Congress takes potshots at Modi over 'TOP' speech

“Will Rahul Gandhi be silent?” BJP on Congress leader's Twitter Jab at PM

Exhorting the voters to ensure a "Congress-Mukt" Karnataka, the PM said the Congress Government in the State had failed to reach the benefits to the aam aadmi. "If corruption has to end, the state has to be made Congress-free", he said.

The entire BJP leadership of Karnataka from its leader Yediyurappa, Jagadhish Shetter, Union Parliamentary minister Ananth Kumar to the newly inducted former External Affairs Minister SM Krishna were all on the stage. "It is collected from states", Siddaramaiah said.

Reacting sharply to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's statement saying countdown has begun for Congress, he said "countdown for the Prime Minister has begun not for his government".

During his rally in Bengaluru, PM Modi undermined the current rule of Congress in Karnataka saying the condition of the state is abysmal, it's full of corruption and went on to say that if people of Karnataka want development then they need to dump Congress. Once we comes to power in the state, the implementation of developmental projects will start at faster mode, in co ordination with the Centre.

"In Karnataka, there is "ease of doing murder"," Modi said in Bengaluru on Sunday, in an apparent reference to the spate of murders that have taken place in recent months in coastal Karnataka and Bengaluru among other places.

"Even farmers producing fruits and vegetables are important to us. But nobody should make personal comments", Mr Siddaramaiah said. "Under Jan Dhan Yojana, 1.16 crore accounts were opened in Karnataka, opening doors of banking for the poor and middle class. Did you know that your corrupt CM candidate Yeddyurappa had shot farmers when they were protesting for lack of Fertilizer?", it said in a Twitter post. "It is a big disrespect to the chair of the prime minister".

Several Hindu activists were murdered in the state which was a threat to democracy, the Prime Minister said.

He was responding to a question on the lack of job creation in India in the last four years. "Our right", the Chief Minister said.

Yeddyurappa attacked Siddaramaiah and tweeted that the State had become "No.1 in corruption" under the Congress and has faced over 3,000 farmer deaths, collapse of law and order.

Going beyond issues pertaining to Karnataka, Siddaramaiah has challenged Prime Minister Modi to act on issues plaguing the BJP at a national level.
