During a public address in Hungund, in the Bagalkote district of northern Karnataka, he emphasized that he has been dedicated to ensuring social justice for all segments of society, and his efforts have led to a rise of โ‚น1 lakh in the annual per capita income over the last four years.

"I will come back as chief minister again. God has given me an opportunity to serve Mother Karnataka. I have done sincere work," CM Bommai was quoted as saying at an election rally.

The chief minister stated that he is following the principles of "work is worship" and social equality, which were espoused by Basaveshwara, the 12th century social reformer and founder of the Lingayat sect.

"I tried to give social justice to every section of society. People have asked for coorporations of various communities for their overall development. We are treading on the path shown by Basaveshwara,"CM Bommai said.

The chief minister, who is a member of the Lingayat community, referenced Basaveshwara, whose supporters make up a significant portion of Karnataka, particularly in the state's northern region.

Bommai asserted that Karnataka has become the top choice for investment and innovation since the BJP came to power four years ago, thanks to the state government's initiatives.

He stated that the Global Investor's Meet, held last year, resulted in an investment of โ‚น12 lakh crore for the state.

Bommai urged the public to vote for the BJP if they desire to see the state progress towards development.

Congress MLA Rizwan Arshad, mocked Bommai's ambition to retain power in Karnataka. Arshad criticized the chief minister, claiming that neither Prime Minister Narendra Modi nor Union Home Minister Amit Shah even mention Bommai in their discussions.

"The home minister and the prime minister don't even mention him,"Arshad said.

"Even Murugesh Rudrappa Nirani (Minister of Large and Medium Industries of Karnataka) aspires to become the chief minister," the Congress MLA said.

Additionally, the Congress MLA remarked that the BJP is hesitant to announce a candidate for the chief minister's position in Karnataka because of their actions in the state.
