Our government did a lot of work in Karnataka. The state received the largest foreign direct investment. Development skyrocketed under our governance in the state. But in a democracy, you have to accept every decision of the people.”
“We humbly accept the people’s mandate in Karnataka. We will identify our mistakes and work to rectify them,” the Union minister added.
