PM Modi  in Karnataka, says Congress is full of negativity, made false promises to farmers

BIDAR: Salmming at Congress in poll-bound Karnataka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today, April 29, said that the grand old party want of capability to understand poverty and is "full of negativity", while also accusing it of doing politics on development.

In separate campaigns for the Karnataka Assembly, the Prime Minister charged Congress and Janata Dal (Secular) with harboring "hatred" for farmers and putting obstacles in the way of the central agriculture program's implementation.

"The struggles and suffering of the poor will never be understood by Congress. The pace of these houses was restrained by Congress. They are unaware of poverty. Congress is a negative political party that practices politics in the name of progress. In his speech to an electoral rally here, Prime Minister Modi claimed that the Congress had only given the farmers and residents of Karnataka false promises.

"There was a Congress-JDS government in place here when we first launched this programme, Kisan Samman Nidhi. However, they made it difficult to send the list of the recipients' farmers. Can you really fathom the kind of animosity Congress and JDS have for farmers? No money had to be spent by the state government. From Delhi, we were sending money. They had an issue since the money was going straight to the farmers' bank accounts, he said.

The Prime Minister added that although Congress has pledged to cancel farmer loan payments in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, where it is currently in power, those farmers are still waiting for those promises to be delivered.

"Nearly 7 lakh farmers benefited from the Rs 6,000 provided by the Centre and the Rs 4,000 more provided by the state's BJP government. Before each election, the Congress government used to defraud farmers by making fictitious debt forgiveness pledges. In spite of their promises, the farmers in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan have not received any funds in their accounts. Loan waivers were never advantageous to them. This, he said, "is the real face of Congress. PM Modi added that the Karnataka elections will determine the state's role in India's progress towards becoming a developed country.

"The goal of this election is to elevate Karnataka to the position of nation's top state. The outcome of this election will determine Karnataka's contribution to India's development. When every area of Karnataka is developed, India will be developed, he said.

"When compared to the Congress administration, foreign investment has surged in the state by three times. A double benefit or double speed is what double-engine government means. Small projects used to take years to finish in Karnataka before there was a double-engine government, he said.

Karnataka will hold Assembly elections on May 10 and the results will be tallied on May 13.
