Modi had irked the Karnataka CM with his comment, among several, that Siddaramaiah's was a "10 percent commission" government during his Karnataka visit on February 4.

In a frontal attack on the Siddaramaiah government on January 25, Shah had called it a "corrupt, malicious and oppressive" regime and asked the people of the state to "root it out" in the Assembly polls due this year.

Charging that the state "is setting new records in corruption", Modi said, "Congress free government means freedom from dynastic rule, nepotism, corruption and loot". "He has made baseless and irresponsible accusations", Siddaramaiah said on Monday.

Ghorpade said his family had been with the Congress since independence, but he chose to join the BJP after being inspired by the vision of Prime Minister Modi.

Asserting that there was a "saffron wave" in the state, Modi said people of Karnataka had decided to make the state Congress free and to get rid of Congress culture. When the BJP came to power in the Centre, we gave the state 2 lakh crore. "While the world is talking about ease of doing business, the BJP Government is talking about ease of living, but the Karnataka Government is talking about ease of doing murder", he said. "We are starting "Operation Greens" which help farmers produce the vegetables". Expectedly, pro-Kannada leaders are upset that PM Modi failed to mention the Mahadayi issue. "Under Jan Dhan Yojana, 1.16 crore accounts were opened in Karnataka, opening doors of banking for the poor and middle class". "The PM spoke about corruption with Yeddyurappa beside him". "He (Siddaramaiah) would like to make it a local versus outsider issue and can do so only if he makes it him versus Modi directly", said political analyst Dr Narendar Pani of National Institute of Advanced Studies.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has emphasised that recent General budget serves farmers and favours middle class. Her jibe was criticised by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), with its IT wing head Amit Malviya saying, "More than 3,500 farmers have committed suicide in Karnataka, the highest for any state in India, but speaking for them is being on "POT'.
