Terming Karnataka's Siddaramaiah government "irresponsible and insensitive", BJP President Amit Shah said on Sunday that under the Congress, over 3,000 farmers across the state have committed suicide but the Chief Minister was busy in "politics of appeasement".

Shah, who is on a three-day visit to the state, on Sunday interacted with sugarcane farmers.

“In Siddaramaiah's tenure, about 3,781 farmers across Karnataka have committed suicide but he is busy in politics of appeasement. I have not seen a government as irresponsible and insensitive as this," he later said in a tweet.

Earlier he visited the historic Gurdwara Nanak Jhira Sahib before addressing party cadres in Gulbarga and Yadgiri district.

Lashing out at Congress supremo Rahul Gandhi, Amit Shah during his rally said:

Congress leaders keep making statements that the BJP government has waived industrial loans of thousand crores and lakh crores. I would like to make it very clear that after Modi government came, not even one businessman’s one paisa of loan has been waived. Rahul Gandhi is not speaking the truth.

Rahul Gandhi had previously asserted that the Narendra Modi-led government was responsible for frauds like that involving jeweller Nirav Modi, and for the inefficience of the authorities to nab the culprits.

Reacting to Gandhi's remark, Shah said that if Gandhi can furnish relevant records to attest to his allegations, he is ready to answer and apologise to the farmers of Karnataka.

In his speech in Kalaburagi, Karnataka, Amit Shah also promised that by 2022 "not only (in) Karnataka but every poor (person) of India will have a pucca house."
