At the Karnataka campaign rally, PM Modi called the Congress the “Sultan of tukde, tukde gang.”

Prime Minister Narendra Modi blasted the Congress, branding it the sultan of the tukde-tukde gang and the voice of divisive forces. At the first Vijay Sankalp Yatra, which was organized in conjunction with the BJP and its partner JDS, he presented his progress report and the country’s goal and said that Congress leaders must have their superiors’ approval before chanting nationalistic chants.

He was giving a speech at a sizable public gathering at Maharaja’s College Grounds with the intention of mobilizing support for the BJP and JD(S) candidates running for the Lok Sabha seats of Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Mandya, and Hassan.

He said that Congress was impeding development, playing politics of division, adopting policies of appeasement, and damaging the nation’s reputation overseas.

“You’ve seen the country’s advancement. However, the Congress uses different terminology and backs contentious figures. It collaborates with the political arm of forces that cause division. “Will you entrust such hands with the reins of power?” he posed to the electorate.

Congress backs divisive forces, claims Modi

He attacked Congress, claiming that the opposing party is opposed to Sanatan Dharma, for not attending the opening of the Ram temple, which satisfied the people’s 500-year-old desire.

He said that appeasement politics was being used by Congress and its friends, as well as hurting and insulting people’s feelings. He took aim at Mallikarajun Kharge, the president of the Congress, for pushing for the repeal of Article 370.

He described the Sankalp Patra, the BJP’s manifesto, as a road plan full with commitments meant to improve every Indian’s quality of life. He declared his commitment to constructing three crore new dwellings for the impoverished, giving free rations to the poor, treating elderly persons for free under the Ayushman plan, and enabling three crore women to become “lakhpatis.”

In order to increase tourism and generate jobs, he emphasized the BJP’s commitment to supporting regional languages, protecting historical monuments, and adding Mysuru, Hampi, and Badami to the list of World Heritage monuments.

When he gave his 10-year progress report, he emphasized the building of national roads, the success of the Mysuru-Bengaluru Expressway, the Jal Jeevan Mission, which provides clean water to thousands of communities, free rations for four crore people, and a housing program that helps four and a half lakh households.

“The Karnataka Congress government is plundering and acting as a party cash machine.” The public coffers are bare. Programs for welfare and development are being terminated. Free electricity was promised to farmers, but irrigation pumpsets are not receiving any power. Kissan Samman has been withdrawn by the government. Water is scarce in Bengaluru, which has given rise to an illicit market for water tankers. “Electoral warfare is being waged with hundreds of crores of black money,” he said.

In an impressive display of power by the NDA, JD(S) patriarch and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda was one among the people who shared the dais with Modi.

September of last year marked the JD(S)’s NDA membership.

The JD(S) is running in three seats, including the neighboring Mandya constituency, whereas the BJP is vying in 25 of the 28 total Karnataka seats.

“In Karnataka, NDA has the guidance of senior leaders like H D Deve Gowda and (BJP leader B S) Yediyurappa and cooperation of (JD(S) leader) H D Kumaraswamy,” Modi said.

He inquired as to whether it is necessary to chant “Bharat Mata ki Jai,” posing the question, “Will the nation, Karnataka, Mysuru, forgive such a Congress? He hesitated to utter “Bharat Mata ki Jai” after first opposing “Vande Mataram.” This marks the pinnacle of Congress’s demise.”

Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar, a descendant of the former Mysuru royal dynasty, is the BJP’s contender in the next Lok Sabha elections.

Former chief minister and JD(S) leader Kumaraswamy, the son of Deve Gowda, is running from Mandya.

Given that it is the only state in South India where the BJP has retained power, Karnataka is crucial to the party.

The BJP won 25 seats in the 2019 general elections, and the party-backed independent also won.

The Congress and JD(S), who had battled together in the elections before, each only won one seat.

The Prime Minister accused the Congress of playing with fire in order to gain power, claiming that Congress officials traveling overseas are not giving India any chance to present a negative image.

“The nation responds to its adversaries appropriately, but Congress wants proof that the army carried out “surgical attacks.” He said, “Congress is collaborating with a political arm of a prohibited organization that engages in terrorism.”

Alleging that attempts are underway to halt fairs and festivals, Modi said that the nation is engaged in a “open game” of appeasement.

The PM said, “Until there is Modi, and he has your blessings, these forces of hate will never be successful.” He was alleging that the INDIA alliance members wanted to “end Sanatan” and “destroy Hindu Dharma’s Shakti”. Modi has promised to do this.”

Karnataka will hold elections in two stages. While the southern portion of the state will hold polling for 14 Lok Sabha segments on April 26, the northern areas will have a second round of voting on May 7.

Declaring that the 2024 Lok Sabha elections would determine the fate of “Viksit Bharat,” or developed Bharat, for 2047, Modi said, “24/7 for 2047,” adding that he is dedicating every minute of his life to the country’s advancement.

He said that Congress has never provided an explanation for its 60 years of power because it only knows how to cause trouble and betray.

He said that Karnataka had turned into a “ATM state” for the plunder of the Congress party.

Modi referred to the BJP manifesto as the “picture of ‘New India,” highlighting its promises.

Deve Gowda praised Modi earlier at the gathering, saying that in the previous ten years, he has increased respect for India throughout the world.

In addition to criticizing the Congress and the INDIA bloc, he said, “I asked Kumaraswamy to go with Modi to save the state.”

The seasoned politician further criticized Deputy Chief Minister D K Shivakumar and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for their “misrule” and for casting Modi in a negative light.
