New Delhi, May 6: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday yet again hit out at Congress and said that the party does not care about people feelings and Dalits instead they only care about deals. “Congress does not care about ‘Dil’ (people’s hearts and feelings) or Dalits. They only care about deals. If they cannot do welfare, then they should be bid farewell,” PM Modi said while campaigning for Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Karnataka’s Chitradurga.

He also accused the Congress party of misleading people in the name of Dalits saying,”They are obviously uncomfortable. Today the highest offices of the land are occupied by people from poor and humble backgrounds. That is why now Congress prefers to mislead in the name of the Dalit community.” (Also Read: Will You Continue to Send Your Leaders to Dalit Homes With Packed Dinners, Siddaramaiah Asks PM Modi) Also Read - India Toy Fair 2021: 'Use Less Plastic to Make Toys,' PM Modi Tells Industries
“When we had the numbers to play a key role in the election of a President, we did not play party politics. We preferred that Dr. Kalam become the President of India. This time, we had the numbers but we preferred that a person from the Dalit community become the President,” PM stated.

The Prime Minister also attacked Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah saying, “Among the many things the Karnataka CM keeps with him is character certificates. Whenever a Minister faces charges, the CM is ready with a character certificate. He loves defending the wrong kind of people.”
Meanwhile, in the last leg of his campaigning for May 12 polls, the Prime Minister is expected to address rallies in Raichur, JamaKhandi and Hubli area today. Apart from this Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief, Amit Shah will also hold multiple rallies in the poll-bound state. He will hold two public meetings and will take part in a road show in Belagavi.
