While addressing an election rally in Karnataka's Mysuru, he said, "Congress party has become the sultan of tukde tukde gang. Their hate towards the country has crossed the limit. Congress wants to weaken the country. The Congress party's dangerous intentions are still the same. They have not changed. They are playing with fire to assume power."

He further claimed that Congress always supports those who believe in dividing the country and forms alliance with those involved in terrorist activities/

"Congress forms alliance with an organization involved in terrorist activities which is banned. Congress asks for proof of surgical attack from Army. They refuse to accept Kashmir as our own. They disrespected Lord Ram. People of INDI alliance want to end Sanatan. They want to destroy Hindu religion. As long as Modi is there, no one's plans will be fulfilled, this is Modi's guarantee," he said.

He further launched an apparent attack on party leader DK Suresh saying that the Congress rewards those who talk against the country.

"People of Karnataka are witness that those who speak against India, Congress as a reward gives them an election ticket. Recently you might have seen at a Congress election rally a person made people shout 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' slogan, but before doing it, he had to seek the permission of leaders sitting on the stage," he said.

In February this year, the Congress MP made a controversial remark while speaking about the budget saying, "It will be enough if they give us the money they (the Centre) owe us. Today, our request is that taxes collected as GST, customs and direct taxes must reach us. We are seeing a lot of wrong being done to South India."

This was the first rally by PM Modi ahead of polling for the Lok Sabha elections. Former prime minister and JD(S) patriarch H D Deve Gowda was among those present at the rally.

Earlier in the day, the BJP released its manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. It made several key promises, from the continuation of the free ration scheme for another five years to the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code (UCC).
