The Asian Age - - Nation - SHILPA P.

BJP na­tional pres­i­dent, Amit Shah, who is cur­rently cam­paign­ing in the state for the com­ing As­sem­bly poll, as­serted on Fri­day that the JD( S) could not throw the Congress out, but the BJP could and “the big­gest shock de­feat” for the party would be­gin from chief min­is­ter Sid­dara­ma­iah’s home­town of Mysore.

“We are look­ing for trans­for­ma­tion of the state for the sake of its women, youth, dal­its, and trib­als. Do the peo­ple want the BJP, which is com­mit­ted to devel­op­ment or the Congress which is col­lect­ing com­mis­sion?” he asked, ad­dress­ing the “Navashak­thi” con­ven­tion of BJP work­ers of 656 booths of Chama­raja Narasimharaja and Kr­ish­naraja con­stituen­cies at the Ma­haraja’s Col­lege grounds.

Mr Shah, who ar­rived in Mysore by a spe­cial flight Thurs­day evening, is par­tic­i­pat­ing in a se­ries of events in old Mysore re­gion over Fri­day and Satur­day.

Ac­cus­ing the Congress of play­ing vote bank pol­i­tics, he said while its gov­ern­ment in the state did not re­mem­ber to cel­e­brate the birth an­niver­saries of Ku­vempu or Sir M. Vish­weswara­iah, it cel­e­brated the birth an­niver­sary of Tipu Sul­tan “to at­tract votes.”
