Time to end dynastic politics: Shah sounds Karnataka poll bugle | India News


MYSURU: Four months ahead of the Karnataka assembly polls, Union home minister Amit Shah told voters in the Vokkaliga heartland of Mandya (about 100 km from Bengaluru) that it was time to end dynastic politics in the state and give it a corruption-free government.
He promised voters that his party would put the district on the path of development if people offered full support in the polls.
Meanwhile, JD(S) national president and former PM HD Deve Gowda heaped praise on Shah during the launch of a new mega dairy at Manmul, in Mandya. Gowda said Shah has worked tirelessly to curb corruption in cooperative banks across the country, and has empowered the dairy sector. Calling Shah “active and brilliant”, the JD(S) patriarch said politics aside, he has a lot of respect for him.
In Mandya Shah said both Congress and JD(S) have not come out of the clutches of dynastic politics. “When people voted them in, both parties didn’t take up any development work. Karnataka became Delhi’s ATM when Congress was in power; when JD(S) held the reins, it was one family’s ATM,” he claimed.
“If the people of Mysuru and Mandya strengthen our hands, then BJP will, in the next five years, take development in the region to a whole new level,” he said, exhorting party workers to work hard in Mysuru and Mandya so that BJP hits the majority mark in the state on its own for the first time.
Shah claimed Congress and JD(S) are “communal” and shelter criminals. He said Congress withdrew cases against 170 activists of the Popular Front of India whereas the Modi government banned the organisation and jailed its members.
He also alleged that Congress, when in power, had done injustice to Dalits and adivasis until BJP made a Dalit and adivasi the president of India.
Ayodhya Ram temple to open by Jan 2024
Shah on Friday said the “grand inauguration of the magnificent Ram Mandir” in Ayodhya will be held on January 1, 2024, and urged people from Mandya to start reserving tickets for their journey to Ayodhya.
