No anti-Cong wave; anti-BJP wave in Karnataka says Siddaramaiah

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said that there was no anti-incumbent government wave in Karnataka, but an anti-BJP/Modi  wave in the state which goes to polls in April-May 2018.  

He was addressing a Congress rally in Belagavi on Thursday.  

Siddaramaiah said that both Amit Shah and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had an eye on Karnataka, given the upcoming polls.

But Modi charm that was evident in the last Lok Sabha polls had declined.

"The recent Gundlupet and Najanagud bye-elections are proof of the fact the voters now prefer Congress," he asserted.  

The CM decried BJP's 'Hindutva' stance and questioned if the party 'solely owned Hindutva'?    

Siddaramaiah said that the state government had waived off farmers' loans and the centre had done no such thing though State BJP President Yeddyurappa had gone public stating that he would move the centre to contribute to the effort.

"Former PM Manmohan Singh had waived farmers' loans.  Let Yedyurappa gherao the Parliament now, if he wants to," the CM taunted.  

Siddaramaiah called upon voters not to allow 'communal BJP or Opportunistic JD(S) to come to power'.
