Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah Saturday asked the people of the state to ensure that Prime Minister Narendra Modi steps down after the Lok Sabha polls, and help Congress leader Rahul Gandhi succeed him.

Claiming that Congress always walks the talk and fulfils the promises made to the people, unlike the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he said the party will fulfil the guarantees announced in its manifesto after coming to power, like it did in Karnataka under his leadership.

"The Congress yesterday announced guarantees. We will fulfil them too. The Congress party always walks the talk, unlike the BJP....you should understand that and try to bring Congress to power at the centre by removing the BJP government. I humbly request you to make Narendra Modi step down and make Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister," Siddaramaiah said.

He was speaking after a road show in Kolar in favour of the Congress candidate after offering prayers at the Kurudumale Ganapathi Temple.

Calling the

BJP "a factory of lies" and asking people not to fall for lies created by the BJP out of fear of defeat, the Chief Minister said that the five guarantee schemes implemented by his government have a five-year warranty.

"We honoured your vote by keeping our word," he said.

Alleging that the Modi government (Centre) has hiked the prices of petrol, diesel, cooking gas cylinders, fertilisers, cooking oil, pulses and vegetables due to which every family in the country is troubled, Siddaramaiah said "In response to this hardship, we announced five guarantee promises to ease it. We came to power and implemented all five."

"At first, the BJP created a lie, that implementation of these guarantees is not possible. But after the guarantees have been implemented, they have created a new lie", he further added.

"They are saying that guarantees will stop. Our guarantees do not stop for any reason.... there is a five-year warranty for Congress guarantees," the Karnataka Chief Minister said.
