In a separate statement, Siddaramaiah also took a firm stand against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ongoing 'Developed India' campaign. He predicted that the campaign would face defeat in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The Chief Minister criticized Modi's claim of having achieved a developed nation status, arguing that a truly developed society would be one without class distinctions or caste barriers, and would actively work towards equality.

Siddaramaiah questioned the Modi administration's contributions to the welfare of farmers and the poor over the past decade. He further challenged Modi’s earlier promises by vowing to recover black money stashed abroad by the rich and return it to the public, promising to deposit ₹15 lakh into each citizen’s bank account within a hundred days.
