PM NARENDRA MODI WOOS FARMERS IN POLL-BOUND KARNATAKA, ATTACKS CONGRESS
Davangere: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday wooed thousands of farmers at a massive BJP rally in poll-bound Karnataka by promising them “acche din” (good days) if his party is voted to power in the upcoming assembly polls and attacked the ruling Congress government for failing to serve the people.
“I appeal to you all to bless the BJP to form the next government under the leadership of B.S. Yeddyurappa who is a farmer’s son, by voting for the party in the upcoming assembly election,” said Modi at the rally in this textile town, about 260 km northwest of Bengaluru.
The rally also marked the 75th birthday of the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate Yeddyurappa, who is also the party’s state president and Lok Sabha member from Shivamogga, about 300 km northwest of Bengaluru.
