PM Modi accuses Congress of allowing handful of people to loot banks

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today accused the successive Congress governments at the Centre of allowing a handful of people to loot banks while denying loans to poor. 

Kick-starting his election campaign in Karnataka, Mr. Modi addressed public rallies at Chamarajnager, Udipi, Belagavi and Chikodi. He said, despite the nationalisation of banks poor remained out of the banking system until his government started helming the country. 

The Prime Minister told the gathering that 28th April got a momentous day in the history of the country when all un-electrified villages were connected with power lines. 

He said, the NDA government will embark on a task of connecting 4 crore households which do not have electricity even after 70 years of independence.

The Prime Minister dared Congress President Rahul Gandhi to speak in any language for 15 minutes about the achievements of Karnataka's Siddaramaiah government without referring to a piece of paper. 

Mr. Modi said, he is a person from the working class and any criticism by Naamdhar, a person from famous family, will not deter him from taking up the development work. 

He said, the Congress neither respected Babasaheb Ambedkar nor accepted his views. Mr. Modi said, if anyone has played with the Constitution of India, it is the Congress party. 

The Prime Minister assured the people of Karnataka that all the pending projects in the state will be speeded up when BJP comes to power. 

Mr. Modi claimed over two dozen BJP workers were killed under the Congress government in Karnataka in political violence.
