BJP party president Amit Shah launched a blistering attack at the Siddaramaiah-led Congress government on Tuesday just a short while after the Election Commission announced that the state would go to polls on May 12 and counting would take place on May 15.
Speaking at Karnataka's Davanagere, Amit Shah said the following:
