The Congress, which has party president Rahul Gandhi on a tour across Karnataka, has jeered at the BJP for cranking up the Modi factor at this late stage. He appealed to the voters to vote for Congress in the upcoming elections.

"There should be truth in the words that come out of the prime minister's mouth".

The Congress president also says people who left the party for the BJP are "already having second thoughts". "Siddaramaiah also expressed his frustration by saying" he asks questions to Modi but he diverted attention to" history, clothes and pronunciations. "There should be some weight in his words".

While Janardhana Reddy's imprint was nowhere to be seen when Modi visited Ballari, he is still involved with the BJP and is working out of a rented house in Hanagal on the border of Chitradurga and Ballari.

"Bengaluru was known as the "computer capital" but the present government has changed it to a "crime capital", Prime Minister Modi said, adding that "we are working towards promoting "Ease of Doing Business", Congress is ensuring Ease of Doing Murder".
