Prime Minister Narendra Modi with BJP leaders Ananth Kumar and B.S. Yeddyurappa in Bengaluru on Sunday

Two well-known personalities from Karnataka on Monday joined the BJP here in presence of union ministers Ananth Kumar and Prakash Javadekar, months ahead of the state assembly elections.

Flanked by key ministers of his Cabinet at the press conference, Siddaramaiah charged that Modi was "supporting and facilitating corruption" while saying that the Centre was yet to appoint a Lokpal. He added that Modi had stressed on the achievements of his own government and picked on the failures of the Siddaramaiah rule but said nothing on the five years of BJP rule in the state. And in the same breath, he attacked former Karnataka chief minister and BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa citing his arrest in the past.

Accusing the Congress government in the state of being "corrupt", the Prime Minister said the party was opposing the path of development that the Bharatiya Janata Party was aiming at for the nation.

"Even if Modi makes 100 visits to the state or (BJP chief) Amit Shah engineers communal riots, we will win the upcoming state elections", the Congress leader said. "The Congress government is at the exit gate", Modi said at a public rally in Palace Grounds, Bengaluru, taking on the Siddaramaiah regime. "Like how Amul is a model in the milk sector for enhancing the income of dairy farmers, Operation Greens will assure incomes for tomato, onion, potato... and all vegetable farmers", PM Modi said.

According to the Karnataka Chief Minister, the Centre has been biased against Karnataka and has not given the complete aid as per 14th Finance Commission decision.

"What moral right does Modi have to point fingers at our government when he had B S Yeddyurappa next to him?"

"Prime Minister Modi is morally unfit to be the Prime Minister". Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who welcomed the Prime Minister, at the Bengaluru airport, asked him to intervene to resolve Mahadayi issue. "I lost interest after he went on and on about his benevolence shown towards Karnataka. but came back when he said POT.or was it TOP?"

Modi said "in the whole world there is discussion about ease of doing business and there are efforts in that direction".

Yeddyurappa attacked Siddaramaiah and tweeted that the State had become "No.1 in corruption" under the Congress and has faced over 3,000 farmer deaths, collapse of law and order. "He did not speak as prime minister".
