Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah questions PM Modi over his leaders' corruption cases

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses a rally in Tumkur and is scheduled to address rallies at Shivmogga and Gadag on Saturday.

He added, "Why are you hiding this?" "Which Congress government, either in Delhi (when they were in power for so long) or here in Karnataka ever thought about solving the water problem in Tumakuru? Congress failed to transform the lives of the poor of India", he said, asking, "What has the Congress done in the last 70 years?"

Through the video, the Congress President asks the Prime Minister if he would speak for five minutes on questions pertaining to the BJP leaders facing corruption charges, and who have been given tickets for the upcoming polls.

This was Modi's response to the Congress chief's challenge to face him in Parliament when he alleged that the prime minister can not stand for 5 minutes in Parliament if he allowed to speak for 15 minutes. "Right now, the JD (S) is working towards saving the Congress in Karnataka".

Kharge, the leader of Congress in the Lok Sabha, had hit back at the prime minister, saying he does not need Modi's "crocodile tears" for Dalits or himself.

Karnataka goes to polls on May 12 to elect a government.

As the elections draw near in the state of Karnataka, the President of the Indian National Congress Rahul Gandhi has shared some interesting views with the Deccan Herald, a Karnataka newspaper.

He also claimed that while the BJP represented the farmers, the poor, tribals and the downtrodden, the Congress had been relying on "raja maharajas", apparently referring to Digvijay Singh and Jyotiraditya Singh, both belonging to erstwhile royal families.

Two days later, the prime minister was less charitable in his statements about the JD (S).

Though Bengaluru was admired the world over as a garden city, Modi said, the state government had turned it into a "garbage city", as it had no concern for basic amenities.

"For years, Cong kept saying "Gareeb, Gareeb, Gareeb.' However, nothing came out of this rhetoric". They should stop making fool out of people of Tumkur and Karnataka, says Modi in Tumkur.

Recently, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath called the ruling state Congress "looters" for deteriorating the living standards of the locals by filling their own pockets. Congress has alleged that eight "Reddy Gang" members have been given tickets for the assembly elections.
