Amit Shah criticises the Cong and JD(S) by taking part in a road show

Amit Shah criticised the opposition Congress and JD(S) and accused them of dynasty politics and corruption in an effort to win support for the BJP’s attempt to build a full-fledged majority administration in Karnataka. In preparation for the state’s upcoming May assembly elections, Karnataka BJP’s “Vijaya Sankalp Abhiyan” organised a road show here on Saturday. Union Home Minister Amit Shah participated.

He urged support for the BJP in its bid to form a full-fledged majority government in Karnataka, singling out the opposition Congress and JD(S) and accusing them of dynasty politics and corruption. As a large crowd of BJP supporters and workers gathered, Shah participated in the road show while riding in an open truck that had been elaborately decorated over a distance of more than a kilometre from Basavanna Devara Matha to Gali Mariyamma Temple. Basavaraj Bommai, the chief minister of Karnataka, Pralhad Joshi, a prominent BJP official, B.S. Yediyurappa, Arun Singh, the state party president, Nalin Kumar Kateel, and former chief minister Jagadish Shettar travelled with Shah on the campaign trail.

As drums pounded and slogans such as “Modi Modi” and “Bharat Mata ki Jai” echoed, people gathered along the stretch of road and scattered flower petals at the leaders’ vehicle in various locations. At the end of the road show, Shah delivered a brief speech to the crowd in which he chastised the JD(S) and Congress for engaging in dynastic politics and corruption and urged people to vote BJP in the upcoming assembly elections.According to party sources, the BJP’s road show was intended to win over voters in Kundgol and the surrounding Assembly constituencies in the Dharwad district.

The current Congress party representative for the Kundgol Assembly district is Kusumavati Channabasappa Shivalli. She was chosen to replace the seat in the 2019 by-elections after the passing of her husband, incumbent MLA C. S. Shivalli. Shivalli won the seat in the 2013 and 2018 Assembly elections.
