The BJP chief also exuded confidence over saffron party's win in the assembly elections and said that the party will form the government in the state with full majority.

"Of course, it is a great deal, it's absolutely a smashing deal for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and you can see the effects of it in the amount of money being thrown around in the state (polls)". Such is the arrogance of the "naamdhaar" (dynast). Political pundits wrote him off as a lightweight, reluctant politician who didn't stand a chance in Indian politics.

"You would have seen Modiji speaking bad about (chief minister) Siddaramaiahji, (Mallikarjun) Khargeji and me. Until the Congress party was in power, Baba Saheb was not given Bharat Ratna", the Prime Minister remarked.

"People of Karnataka will not forgive the Congress for this".

Sharply criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chidambaram said he should maintain the dignity of his post. These stats show that Congress has an advantage over BJP in forming the next government. "Madam Mino, Karnataka does not need to learn from any person who is responsible for wasting of India since last 10 years". "As a leader of the political party, it is my job to visit the religious institution that invites me. To stop the OBC Commission getting constitutional status, they did not allow the Parliament to function", he said.
