PM Modi promises Netravati-Hemavathi rivers linking project for eight districts' farmers

PM Modi promises Netravati-Hemavathi rivers linking project for eight districts' farmers

As a part of the third leg of his campaigning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to address four public rallies in poll-bound Karnataka on Saturday.

With just a week left for the Karnataka Assembly polls, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) intensified its campaign across the state.

Earlier on Friday, BJP's Chief Ministerial candidate B.S.Yedyurappa released the BJP manifesto in Bengaluru. He said that a talented pool of youngsters in Karnataka made this city the computer capital, but in the last five years, the Congress government turned Bengaluru into a "crime capital". Congress has alleged that eight "Reddy Gang" members have been given tickets for the assembly elections.

The manifesto said the Congress, if voted to power, would create an "agricultural corridor" in the state with its 10 different agro-climatic zones and other natural advantages, offering vast opportunities for high growth in agriculture and allied sectors. In his election rally here on Thursday, Mr. Modi continued his tirade against the Siddaramaiah government by saying that it had pushed the people of Karnataka into debt, while the coffers of the corrupt were filled. But after the valour, General Thimayya who saved Kashmir was repeatedly insulted by the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the then defence minister V.K. Krishna Menon because of which General Thimayya had to resign from his post.

Trump asks African nations to support 2026 World Cup bid
Last week Trump issued a veiled threat against nations that may align in voting blocs against the North American bid. The North American bid boasts large stadiums and excellent infrastructure but is no certainty to win the June vote.

He pointed out that the Congress and the JD (S) have been in an alliance as they were ruling the BBMP in Bengaluru.

Apart from addressing rallies, Amit Shah is likely to hold strategy meetings with local Varuna leaders and ask them to stay united and fight for the victory of the party candidate. A Congress-JD (S) alliance cannot be ruled out either but Siddaramaiah could become the fall guy as Gowda has reserved his harshest words for his former protege.

The Congress leader said even Modi acknowledged Karnataka's employment record which would improve further under the party government. Both the Congress and the BJP are vying for their votes. It promises farm loan waiver, setting up of a special cell in Chief Minister Office to look after farming issues, it also promises to strengthen the Lokayuktha and women police force. "If there is one leader who can transform the lives of the farmers, it is farmer leader Yeddyurappa", said Modi.

The Siddaramaiah government launched Pink Hoysala vehicles a year ago which patrol the streets of the state capital to ensure safety of women and children.
