'Women first' is the mantra of govt and BJP, says PM Modi

Kalaburagi: Appealing to regional pride and painting the Congress as a "has been" party, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday appealed to the people of Karnataka to vote for the BJP "for a better future for their youth, farmers and women".

"Personal attacks won't win the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) any votes".

In the wake of the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections, if netas (politicians) at public rallies are at their "devilish" best throwing muck at each other, social media accounts of both the BJP and Congress are one step ahead.

Rahul also recalled the government's refusal to give the promised "MSP+50% profit" to farmers while grading thePrime Minister. "He has failed in addressing all three", Rahul said in an interview to a Karnataka daily.

He said that the Congress-led UPA government had provided 1100% more funds for Karnataka cities compared to the Modi government.

Congress leaders, including Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Rajeev Shukla and Pramod Tiwari, submitted a memorandum to Chief Election Commissioner Om Prakash Rawat.

"The Karnataka BJP has made false, baseless, unfounded and unsubstantiated allegations using cutouts, shadow images and likeness of Rahul Gandhi and Siddaramaiah being fully aware that the Model Code was in force", it added.

In his address PM Modi asserted that "Able women have been given important portfolios in our Cabinet", mentioning the achievements of EMA Sushma Swaraj and Defence minister Niramla Sitharaman.

Participating in "Meet the Press" organised by the Bangalore Press Club and Bangalore Reporters Guild in Bengaluru yesterday, Deve Gowda said it was the practice of Modi to do his homework well before visiting a State and accordingly he played the card.

PM said "These two pictures are proof of that ".

The momentum in the past 15 days is clearly in favour of the BJP which is heading for a clear majority in the May 12 assembly polls, party Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrasekhar claimed today. "I want to ask you whether we need such a party?", Mr Modi asked the people, receiving a loud "No, No" in response from the crowd.
