As the polling dates for the Karnataka elections draws closer, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is mounting his attack on the ruling Congress and party president Rahul Gandhi.

In the state for a final round of campaigning, Modi kickstarted his tour with three back-to-back rallies. He retorted Rahul Gandhi’s “challenge” to a debate in Parliament by challenging the Congress president to speak on Karnataka’s development without looking at a paper.

Recently Rahul Gandhi challenged that I won’t stand a chance if he speaks in the Parliament for 15 minutes. The fact that Rahul will speak for 15 minutes is a big achievement. I challenge him to speak for 15 minutes without reading from any paper on the achievements of the Congress government instead. He is free to speak in Hindi, English or his mother’s mother-tongue.
Narendra Modi, Prime Minister

Blaming the Congress for not appreciating the hardwork of labourers who made electrification of all Indian villages possible, Modi said that it is futile to expect “namdaar” Congress leaders to appreciate hardworking ‘kaamdaars’ such as BJP leaders.

Attacking the state government for lawlessness, Narendra Modi has appealed to the citizens of Karnataka to vote out the ‘dishonest and corrupt’ Congress government in the upcoming polls.

Modi also accused Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of running between two constituencies and making a political scapegoat out of his son.

In the last two years, more than two dozen BJP workers have been murdered. Their only fault that their views differed from yours (the Congress government). Their only fault that they fought for the rights of the people of Karnataka. Congress government is not interested in ‘ease of doing business’. Instead, the Congress government has started the culture of ‘ease of doing murder’. 
Narendra Modi, Prime Minister
