Lok Sabha Election-2024: What PM Modi said about Bengaluru's water crisis

Lok Sabha Election-2024: In Bengaluru today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a scathing attack on Congress blaming it for the city's infrastructure woes. He highlighted the severe water crisis in certain areas of Bengaluru, which has resulted in water rationing and penalties for non-essential water usage. 

Modi, addressing a rally in the city, criticized the Congress-led government in Karnataka for transforming the tech hub into a "tanker city" at the mercy of the tanker mafia.

Accusing the Congress of being against the private sector, taxpayers, and wealth creation, Modi said BJP's focus is on India's development and global reputation rather than personal attacks. He contrasted the worn-out rhetoric of the INDIA alliance leaders with his own track record, seeking support from the people of Bengaluru.

In the upcoming elections, BJP MPs Tejasvi Surya and PC Mohan are contesting from Bangalore South and Central, respectively, while Union Minister Shobha Karandlaje is the candidate from Bangalore North. 

In Bangalore Rural, cardiologist CN Manjunath, the son-in-law of former Prime Minister Deve Gowda, is running on a BJP ticket in collaboration with the Janata Dal (Secular).

Modi has recently conducted large-scale rallies in Kalaburagi and Shivamogga, followed by a rally in Mysuru where he shared the stage with Mr. Gowda, and a roadshow in Mangaluru.

Voting in Karnataka will be held in two phases, with the first on April 26 and the second on May 7.
