People won't forgive Modi: Surjewal

Mangaluru: BJP's only mission in this election was to 'backstab Karnataka', said Congress communications in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala, hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, May 6th.

Surjewala addressed a press meet here and said, "During the 2014 general elections Prime Minister Modi came to Mangaluru and promised several things, but when he came to Mangaluru on May 5 he had zero to deliver on the promises he had made to Karnataka. He did not speak about a single promise that he had made to Mangalureans and Kannadigas. This shows his character."

He reffered to a Hindi newspaper clipping where Modi had said 'election promises are meaningless and not to take them seriously', he said, "Modi considers election promises as use and throw jumlas. Last general election people were chanting 'Har Har Modi Ghar Ghar Modi', but now it is 'bye bye Modi' considering the manner and fashion of his acting. Congress-ruled Karnataka in the last five year has seen conspiratorial discrimination in allocation of funds for development by the Modi government. It is BJP's DNA led by Modi."

"They (BJP) looted and plundered state's resources in the 35,000 crore illegal iron ore mining scam. Modi's puppet CBI is now trying to close six out of 9 cases. After being voted out in 2013, they are attempting to seize the rights of Kannadigas by denying Rs 22,497 crore less in the 15th Finance Commission. The Yeddy-Reddy gang of Karnataka's most wanted is making a surreptitious attempt to usurp power in these elections," Surjewala observed.

"The inherently partisan practice of the Modi government in denying Karnataka its share is proved. This is to deliberately delay Karnataka's infrastructural projects. Failing Karnataka's farmers, no central aid for urban development, neglecting education and healthcare of Kannadigas, betraying the Dalits and Adivasis of Karnataka, erasing Karnataka from Swadesh Darshan Yojana of tourism ministry, stalling railway projects for Karnataka - people of Karnataka shall never forget and forgive Modi for his utter betrayal,” he said.

"There is a difference between dialogue and delivery of the Prime Minister. BJP has become a party that backstabs Karnataka, and that seems to be their only mission. Denial of rightful due of Kannadigas has become the DNA of Modi - Yeddy - Reddy gang. People need to give befitting reply. BJP stands for Backstabbing Janatha Party," he added.
