Addressing an election meeting at Madanthyaar in Bantwal taluk, he said the party would undertake an extensive survey of farmers, identify their problems and evolve schemes to redress their plight. Taking strong exception to BJP's proposal to convert Karnataka into another Gujarat, if it comes to power, Mr Krishna sarcastically said Karnataka should not become another Gujarat as it had its own glorious history, culture and development.

''There is no need for the state to emulate the model of any other state. Karnataka is a model for itself. it will achieve fast progress'', he added.
