Four months before the Karnataka assembly elections, Union home minister Amit Shah urged people in Mandya, the Vokkaliga heartland (approximately 100 kilometres from Bengaluru), that it was time to stop dynasty politics in the state and give it a corruption-free administration.
He told supporters that if they voted for his party, he would set the district on the path to growth.
Meanwhile, JD(S) national president and former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda praised Shah at the opening of a new mega dairy in Manmul, Mandya. Gowda stated that Shah has worked relentlessly to combat corruption in cooperative banks across the country, as well as to strengthen the dairy industry. The JD(S) patriarch described Shah as “energetic and smart,” adding that politics aside, he has a lot of respect for him.
In Mandya, Shah stated that both the Congress and the JD(S) had not broken free from the confines of dynasty politics. ”
When they were first established, neither party invested in growth.. When the Congress was in control, Karnataka became Delhi’s ATM; when the JD(S) was in charge, it was one family’s ATM “He said.
“If the people of Mysuru and Mandya strengthen our hands, then the BJP will take development in the region to a whole new level in the next five years,” he said, exhorting party workers to work hard in Mysuru and Mandya so that the BJP achieves majority status in the state on its own for the first time.
Shah stated Congress and the JD(S) are “communal” and provide safe havens for criminals. He said that the Congress dismissed complaints against 170 Popular Front of India workers, but the Modi government outlawed the organisation and imprisoned its members.
He further said that the Congress, when in power, had treated Dalits and Adivasis unfairly until the BJP appointed a Dalit and Adivasi as President of India.
