Karnataka: On Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi commenced the initial stage of his three-day campaigning tour for the May 10 Karnataka state assembly elections. He heavily criticized the Congress party, claiming that they had surrendered to terrorism to preserve their vote bank, referring to the demonstrations against the release of the disputed film ‘The Kerala Story.’ The Prime Minister is planned to conduct two roadshows covering 19 out of the 28 assembly constituencies in Bengaluru on Saturday and Sunday.

The Karnataka state assembly, which has 224 members, will hold elections on May 10, with the campaigning concluding on May 8. The controversial film ‘The Kerala Story’ is about a terrorist plot and exposes the dark reality of terrorism. During a rally in Bellary, the Prime Minister accused the Congress party of “bending to terrorism” to preserve their vote bank, and specifically mentioned the protests against the film’s release. This statement was made on the same day that the Kerala High Court refused to halt the movie’s screening. The film has been accused of showing women in Kerala being forcefully converted to Islam and made to join the Islamic State, a claim that has been refuted by the ruling CPI(M) and opposition Congress. The PM argued that the Congress is surrendering to terrorism for the sake of votes and accused them of engaging in “backdoor political bargaining” with groups that have connections to terrorist organizations.

The PM further accused the Congress of being a party that has long been involved in corruption, citing a statement made by former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi about the party being an “85% commission party.” Meanwhile, the Congress has accused the BJP of corruption and referred to them as a “40% sarkara.”

The PM stated that the BJP has a plan to make Karnataka the number one state, whereas the Congress manifesto only contains false narratives and bans. He claimed that the Congress is frightened by the BJP’s growing support and criticized their promise to ban organizations such as the Bajrang Dal.
