BJP is in high spirit after its President Amit Shah visited Karnataka and led rallies shouting slogans, “Abki Bar BJP Sarkar.” BJP leaders including the state chief Yeddyurrappa are confident that the Party is bound to win the state assembly elections to be held next year. Regaining power in state is the main motto of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and the party chief Amit Shah, because Karnataka is the door to the south. Once the door was opened, but misrule and corruption forced the party to meet its Waterloo and the Congress regained power.
Now the Chief Minister Siddharamaiah is fully confident to retain power in the state. On the eve of the Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee meeting to be attended by the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi in Raichur, the Chief Minister was speaking to press persons on August 12. He said the BJP President Amit Shah or Prime Minister Narendra Modi could visit Karnataka , but their campaign would have little impact on the people of Karnataka. People once had a bitter experience of the BJP rule and they would not vote for the party. The more important is the developmental work done by his government. It is a concrete work to better the life the poor, STs, SCs, BCs, and minorities, he said and added the people had full faith in his government. He said the Modi government made high-sounding claims,but none is fulfilled. The economic growth and industrial production have slowed, Siddaramaiah said and added this exposed the hollow claims of the BJP government at the centre. He said the Modi government promised to give jobs to two core youth every year, but in three years only four lakh jobs were created.
