Congress associated with '85 per cent commission': PM Modi in Karnataka

Bengaluru: In a counter to the Congress party’s allegation against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ruled State Government of 40 per cent commission, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday accused the Congress party of availing 85 per cent corruption in its rule over the country. “It is not an allegation but the same has been accepted by the then Prime Minister of the Congress party,” he said.

Addressing the gathering in Kolar, Modi stated owing to 85 per cent indulgence in corruption that the Congress party lost its faith of voters and the public money filled their treasury but the 9 years of BJP rule at the Centre had managed to reach 100 per cent funds from the Centre reach the State Government.

Modi said Congress party thrived in ‘corruption’ and the party cannot frame a programme without ‘corruption’ and stated 2004 to 2014, the Congress rule seized about Rs 5,000 crore worth properties of ‘corrupt’ people but under BJP since 2014, about Rs 1 lakh crore properties have been seized belonging to ‘corrupt’ people.

“I fighting corruption and Congress party cannot tolerate it and now it is taken to intimidation,” Modi said and pointed out a statement of president of All India Congress Committee (AICC) Mallikarjuna Kharge who said that ‘Modi a venomous snake’ wherein the Prime Minister said “I accept my comparison to a snake and snake adorns the neck of Lord Shiva. I see Lord Shiva in the people of the country.”

Modi said the track record of Congress party indicates that its poll guarantees went unfilled and he pointed out that the Congress party at the Centre assured to supply power connectivity to every household in 2005 but even after a decade of its rule over the country power connectivity to the people did not come true.

The Prime Minister said the BJP at the Centre provided power connectivity to about 18,000 households in its first 1,000 days of its rule over the country. “Congress gave guarantees and then cheated but the assurance was fulfilled by BJP,” Modi said.

In his speech, Modi also attacked Janata Dal Secular (JDS) and termed both Congress and JDS as being ‘hurdles’ in the way of development of Karnataka.

Modi wanted a stable government in Karnataka and stated that an unstable government hinders development works and paves way for faster corruption. He appealed to voters to save Karnataka from an ‘unstable’ government and also to make Karnataka free from clutches of corruption of both Congress and JDS.
