BJP president Amit Shah has justified the allocation of low central funds for southern states, speaking in the context of Karnataka elections. He questioned as to how govt could run the other aspects such as country's army & embassies in foreign countries if govt releases more funds to states. He said, it is the problem with all the states not just the south. He said, Lingayat issue wouldn't fetch Congress in the Karnataka elections while calling it a conspiracy of congress on Yeddyurappa. Amit Shah confidently said, BJP will win the elections and Modi-Yeddyurappa combo will progress Karnataka.
