According to the graphic, Karnataka ranked 11th in investment attraction in 2013 while it tops the list in 2018. It further says that the energy production capacity has increased from 5,361 MW in 2013 to 9,349 MW in 2018.
The graphic shows that Karnataka has done better on all fronts such as tackling infant malnutrition, budget outlay, creation of MBBS seats, building of houses and pure drinking water.
Rahul Gandhi is slated to visit Basavanagudi, Shivajinagar and Hebbal in poll-bound Karnataka on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, at a rally in Bangarpet in Karnataka on Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused members of Congress party of being loyal to 10 Janpath in Delhi and not to the people of the country.
The Prime Minister said that Congress has lost wherever elections have been held in recent past. He said that the mindset of the Congress party is that when they win elections, people give them the license to do corruption.
“Now it is Karnataka’s turn to bid farewell to Congress…Congress has decimated the pride of Karnataka in the last five years. They are now spoiling the future of the state,” said Prime Minister Modi in his election campaign rally.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi had also targeted Janata Dal Secular (JDS), the party of former prime minister HD Deve Gowda. He had asked the party to make it clear to the people if they were with the BJP or against it.
