"EAM Swaraj and Defence minister Sitharaman example of women empowerment" : Modi

He further talked about the initiatives taken by the government for women's empowerment.

In his address PM Modi asserted that "Able women have been given important portfolios in our Cabinet", mentioning the achievements of EMA Sushma Swaraj and Defence minister Niramla Sitharaman. He said that the women were leading "India's growth story". He also tried to show Congress in poor light by mentioning that because of BJP policies, he himself, who was selling tea and belonged to backward community, could rise to become Prime Minister. He observed that now the nation was "talking about women-led development".

The Congress chief said the Prime Minister's words should carry weight and rued that Modi neither cared to deliver on his promises, nor answered questions about accountability. "A Congress MLA's son beats up innocent people and the government protects him.their leaders are drunk on power", he said, referring to lawmaker N A Haris" son Mohammad Nalapad, who beat up a man at a cafe in Bengaluru some time back. "Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana was started, more than 19 thousand crore deposited under this scheme".

State president of the Bharatiya Janata Party BS Yeddyurappa on Friday released the vision document for Karnataka Assembly elections 2018.

On Tuesday, Modi had used the Namo App to communicate with the BJP's Kisan Morcha in Karnataka and asked party workers to publicise the Centre's farmer-friendly schemes.

PM Modi also said Bengaluru was earlier a city of lakes, but Congress transformed it into a "city of burning lakes".

PM Modi comment came during his election speech at Bengaluru which accounted for 28 seats in the assembly's 224 that the Congress government ruined the reputation of the city from a Garden City garbage city and silicon valley to Valley of sin -computer capital to crime capital and also the city of lakes into a city of burning lakes.

It has urged the poll panel to take action against the BJP, including direction for registration of offences for the violation of Model Code of Conduct, Section 123 (2), 123 (3A), 123 (4) & 125 of Representation of People Act, 1951 and Section 171G of Indian Penal Code.

Rahul brought up the subject while addressing a public rally in Karnataka on Thursday, recalling that the Prime Minister had not uttered a word when he had approached him for farm-loan waiver.

The momentum in the past 15 days is clearly in favour of the BJP which is heading for a clear majority in the May 12 assembly polls, party Rajya Sabha member Rajeev Chandrasekhar claimed today.
