The national general secretary of the Bharatiya Janata Party H.N. Ananth Kumar said here on Tuesday that the BJP is going to the Lok Sabha polls with what he said was a “positive agenda” including linking of rivers.

Addressing presspersons he said that the other agenda in the campaign for the polls included eradicating unemployment, strengthening border security, improving law and order in the country, taking up large infrastructure projects (which he did not specify) and reducing prices.

He said that the BJP was requesting the electorate to give it full mandate to form a stable government. A government formed with alliance partners had its own limitations, he said.

To a question Mr. Kumar reiterated that even if the BJP got absolute majority in the coming elections, the NDA (National Democratic Alliance) and the “extended NDA” would remain.

Claiming that there was a Modi wave in Karnataka he alleged that the Congress leader and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah talking about the lack of a Modi wave showed that the Congress was desperate about losing elections in the State.

He claimed that after the Assembly elections last year the Congress was had lost ground in the State in a year due to what he said was poor performance. Mr. Kumar quoted the former Chief Minister and Congress leader S.M. Krishna’ s recent interview that Congress’s honeymoon was over in the State.
