With less than a week left for the Karnataka Assembly elections, BJP has intensified its electoral battle through intensive campaigns across the state. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday morning addressed a rally at Chitradurga, where he accused the Congress of distorting history as part of a conspiracy to divide society. He also flayed the Siddaramaiah-led government in the state for celebrating the “jayantis of Sultans” for the sake of “vote bank politics”.BJP president Amit Shah, who addressed a rally at Belagavi, also launched a scathing attack on the CM, accusing him of being anti-farmer.
Modi is likely to hold three more public meetings in Raichur, Jamakhandi and Hubli later in the day. The elections have been slated for May 12 while counting votes will be held on May 15.
