Taking on the responses by the BJP leaders after the Tripura polls results, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday said ‘there is no Modi wave’ in the state.
In a series of tweet, Mr Siddaramaiah has criticised the BJP for projecting former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa to lead the party in Karnataka. He said Mr Yeddyurappa was involved in many scams and how will he provide a stable, corruption-free governance in the state.
“BJP for Karnataka has to worry about convincing voters here how former ‘JailBird’ BS Yeddyurappa, who presided over mining loot, illegal denotification of Bengaluru lands and cash-for-MLA scam called Operation Kamala, can provide stable corruption free governance”, Mr Siddaramaiah tweeted.
In another tweet, he mocked that there is an ‘excitement’ in media about the poll result in Tripura and its implications for Karnataka and added that BJP has lost assembly segments in over 50 Lok Sabha seats and has won only about 2 Lok Sabha seats.
“Post Tripura, there is excitement in media about the results’ implications for Karnataka. Since 2014 Lok Sabha results the BJP has lost Assembly segments in over 50 Lok Sabha seats and has won only about two Lok Sabha seats”, he tweeted. He said there is no Modi wave in Karanataka and asked his party workers not lose perspective.
