Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa on Monday claimed 70 per cent of the people of the country wants Narendra Modi to not only complete the current term but also want him as the Prime Minister for the
next term.

He also called Modi “iron leader” for abrogation of Article 370 that terminated special status to Jammu and

He said Modi has successfully completed one year of the second term and the country is surging ahead in the path
of progress under his “exceptional and far-sighted leadership.”

“The Prime Minister is leading the country forward towards development with his Sab Ka Saath, Sab Ka Vikas, Sab
Ka Vishwas principle and inclusive schemes,” he said, adding that Modi is spearheading the cause of building a “strong and self-reliant Bharath.”

Speaking to reporters in the backdrop of the one year of the Modi government’s second term in office, the chief minister said Modi is recognised as an exceptional leader not only in India, but also at the global level, through his mantra – Vasudaiva Kutumbakam.

He listed the key decisions of the BJP-led central government such as banning the practice of triple talaq among
Muslims, the Vande Bharath Mission, the Citizenship Amendment Act, one country-one ration card scheme, new Motor Vehicle Act, besides also “finding solution to Ram Mandir issue”, among others.

Yediyurappa said Modi’s decision has played a decisive role in dealing with the COVID-19 situation in India. He has competently handled a huge challenge of combating the coronavirus in a country with a population of
130 crore.

“He implemented the most stringent lockdown restrictions in the world to control the spread of COVID-19
and achieved remarkable success,” he said and lauded the Rs 20 lakh crore package that has been announced to revive the economy amid the pandemic.

“Modiji also supported the State during the devastating floods last year…..the state government is
determined to develop Karnataka deriving inspiration from our Prime Minister’s efficiency.”

Responding to a question about the state’s share of the money being deducted by the Centre despite a BJP government being in power at both levels, the Chief Minister said both state and central governments are facing financial problems. “I have got 100 per cent confidence in the coming days, he (PM) is going to release more money to Karnataka,” Yediyurappa added.
