Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday visited Karnataka where he addressed a public meeting at Kalaburagi and laid the foundation stone for the resitement of BPCL Depot Raichur to Kalaburagi.

Attacking at Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy PM Modi referred to him as a “remote-controlled chief minister” and the Karnataka government as a “mazboor (weak)” government.

Addressing a rally at Kalaburagi in Karnataka, the PM said, "Remember when we began Jan Dhan how they mocked it. Same with Aadhar. But today, Aadhar has ensured that all routes for corruption for these people have been stopped."

"Our performance is for everyone to see. This is the reason the opposition talks about removing me day and night. They (the opposition) is getting together to remove me and I am working to removing terrorism. I want to remove corruption and poverty from the country," PM Modi added.

Saying that he has the blessings of the 125 crore people of India, he said that he wasn’t afraid of anyone.

“The person who has the blessings of 125 crore people doesn’t fear anybody, not Pakistan, not thieves. The country has given me this strength,” he said. At the same time, he came down hard on the Kumaraswamy government and called him a weak chief minister.

Questioning the state government’s move to not share the farmers’ details with the Centre, he said that the farmers will destroy those who stand in the way of farmers’ benefit.

“When the Central government is giving money should these people feel pain? Should they have problems? They have problems because Modi is giving money directly to the farmers and there is no room for misappropriation. I want to tell them if they stand in the way of the farmers, the farming community will destroy them,” he said.

PM Modi said that it was time for the politicians who make tall promises during elections and then forget their promises to be held accountable.

He further said, “This is the truth of family politicians and the corrupt. They get votes in the name of farmers but forget the farmers once they are elected. Did they not ask for votes by promising farm loan waiver? Did they not say they would do complete waiver? Instead, they filed cases against the farmers. It is time to take them to account."

"They themselves don’t stick by their word but will create hurdles for those who are working honestly. They are not interested in joining the scheme because their relatives will not benefit,” the PM claimed.
