he came to Karnataka for campaigning during the Lok Sabha elections, he said the JD (S) leader should live for 100 years and serve the society.
Shah criticised Congress president Rahul Gandhi for using the word "Hindu terror" in 2014 and maligning the name of the country and Hindu community internationally.
He then tore into the Congress, the JD (S) for not doing anything for farmers.
Continuing his tirade against the PM, Siddaramaiah asked him to talk about something that was relevant to the people of Karnataka. While addressing a rally, Gandhi said that he will question the government because the land of tribal communities and farmers is being forcefully acquired.
Data provided by the Chief Electoral Office in Karnataka has indicated that the BJP will contest all 224 seats, while the Congress will contest 222 seats.
The cut and thrust has made the battle for control of Ballari a prestige issue for both the Congress and BJP.
He also accused the top Congress leadership of auctioning tickets, party positions and even the chief minister's post. If he would know of that promise he would not be misleading the people, says Modi. "The BJP government that will come to power and the BJP government in Delhi that is committed to the cause of farmers will work together to bring a change", he said.
