According to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, dynasty politics would reach an all-time high in Karnataka if the Congress wins the state's next election, and the state will be "afflicted with riots." Speaking to a crowd in Terdal in the Belagavi district, the former BJP president added that if the Congress becomes the government, the state's growth will be in "reverse gear." Shah said that only the BJP can guide the state towards a "New Karnataka" in an effort to win the people's support for "political stability" in Karnataka, which will vote on May 10.

According to the Minister, the "internal fight" within the Congress over who should be the Chief Minister (should the party win the election) between former CM Siddaramaiah and Congress state president D K Shivakumar is still going on. "Why engage in pointless conflict when neither of them will succeed as chief minister. Because the BJP will have the next chief minister, your number isn't even there, Shah said.
