Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged the people of Karnataka not to waste their votes on the JD(S) and said that JD(S) is only capable of grabbing third position.
“No matter what political pundits say, JD(S) can only limp to third position. It will not form the government on its own. It cannot remove the Congress. Such being the case, should the wise voters of Karnataka waste their valuable vote on JD(S)?” Modi told a well-attended rally at Kengeri, on the outskirts of Bengaluru on Thursday.
Kengeri is considered the gateway to the Vokkaliga heartland of Ramanagara and Mandya, the JD(S) bastion. Modi alleged that JD(S) has joined hands with communal forces and supporters of terrorism to win elections. “By doing so, it has not done any good to the people of Karnataka,” he added.
“It is the Congress which is spreading the word about hung assembly. It means BJP is going to win and the enthusiasm of the people also suggests the same,” Modi said.
