Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the Lok Sabha poll 2019 is about choosing a new India for the 21st century. It is not about choosing the Prime Minister or Minister or forming the government but how New India should be in the 21st century. 

Addressing Vijaya Sankalpa Rally at Nehru Maidan here on Saturday, he said the voters had given an opportunity for the Congress in the 20th century. However, the party handed over the governance to one family. 

Coming down heavily on the Congress-JDS government in Karnataka, he said the coalition government takes inspiration from Pariwarvad (dynasty) but BJP gets inspiration from Rashtrawd (nationalism). 

Terming coalition government as the enemy of farmers, he said the coalition government has failed to provide a list of beneficiaries for the Central government’s PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana. As a result, when farmers in the rest of the country had availed the first instalment of Rs 2,000 under the scheme, the farmers in Karnataka are still waiting for the instalment benefit. 

He also said that the "Mahamilavat" (adulterated) culture of Congress has destroyed not only traditions but also weakened the Defence and the economy and banking sector of the country.  Modi also added that Bjp in its manifesto has promised to work towards assisting the maximum number of fishermen by ensuring availability of storage and infrastructure under Matsya Sampada Yojana

Promising to have a separate fisheries minister when the BJP government is formed after the election, he said financial help will be given for the upgradation of deep sea trawlers and fishermen are Naval Messaging Receiver (NMR) device to get alert messages. 

Modi also added that Bjp in its manifesto has promised to work towards assisting the maximum number of fishermen by ensuring availability of storage and infrastructure under Matsya Sampada Yojana. 

Police deny reports on water bottles thrown at Modi 

There was a media report saying water bottles were thrown at Modi during a rally in Mangaluru. But later it was confirmed as a rumour. 

In a response to the report, Mangaluru Commissioner of Police Sandeep Patil denied any incident of the crowd being pelted with plastic water bottles at the end of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech at Nehru Maidan on Friday evening. Patil told DH that as part of security measures the public was not allowed to carry water bottles into the venue. “Perhaps at the end of the rally, the crowd at the further end of maidan would have resorted to dumping their plastic water bottles,” he said.
