The BJP leader also lamented that Congress leaders like Ghulam Nabi Azad and Mallikarjun Kharge had urged Muslims to vote for Congress enmasse and tried to polarise the political atmosphere in Karnataka.

The Congress has chosen to concentrate its attack on Bellary's Reddy brothers, who are accused in the iron ore mining scam, to mar Prime Minister Narendra Modi's image of an anti-corruption crusader in Karnataka. While speaking about various government schemes for farmers, PM Modi launched attack on Karnataka government saying due to the apathy of Karnataka government, farmers in the state have not got the benefit of "Fasal Bima Yojna". "For him, their (farmers') welfare is top priority".

PM Modi on Wednesday said that a farmer-sensitive government is needed in Karnataka. He said: "They have been insensitive towards the aspirations of the farmers".

Agricultural crisis is one of the biggest worries for the BJP. "It's not expected of them to accept this sin but they can at least keep quiet when our government has approved its implementation", Mr. Modi remarked. "We have submitted info on instances of Chief Electoral Officer not taking action, money being disbursed, leaders including Ghulam Nabi Azad pandering to communal card", Prasad said.


"But one family in the Congress loses its sleep whenever Sardar Patel's name crops up", he said. "They kept on asking proof of the strikes from me".

"But he was sidelined and a Chief Minister was chosen by secret voting". PM Modi will address public meetings at Bengaluru (North), Ballari and Kalaburgi. "He has to tell the people of Karnataka, is he on this side, or on that side". Almost 14 lakh farmers in the State got benefits from the PMFBY scheme, he added. Modi declared that empowering farmers is crucial and said his Government has increased minimum support price of farm produce oen and half time the cost of production. Modi said, seemingly directing the question at Rahul.

He said besides giving a fresh push to green and white revolution (agriculture and dairy farming), the Government is working on blue revolution (fish farming), sweet revolution (bee keeping), solar and organic farming revolution to help raise farm income.
