Siddaramaiah also reacted to BJP state president B Y Vijayendra's comments that the guarantee schemes in the state are "temporary".

"Vijayendra doesn't know things, what does he mean by temporary? Is he a fortune teller? In Karnataka we will be (in power) this term and the next term too, and will not stop guarantee schemes for any reason," said Siddaramaiah.

"Guarantee schemes will be continued and for this, we have set aside 52,000 crore in the budget," added the Karnataka CM.

Karnataka elects 28 Lok Sabha members to Parliament. In the Lok Sabha election 2024, voting will be held in Karnataka in two phases, on April 26 and May 07. The results of the polls will be declared on June 4.
