Corrupt '10% sarkar' ruling Karnataka, says Modi

Modi said development could only be expedited if "there's a BJP government both in the Centre and in Karnataka".

In a stinging attack on the Siddaramaiah government, Modi accused it of setting new records in corruption. Asking the BJP to contest the elections in the state with "dignity" on the "basis of facts", he said that the allegations must be substantiated with facts.

The government has made way for the builders' mafia, sand mafia and other corrupt actions, he said. Once we comes to power in the state, the implementation of developmental projects will start at faster mode, in co ordination with the Centre.

Modi also referred to the spate of killings of BJP and Hindu activists, an issue the party has brought to the focal point of its discourse, saying, "ease of doing murders" was being discussed in the state while his government talked about ease of doing business. We have launched "Operation Green" in the interest of these farmers. "But nobody should make personal comments", Mr Siddaramaiah said.

The students staged this unique protest near Mehkri Circle, a few metres away from Palace Ground where PM Modi was addressing the rally, reported PTI.

Israel to legalize settlement outpost deep in West Bank
Israel's Cabinet approved a proposal that begins the process of legalizing the Gilad Farm outpost in the northern West Bank. Havat Gilad resident Rabbi Raziel Shevach, 35, was murdered on January 9 in a terror attack near his hometown.

They wowed to make Karnataka "Congress Mukth" (free of Congress) in the upcoming elections. "There is nothing more shameful than the Prime Minister of 1.3 billion people stooping to the level of Yeddyurappa".

Siddaramaiah had also written many letters to the Prime Minister to intervene in the issue through an out-of-court settlement as the inter-state issue is now before the Supreme Court and the Mahadayi Water Dispute Tribunal. "The people of Karnataka have chose to keep the Congress in power". "Such politically motivated statements are being made because Siddaramaiah is desperate as he knows he will lose", said Union minister DV Sadananda Gowda.

Yeddyurappa attacked Siddaramaiah and tweeted that the State had become "No.1 in corruption" under the Congress and has faced over 3,000 farmer deaths, collapse of law and order.

Karnataka BJP president B.S. Yeddyurappa carried out a 75-day (extended to 84 days) "Parivarthana Yatra" across all 224 constituencies of the state to mobilize support and avoid a repeat of its 2013 poll debacle where it was reduced to 40 seats from 110 in 2008. "BJP-ruled states Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra are way ahead", he said. "Yet, he is talking about Karnataka as a hotbed of crime when we don't even figure in the top 10 of the NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau), which is their own (central) figures", Reddy said.
