Flanked by key ministers of his Cabinet at the press conference, Siddaramaiah charged that Modi was "supporting and facilitating corruption" while saying that the Centre was yet to appoint a Lokpal. Asking the BJP to contest the elections in the state with "dignity" on the "basis of facts", he said that the allegations must be substantiated with facts.

Ahead of Assembly polls, the battle between Karnataka's ruling Congress and opposition BJP has taken an ugly turn, with the bitterness spilling over to social media. He termed the Siddaramaiah government at the exit gate.

"I have been told that Karnataka government is being recognised as 10% government as no work is possible without 10% commission", PM Modi told the gathering at Bengaluru's Palace Grounds.

"Mr Modi as a PM has lied to the people of the state and misled them by giving wrong information".

Making a poll pitch to the state's farmers, Modi said the Budget presented by the Centre shows the BJP's commitment to the rural sector.

Siddaramaiah questioned Modi's understanding of the Constitution, saying he and BJP chief Shah were unaware of the difference between a state's share from taxes and grants given by the Union government. "But nobody should make personal comments", Mr Siddaramaiah said. "We have no hesitation in taking on Modi", said Dinesh Gundu Rao, Working President, KPCC. This was in response to the BJP repeatedly pointing out that the state had received Rs 3 lakh crore.

Earlier, the state Congress upped the ante against the prime minister accusing him of lying. "As per 14th finance commission, in last three years we were supposed to get 95.200 crore, whereas we got 84.500 crores, so they have to give 10,000 crores".

The Chief Minister welcomed the Prime minister to Bengaluru, and asked him help the State resolve the Mahadayi water dispute.
