Karnataka BJP President B S Yeddyurappa urged dalits not to vote for the Congress, as the party had not bestowed the Bharat Ratna accolade to Dr B R Ambedkar, who is popularly known as the architect of the Indian Constitution.

Speaking at BJP's Parivartana Yatre rally at Srinivasapur, Kolar district, on Saturday, he said that during the last election, people were misguided and hence voted Congress to power. "The same mistake must not happen in the upcoming elections," he added.

He said that the BJP had trounced the Congress at the national level.

He alleged that state government had embezzled crores of rupees in the name of irrigation projects.

Murderous government

Union Minister D V Sadananda Gowda who spoke on the occasion, alleged that there was 'murderous government' ruling Karnataka and the law and order situation in the state had worsened.

"Women fear coming out of their houses," said Gowda.

He added that the BJP would implement the Yettinahole project if it comes to power in the state in the upcoming polls. This project involves construction of eight small dams.

'Benki (fire) Ramaiah'

BJP MLA R Ashoka who spoke, called Chief Minister Siddaramaiah; 'benki (fire) ramaiah' because the CM was allegedly lighting fires between people of various castes and faiths.

He alleged that state Congress leaders had embezzled the Rs 3 lakh crore released by the Centre for various schemes.
