Vote BJP for a better future: PM Narendra Modi

For the first time since independence there is a new hope in the BJP.

Kalaburagi: Appealing to regional pride and painting the Congress as a “has been” party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday appealed to the people of Karnataka to vote for the BJP “for a better future for their youth, farmers and women.”

“You have seen how the Congress has been defeated in all four corners of the country. For the first time since independence there is a new hope in the BJP. This poll in Karnataka is not merely about which party will come to power and which will not, but about a better future for Karnataka. We have seen the state being ruined for five years and will put a stop to it,” he declared, addressing a public meeting at the NV Grounds here.

Assuring that his government would fully back a new BJP government in the state, he went on to recall the contribution of Sardar Vallabhai Patel to the liberation of the Hyderabad Karnataka region from the Nizam’s “tyrannical” rule. “But the Congress has insulted Sardar Patel because it wants to eulogise only one family.

One Congress leader even went to the extent of calling our current Army chief a goonda. I want to ask you whether we need such a party?”, Mr Modi asked the people, receiving a loud “No, No” in response from the crowd.

The Prime Minister also claimed that two famous generals from Karnataka Field Marshal K M Cariappa and General Thimayya were insulted by the Nehru family.

Applauding the famers of Kalaburagi for growing high quality tur dal, he pulled up the state government for being insensitive to their needs and sitting on the Swaminathan Commission report recommending an increase in their minimum support price.

On the other hand, the BJP government had done everything to implement it, he added. Also, describing state BJP chief , B S Yeddyurappa as devoted to the welfare of farmers, Mr Modi assured that his government would give them all support.
