Launching a blistering attack on Congress and JD(S), Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday claimed that the there is a ‘tacit pact’ between the two parties, adding that they are trying to make out of people of Karnataka.
“Who can deny that there is a collision between JD(S) and Cong when they are fighting in Tumukura but are in alliance in Bangalore Municipal Corporation. They should stop making fool out of people of Tumukura and Karnataka,” said PM Modi, while addressing a rally in Karnataka’’s Tumakuru.
Modi alleged that the Congress, for years, spoke about poverty eradication only to garner votes, while neglecting farmers and the poor.
“Poll surveys, political pundits…everyone is saying the JD(S) cannot defeat Congress. They cannot form government. If anyone can change the government in Karnataka, it is the BJP.
“If anyone is protecting the Congress, it is the JD(S)… Congress and JD(S) have a secret understanding…an understanding behind the curtains,” Modi, who lavished praise on JD(S) patriarch and former prime minister H D Deve Gowda only a few days ago before training his guns on him, said.
