By Chennabasaveshwar

Amit Shah, said, "I am confident that BJP will win in Karnataka. I have travelled all over the state and people have been waiting for development, rather they are getting corruption."

"Congress and corruption go hand-in-hand, so much so that their relationship is like fish and water and this has been extended by the Siddaramaiah government," he said.

Amit Shah stated that the incumbent government development parameters are going down in Karnataka. "Despite this being a state with such a strong IT sector, it still does not get 24-hour electricity. Health and implementation of central schemes are also falling. More than 3500 farmers have committed suicide in this region. In terms of development, all parameters are going down," Shah said.

"The people of Karnataka have made up their mind to replace the Siddaramaiah. Karnataka government is an ATM of corruption. How can someone call farmers' suicides a conspiracy? I have decided to give Rs 10 crore to poor families and Rs 5 lakh as health insurance," said Amit Shah.
