He said that in contrast, BJP has kept its promise by making the son of a dalit woman, Ram Nath Kovind and A P J Abdul Kalam from Muslim community the Presidents of India.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who addressed three public rallies in the state on Thursday, interacted with the office bearers and workers of the BJP's Karnataka women's wing through the NaMo App. The party's "secular" outlook did not prevent it from partnering in a coalition government with the Bharatiya Janata Party in 2006; notwithstanding the protestations of patriarch H.D. Deve Gowda, another such arrangement between the two parties can not be ruled out.

He said the Congress government in the state had launched several schemes that has helped farmers.

Modi said Congress was trying to fool the people of Karnataka with its manifesto.

On Rahul Gandhi, Deve Gowda said he would not make any comment as Rahul has to learn a lot in politics.

"The Karnataka BJP has made false, baseless, unfounded and unsubstantiated allegations using cutouts, shadow images and likeness of Rahul Gandhi and Siddaramaiah being fully aware that the Model Code was in force", it added.
