Bagalkote: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday made a blistering attack on the main opposition parties – Congress and the Janata Dal-Secular – and urged the voters to vote in favour of the ruling BJP if they want all-round development, peace and stability in the state.
Addressing a rally in Bagalkote, Shah warned if Congress comes to power in Karnataka, there will be all-time high corruption, appeasement politics, familial politics and riots in the state. The Home Minister went to attack Congress by saying that the main opposition party is fighting elections depending on the leaders who have joined Congress from the BJP recently, which shows there is bankruptcy in the party and a lack of leadership.
Shah also explained to voters that voting for JD(S) will mean casting their votes to Congress. “If you don’t want your vote to go to Congress, then vote for BJP for the overall development of Karnataka,” Shah said adding, “On one hand there is BJP’s double-engine govt and, on the other, there’s reverse gear govt of Congress.”
“This Assembly election is not just to choose an MLA but to hand over the future of the state into the hands of PM Modi. It is an election to make Karnataka a developed state and also bring political stability here,” the Union Home Minister said in Karnataka’s Bagalkote.
