"Karnataka has seen a long period of opportunistic and selfish coalition governments. Karnataka has faced losses due to such governments. So, for fast-paced development of Karnataka, BJP's full majority, and stable government is needed," Modi said.

"Can we trust Congress that makes false promises? Should they be allowed to place a step inside Karnataka or should they be thrown out," he asked, adding that the people of Karnataka should be cautious and not give them an opportunity "to play their game".

During his poll rally, he even mentioned an incident wherein senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah allegedly slapped a party supporter who had come to meet him. The prime minister said, “Those who don't respect their own workers cannot be expected to respect other people.”
