In an attempt to please the people at the rally, the prime minister delivered the first few lines of his speech in Kannada.

"Prime Minister Modi won the mandate of the people and the whole world respects him". Responding to the tweets, state BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa hit back saying K'taka has scripted several firsts like corruption, farmers' suicide and collapse of law and order under Siddaramaiah's regime. "Yet, he is talking about Karnataka as a hotbed of crime when we don't even figure in the top 10 of the NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau), which is their own (central) figures", Reddy said. "BJP-ruled states Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra are way ahead", he said. "We are not BJP to go against the constitution", he said.
