A few minutes before Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special plane touched down at Bengaluru, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah took a jibe at the PM in a tweet welcoming him to the state.
That tweet drew BJP’s CM face B S Yeddyurappa’s ire. Siddaramaiah once again hit back at him in another tweet. The second half of Sunday was action-packed in poll-bound Karnataka.
Tweets and counter-tweets have heightened the poll pitch. On Monday, after coming out of the last joint session of his government, Siddaramaiah attacked PM Modi in a press meet. His actions have proved that he is now making it a Siddaramaiah versus Modi election.
The BJP’s CM face B S Yeddyurappa has now been relegated to second place.
Never in the recent history of Karnataka, has the Congress depended so much on its CM to retain power at any cost. The election leadership has shifted from New Delhi to the state.moneycontrol
