The Congress government led by Siddaramaiah would be ‘sent home’ on May 15 and people would vote for strengthening Prime Minister Modi’s hands to build the nation, BJP president Amit Shah said on Tuesday.

Addressing a gathering here after holding a road show, Shah also said many Hindus had been ‘murdered’ in Dakshina Kannada district and no arrests were made.

It was time to throw out the Congress government in the state, he said.

The roadshow in the city was held as part of the campaign for BJP’s Mangaluru South candidate, Vedavyas Kamath.

Shah held another rally at Kavoor after the road show in the city.

He asked the people to choose B S Yeddyurappa as Chief Minister, “who will track down the murderers of Hindus.”

Shah also led a road show from Kolya to Thokkottu to campaign for Mangaluru (Ullal) BJP candidate Santhosh Rai Boliyar.

Thousands of BJP workers took part in the rally.

Police stopped the rally at Ullal circle, much to the disappointment of party workers who wanted it to proceed to Thokkottu Shah who was in his rally vehicle, took the camera of a newspaper photographer and clicked pictures of BJP workers in the rally.
