Karnataka 2018: BJP releases manifesto, promises to waive off farmer loans

The chief minister, after providing a reasonably efficient government over the past five years which gave Karnataka a much-needed sense of political stability, has so far shown himself smarter than most incumbents facing the BJP onslaught.

When asked whether the JD (S) will back Congress "minus Siddharamaiah" as candidate for Chief Minister, Gowda said: "There is no question of aligning with anybody in case of fractured mandate". "I am from India and he is the PM of India and I will never launch a personal attack on him", the Congress president said, as the two leaders stepped up their campaign for the May 12 Assembly polls. "On one hand, there's Congress with its ideology of unity, and an inclusive Karnataka while on the other, we have the BJP-RSS with its ideology of hatred and division".

He said, "Look at the rising illegal mining in the state".

PM Modi also trained his guns on CM Siddaramaiah for not formulating a comprehensive mining policy during his time in charge. Gowda says. "People understand what the real issues are".

"We hereby request the Hon'ble Election Commission in accordance with parliamentary and democratic traditions, to enquire into and take strict and prompt action in the said matter against BJP Karnataka for violation of prevailing laws, including MCC, RP Act, 1951 and IPC", the memorandum added.
