BJP is now making, the ending the reservation given to Muslims in Karnataka, election issue. Amit Shah has used it as a weapon against the opposition. Addressing election rally in Karnataka’s Bagalkot, Union Home Minister Amit Shah lambasted at the opposition while making an appeal to people to vote for the BJP.
Addressing the election rally, Amit Shah said that this election is an election to submit Karnataka to safe hands of Modi ji. This is the election to make Karnataka a fully developed state. This election is the election of political stability and election for new Karnataka, which BJP only can bring. On one side is the double engine government of BJP and on the other side there is a reverse gear government. If Congress gains power, the progress of Karnataka is going to be in reverse gear. This is the election of generation change and we will once again form the government under the leadership of Modi ji.
In Bagalkot, Union Home Minister Amit Shah targeted opposition parties and added that since 9 years Modi ji has sent the money and schemes from the Centre to Karnataka. If, even by mistake Congress wins, there will happen the largest corruption, appeasement, nepotism and Karnataka state will be affected by riots. You (Congress) contest elections depending on the leaders from BJP, this shows that your party is bankrupt.
Amit Shah, said that there was 4% reservation for Muslims on the basis of religion. But, BJP government has done away with the Muslim reservation without falling prey to the vote bank. We believe that there should be no reservation on the basis of religion. After ending Muslim reservation we have worked to increase reservation for SC, ST, Voklinga and Lingayat.
