Problem is, your actions don't match your words. He said the Congress government in Karnataka was working only for "Naamdaars" and not for "Kaamdaars".

Accusing the Congress for stalling Parliament proceedings, PM Modi said, "Congress owes an explanation to the nation on why it is not letting Parliament function". He also accused the top Congress leadership of auctioning tickets, party positions and even the chief minister's post. That is why now the Congress prefers to mislead people in the name of the Dalit community.

He also highlighted that how a Congress leader's wealth has increased manifold. "But once the son of a poor mother became the prime minister, they clammed up. now they dont talk about poverty", he said, and asked voters to "punish" the Congress for Karnatakas better future. Modi did not defeat us EVM did it.

The BJP has been criticising the Congress government on the issue, saying many Hindu activists have been killed under Congress rule in the state.

"Congress uses foul language for Yeddyurappa ji, makes baseless allegations against him ignoring his age, contribution to society and experience in politics".

"All kinds of "anap shanap" (rubbish) language is being used... Mr Yeddyurappa, insulting democracy andintimidating voters will trounce the BJP decisively", tweeted Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala.

Modi, who addressed four back to back rallies at Gadag, Tumakuru, Shivamogga and Mangaluru, said it was because of Congresss arrogance that the party, which ruled nearly the entire country, was losing ground.

"People of Karnataka need to know the tacit alliance between Congress and JD (S). While your bash is just a "jail", ' "Cost Rise" & "Pakoda" party", Siddaramaiah tweeted. "Am I right, Sir?", read the tweet.

"Nijaheli" in Kannada means tell the truth.

"Give a farewell to the Congress, which is not concerned about your welfare", said PM Modi.

"New kinds of Mafias flourishing in Karnataka under the Congress regime". Here's a primer on your candidate selection in Karnataka.

The Congress president has already up the ante against Yeddyurappa, questioning his candidature even after cases of corruption. Such was the enthusiasm among people at the rally that they did want an interpreter to translate the speech and Modi said, "So you do not want an interpreter, okay I will speak to you directly". What is the deal between these two parties,"the Prime Minister said here".

Ex CM of Karnataka and the BJP's CM candidate BS Yeddyurappa has made shocking comments in poll-bound Karnataka during the election campaign.

Karnataka goes to polls on May 12 and the results will be declared on May 15.

The official said Rs 32.54 crore in cash, out of the total seizures of Rs 152.78 crore, has been released after verification.
