Karnataka Assembly Election: PM Modi takes swipe at Siddaramaiah over seeking votes in name of Congress leader’s retirement from politics

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a swipe at former Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah saying that the Congress leader was seeking votes in the name of his retirement from active politics.

Modi said the people of Karnataka will not choose a “tired and defeated” Congress but a BJP teeming with enthusiasm. “A Congress leader is seeking votes in the name of their retirement. His biggest poll plank is: ‘This is my last election. Give me a chance. What a pathetic state they have reached!” Modi said in an election rally in the district headquarters town of Vijayapura.

The Prime Minister’s jibe was aimed at 75-year-old Siddaramaiah who recently announced that this will be his last election and he would not contest polls anymore. “I know that the people of Karnataka will not choose a tired and defeated Congress but the BJP which is bubbling with enthusiasm,” Modi added.

He said there is one slogan of ‘Ee Baariya Nirdhara, Bahumatada BJPiya Sarkara’ (This time the decision, a BJP government with majority) echoing from every corner of Karnataka.
