Prime Minister Narendra Modi today set out on the agenda to address Bhartiya Janta Party Karnataka candidates. In a live address, PM Modi entertained some of the BJP candidates' queries and talked on a range of topics concerning the state of Karnataka. 

"Parties fear discussions on development as it is measurable," PM Modi noted. 

Development is the only agenda of the BJP, the Prime Minister noted further adding that development is not an issue for the ones who deal in caste-based politics, "they give a lollipop of fake promises to a particular community and then do same with another community in next elections". 


He went on to note that for Karnataka, the party has the agenda of development that is fast paced and all rounded.


The Prime Minister stated that the BJP will form a government in Karnataka with a majority, "there is one aspect on which they can never defeat us, that is our power as a party and the power of the party's youth force," he noted.

PM Modi also stressed the significance of empowering the poor.

He lashed out at the Congress alleging that the party spread lies and by hiring foreign agencies, "We need to purify the culture by removing Congress," he stated. 


Rahul Gandhi-led Congress and the Bhartiya Janta Party are currently in full swing to lure the voters for the upcoming Karnataka assembly elections.

The polls to the 224-member Karnataka Assembly will be held on May 12. The southern state is slated to witness a three-corner contest involving the ruling Congress, the BJP and the H D Deve Gowda-led JD(S). The result of the polls will be announced on May 15.
