PM Modi, BSY double engine for Karnataka’s growth, says Amit Shah | Hubballi News – Times of India


BELAGAVI/BAGALKOT: A day after exuding confidence over the BJP government completing its full term in Karnataka, Union home minister Amit Shah said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and chief minister BS Yediyurappa are the “double engine” of development in the state.
Hailing Modi’s pro-poor policies and Yediyurappa’s decisions in Karnataka, Shah said the duo has been working tirelessly towards developing the state. The statement is being read by Yediyurappa loyalists as continued reaffirmation of the central leadership’s confidence in the CM, despite dissidence within the state unit over choice of new ministers and questions over his political future.
Shah spoke at Bagalkot and Belagavi, highlighting the achievements of the Modi government and its commitment to protect the interests of farmers.
He reached out to farmers at Kerakalamatti in Badami taluk, Bagalkot district at a time when the Centre is facing massive resistance against farm laws. After inaugurating an ethnaol unit set up by the MRN Group headed by Murugesh Nirani, who was inducted last week into the cabinet, he said the Union government is promoting ethanol to decrease oil imports from Arab nations and cut fuel prices.
He reiterated that despite several odds, the Yediyurappa government showed how Covid -19 can be contained and that both the Centre and state handled the pandemic well . He hit back at the Congress over safety concerns raised by opposition parties and said it was trying to mislead people. “I appeal to people to get vaccinated and not to heed the claims of the Congress as vaccines are very safe,” he said.
At Bagalkot, Shah said the Union government is committed to doubling farmers’ income and policies are moving in that direction. He said the government has brought a Fasal Bima scheme, Kisan Sanman and provided loans to the tune of Rs 13 lakh crore. Ahead of Shah’s visit, a small group of farmers protested against the new farm laws. They picketed the deputy commisioner’s office but were soon bundled into police vans.
