Mysuru : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday lashed out at Karnataka’s Siddaramaiah government over corruption, saying new scams and charges of graft were surfacing “every day” under its watch.

Addressing a BJP rally here, Modi said after he levelled the “10 per cent commission” charge against the Siddaramaiah dispensation recently, he received many calls, with people disputing his information about the cut it received, and claiming it was much more, reports PTI.

“I can understand the anger of the people of Karnataka,” he said, and asked the gathering whether the state wanted a “commission or a mission government.” Karnataka, he insisted, wanted a “mission government” and not a “commission government.”

In a stinging attack on the Siddaramaiah government at a public rally in Karnataka on February 4, Modi had accused it of setting new records in corruption and said the countdown for its exit had begun.  “The Congress government is at the exit gate,” Modi had said, while dubbing the Siddaramaiah dispensation a “10 per cent commission government.”

In his second rally this month in poll-bound Karnataka, Modi said the Congress, wherever it was in power, it was acting like “bumps” in the path of speedy progress.
