Our agenda is to make Karnataka No. 1 state in the country : PM Modi

| Published on:

Continuing his election campaigning spree, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on 03 May, 2023 addressed mega public meetings in Mudbidri, Ankola and Baihongal in Karnataka. “May 10th, the day of the polls, is fast approaching. The BJP is determined to make Karnataka the top state and BJP’s resolve is to make Karnataka a manufacturing super power. This is our roadmap for the coming years,” PM Shri Modi said.

Shri Modi said, “The BJP aims to make Karnataka the leading state in terms of development, but the Congress has different intentions and desires to turn Karnataka into an ATM for their royal family.” PM Modi accused the Congress of taking a commission of 85% in every scheme, which he believes will set the state back by decades. Therefore, he urged the people of Karnataka to be cautious when considering the Congress.

‘Reverse Gear Congress’

Referring the grand old party as the ‘Reverse Gear Congress’, PM said, “Congress comes to the rescue of those who are arrested for conspiring to spread terror in Karnataka. Not only this, Reverse Gear Congress not only withdraws the cases registered against such anti-national people but also releases them.” He further stated that various sections of society unite to oppose such anti-national individuals, but the Reverse Gear Congress takes electoral help from them and runs in the opposite direction.

Congress is defaming the country

“Today, the whole world is paying respect to democracy and development in India. But the Reverse Gear Congress is defaming the country by roaming around the world. Karnataka which is moving on the path of peace and progress would never want someone to come and take it in reverse gear,” he added.

The BJP introduced the PM Matsya Sampada Yojana, the first-ever scheme for the welfare of the fishermen and the fisheries sector. Additionally, under the leadership of Yeddyurappa Ji and Bommai Ji, the Matsya Siri scheme has been implemented.”


Addressing the rally in Mudbidri, PM Shri Narendra Modi reiterated, “The government implemented significant reforms in the space sector, allowing private

PM’s grand Roadshow in Bengaluru

We want to make Karnataka the number 1 state : PM

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi held two huge successive roadshows in Bengaluru, Karnataka on 06th & 07th May 2023. Earlier, a mega eight-hour roadshow was planned but keeping the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in mind the BJP decided to split it into two massive roadshows– 26 km on 06 May and another 10 km on a different route, on 07 May, to avoid inconvenience to the public.

The roadshow began with PM Shri Narendra Modi’s floral tributes to the statue of Kempegowda (founder of Bengaluru). People and Karyakartas gathered in huge numbers carrying musical instruments, including drums, to get a glimpse of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. Supporters lined up on both sides of the road and showered flower petals on the PM, who was seen enthusiastically greeting the public.

The PM, after his roadshow said he would cherish the affection shown by the people of the city for his entire life. “If only words could describe what I just saw in Bengaluru! I bow to the people of this vibrant city for showering me with affection that I will cherish for my entire life,” the PM had tweeted after the


The PM said, “We want to make Karnataka the number 1 state in investment, industry and innovation. We want to make Karnataka the number 1 in education, employment and entrepreneurship”.

The Prime Minister said the government is working to empower the farmers with a ‘Beej Se Bazaar Tak’ vision. Through new irrigation projects, and expansion of storage facilities. Increasing ethanol blending, usage of nano urea, and modern technology such as drones, the BJP is committed to making Karnataka the number one in agriculture.

He talked about the government establishing trade agreements with UAE and Australia, where many people from Karnataka reside. Also, he remarked that Karnataka is currently empowering India’s startup revolution, enabling young individuals from humble backgrounds to become creators of both wealth and value. The Prime Minister called upon the people of Karnataka to help India in achieving the status of the world’s third-largest economy in the years to come.


During his second rally in Ankola, Shri 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. Shri Modi said that Congress always failed to fulfil promises and betrayed public and said that BJP fulfilled all the guarantees. He also referred to Congress as a ‘85% commission government’ through his speech.

Pointing to the Congress’ ‘Corruption First’ policy, the PM stated, Congress has developed such a system in the country that its coffers are always full of black money. And for this, the Congress prepared crores of people on paper, who were never born. Today I also want to inform the country and the people of Karnataka about this ‘fake name scam’ of the Congress. The people of Karnataka have also suffered a lot in this fake name scam.”
