Shivamogga: Predicting a sure shot defeat of JDS Supremo HD Devegowda in Tumakuru, BJP State President BS Yeddyurappa has said that the BJP will win 22 seats in the state.
Addressing Vijay Sankalp Convention at Shikaripura on Wednesday, BSY said that after the Lok Sabha election result is out, the unholy alliance of the JDS and the Congress will break.
“The Congress and the JDS have been cheating the farmers in one way or the other and the loan waiver claims that they have been making is only a election and a political gimmick,” he said.
“It was Kumarswamy who promised to waive off farm loans within 24 hours of becoming the CM. Why has he not done it?” he questioned and added that everyone has been talking about Prime Minister Modi because he has done so many good work for the welfare of the people.
Calling former PM Manmohan Singh as a mere remote control of Sonia Gandhi, BSY said that Manmohan Singh government left behind a loan of Rs 54 lakh crore on the country and it was the Modi government, which started clearing the loan.
“The Congress and the JDS only cheated the people. This kind of government that believes in cheating and looting people should not remain in power,” he said.
Former deputy CM KS Eshwarappa, BJP candidate from Shivamogga BY Raghavendra among others were present.
