State BJP President B S Yeddyurappa speaks at BJP's parivarthana yathra in Mudigere on Saturday.

State BJP President B S Yeddyurappa said that the BJP will implement death sentence to rapists within 24 hours of coming to power in Karnataka.

Speaking at BJP's parivarthana yathra in Mudigere on Saturday, he said that the Congress has no moral right to speak on Dr B R Ambedkar. The Congress had conspired against Ambedkar during the election, he said. The Congress did not even allow his memorial in Rajghat. It was with the help of the BJP during V P Singh's tenure that Ambedkar was conferred Bharath Ratna award, he said.

Yeddyurappa said there has been an increase in atrocities on women after the Congress government came to power in Karnataka. A total of 3,102 sexual assault cases, 2534 murders, 430 kidnap and atrocities on 19,000 female students have taken place in the state which points a finger at the failure of the state government, he added. "The BJP is committed to the safety of women and will frame rules to provide death sentence to rapists after coming to power," he said.

Union Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said that Bhairapura-Shishila road has been included in Sagarmala project.

MP Shobha Karandlaje said the Congress which ruled the country for seven decades did not take any measures to distribute LPG to the poor. The NDA government led by Narendra Modi implemented Ujwala scheme to distribute LPG to the poor, she added.

Former MLA M P Kumaraswamy said that the local MLA has failed to raise the issue of encroachment, tiger and elephant menace. No action has been initiated to contain the tiger and elephant menace.

MLAs C T Ravi, D N Jeevraj, MLC M K Pranesh and others were present.
