"You have to remain committed in order to root out Siddaramaiah's corrupt government".
"If Siddaramaiah thinks politics of appeasement will be successful, he's wrong".
"As party president, I would like to assure you. let this Siddaramaiah government try to protect (killers) however much they want". Based on what Shah has said one can only hope BJP isn't g=counting his chickens before they have hatched.
In this context, he referred to the recent incident involving Mohammed Nalapad Haris, son of a Congress MLA and himself a party leader, who triggered outrage by assaulting a man in a pub.
While the BJP is exclusively concentrating on the development agenda, the Congress, he alleged, is indulging in politics of appeasement thereby bringing development to a standstill.
The BJP has been targeting the Siddaramaiah government consistently over a series of killings of Hindu activists by alleged "Jehadi forces", and accused it of adopting a "soft approach" towards them as part of the Congress' "vote bank " and "minorities appeasement" politics.
"This is an election not only related to the state but the interests of the entire nation".
Modi and Shah have held regular deliberations with the chief ministers and deputy chief ministers of the party on their overall governance. "The BJP is a party with a different work culture".
Citing the party's electoral successes in Assam, Manipur and Uttar Pradesh, he said reasons for these were the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP's booth-level workers. He alleged that 22 BJP and RSS workers had been murdered in Karnataka in Siddaramaiah's tenure. Amit Shah dubbed the Congress-led government a "goonda government".
On the day, Shah visited the Kukke Subramanya temple in Dakshina Kannada district, called on the family of Deepak Rao, a man allegedly murdered in a communal attack, and also addressed a rally of the fishing community at Malpe in Udupi district, where he also visited the Krishna Math.
