'From tech to tanker city': PM Modi slams Karnataka's Congress govt on Bengaluru water crisis

| @indiablooms | 20 Apr 2024, 09:33 pm

Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday slammed the Karnataka government for not resolving challenges in Bengaluru's infrastructure, adding that the mismanagement by the Congress party is responsible for the current crisis.

Addressing a rally in Bengaluru, he highlighted the severe water shortage in certain areas of the city, which has resulted in water rationing and penalties for non-essential water usage.

"The Congress government in Karnataka has transformed the tech city into a tanker city, and left it in the hands of tanker mafia," he said.

" The Congress party is against the private sector, taxpayers, and wealth creators. While the opposition bloc concentrates on criticizing Modi, my priority remains India's development and enhancing its global reputation," he said.

Taking a dig at the opposition alliance, Modi said the leaders of the INDIA bloc seem to be repeating tired rhetoric, akin to a worn-out tape recorder.

In contrast, Modi and his allies are presenting their track record.

“That's precisely why we're here in Bengaluru, seeking your blessings,” he stated.

In the upcoming elections, BJP Members of Parliament Tejasvi Surya and PC Mohan are contesting from Bangalore South and Central constituencies, respectively.

Union Minister Shobha Karandlaje is the candidate from Bangalore North.

In Bangalore Rural, cardiologist CN Manjunath, who is also former Prime Minister Deve Gowda's son-in-law, is contesting on a BJP ticket as part of an arrangement with alliance partner Janata Dal (Secular), or JD(S).

Prime Minister Modi conducted large-scale rallies in Kalaburagi and Shivamogga last month.

On April 14, he addressed a rally in Mysuru, where he shared the stage with Gowda.

Later, he held a roadshow in the coastal town of Mangaluru.

Voting in Karnataka is scheduled to take place in two phases, with the first phase on April 26 and the second phase on May 7.
