Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has penned an open letter to the people of Karnataka, a day before the state assembly elections, urging them to vote for the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).
In his letter, Modi highlighted the achievements of the BJP-led central and state governments, including the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), the construction of the Bogibeel Bridge, the Ayushman Bharat health scheme, and the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan cleanliness campaign.
Modi also criticized the opposition parties, particularly the Indian National Congress, for their alleged failures and corruption during their previous terms in power.
“Congress leaders only think about their own power and wealth, while our government has always worked for the benefit of the people,” Modi wrote.
He also addressed the farmers of Karnataka, promising to continue to support them and increase their incomes through various agricultural schemes and initiatives.
“Farmers are the backbone of our nation, and we will continue to work for their welfare and progress,” Modi stated.
The prime minister urged the people of Karnataka to exercise their right to vote and choose a government that will work for the development of the state and the well-being of its citizens.
“Your vote is your voice. Use it to choose a government that will serve you and work tirelessly for your progress,” Modi concluded.
The Karnataka assembly elections are being held on May 12, and the results will be announced on May 15. The BJP is seeking to retain power in the state, while the Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) are the main opposition parties.
