Mysuru: Terming the Congress government in Karnataka as a “commission” government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today attacked the Congress and said that the welfare of the people was never its priority and the state needs a government with “mission” under the BJP to ensure all-round development.
Addressing a public rally in the city, the prime minister said as long as there was a Congress government in Karnataka, the state could not progress.
Repeating his comment made earlier this month in Bengaluru, where he had said that the Siddaramaiah government in Karnataka worked for “10 per cent commission”, Modi said: “You have a choice to elect a party (BJP) which runs a government with a definite mission and reject a party (Congress) that works only for commission.”
“Karnataka does not require a ‘commission’ government but a ‘mission’ government led by the BJP which will ensure all-round progress of the state. Congress has ruined the state and people will teach them a lesson in the elections,” he said speaking at the Maharaja College ground in the city, after dedicating various railway projects.
“Every day a new scam, new corruption charges and new allegations are cropping up against their leaders and ministers or those related to government schemes. The Congress leaders spread lies and repeat them, believing that the people would believe them. But the people are wiser and they never accept such lies for long,” noted PM Modi.
