Defence Minister Rajnath Singh campaigned in Bagalkot and Belegavi districts in Karnataka with other BJP leaders. He praised the government’s work and PM Modi’s fight against corruption to get support for the party’s candidates. Singh said BJP stands for justice and humanity for everyone, while Congress violates the constitution with religion-based quotas in Karnataka.
At a rally in Kangwad, he asked people to vote for stability and reminded them of the 2018 election where BJP won the most votes but couldn’t form a government due to lack of majority. Singh said people must vote with a two-thirds majority for initiatives to succeed.
He also talked about drought in Karnataka and how piped water to homes and agriculture has helped the local economy. Singh criticized Congress for dividing the nation based on religion during the “emergency” and quota debates. He accused Rahul Gandhi of dramatics and claimed that India is already united.
Singh defended Modi government against accusations of political vendetta and said cases against corrupt officials are handled on their merits regardless of background.
