BENGALURU: Congress candidate from Bangalore Rural seat, D K Suresh said on Saturday that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is coming today to hold a rally, should tell the people that what he has done in the past 10 years for the development of Karnataka.

Suresh claimed that he is getting more support in his constituency as compared to the last election. “I am getting more support as compared to last election. Everybody in my constituency, irrespective of caste and age are supporting me. The five guarantees of our government has worked for everyone. I worked hard for the development of my constituency. I tried to resolve the personal and government issues. People remember all my work. I have also given future plans. I have also promised that wherever Cauvery water is needed in my constituency, I assure them good quality and regular supply of water”, he said.

“PM Modi is coming today. He has to tell the people that what he has done in the past 10 years for the development of Karnataka. How much money he has given? Why he is not controlling the price rise?” DK Suresh added.

Further, the sitting MP said that the BJP people are telling all the lies. They are not delivering their promises while the Congress has delivered its guarantees in the state.

“This is the election on national issues. We are fighting against the BJP and price rise; unemployment are the major issues. Karnataka is not getting proper funds from Central government even when we are the second largest taxpayers in the country. Even in the time of drought, they are not helping at any aspect. They are treating us discriminately. They are taking our money to develop North India. Our Kannadigas people are under pressure and going to Gujarat for jobs”, Suresh said.

Bangalore Rural seat will go to polls in the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections on April 26. The BJP has fielded CN Manjunath, son-in-law of former PM Deve Gowda, against Congress’ DK Suresh. The JD(S) and BJP are in alliance from Karnataka for the Lok Sabha polls.

In the 2019 election, Suresh got 8,78,258 of votes. He also won the seat in 2014 elections. (ANI)
