Here is what the BJP president had to say on some of the issues and political opponents:
"Modiji, tell us what you did in four years," Shah mimicked Rahul Gandhi
. "He keeps on asking loudly what Prime Minister Narendra Modi did in four years. You are asking us what Modiji did in four years? India wants to know what you did for four generations," Shah said further at a rally in Karnataka's Bidar.
Amit Shah once again racked up Tipu Sultan
issue to attack Siddaramiah government in Karnataka. "...They (Congress) don't do anything, but just Tipu Sultan, Tipu Sultan, Tipu Sultan....now they are even talking about celebrating Bahmani Samrajya (Bahmani Sultanate)..I don't know what has happened to them. They don't see anything else," Shah said.
He also accused the state government of neglecting the development of the state, which is located in between the two big cities - Hyderabad and Mumbai. It is so located, Shah said, that if an industrial corridor is made, it will provide jobs to lakhs of youths from the region.
Mahadayi water dispute:
Amit Shah vowed to get Mahadayi river water
to drought-prone districts of the state if BJP is voted to power in the upcoming state assembly election, due in April-May. "I guarantee the people of Karnataka that we will resolve the Mahadayi water issue with Goa if we win the ensuing assembly election. We will find a solution soon after coming to power in the state," claimed Shah. He blamed the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government for neglected the issue for political benefits.
"Siddaramaiah has become synonymous with corruption," Shah said while accusing the state government of failing to check corruption
in the state. "Karnataka government has failed on all fronts, be it law and order or development, it has failed. Corruption cases are on a rise. Corruption and Siddaramaiah government have become synonymous," Shah said in Kalaburagi.
OBC community: Aware of the fact that OBCs constitute a large part of the state's population, Amit Shah called on them to root out the Congress government to bring in a change in the state. "Once the OBC, the backward community decides, no one can save this Congress government. OBC community will have to root out the Congress government," he said.
Modi: Terming the Narendra Modi government at the centre as a "huge factory" that generates electricity called development, Shah said the new dispensation in Karnataka should act like a transformer to access that electricity efficiently. "Here that transformer is burnt and that is the reason development is not reaching the masses and villages," he said.
