The Congress has termed as deplorable the attacks by Prime Minister Narendra Modi who called Bengaluru a 'valley of sins." The Congress said that the PM's statement during an election rally had insulted the people of Karnataka.
Bengaluru is the garden city of India and calling it a 'garbage city' is deplorable.
"Building lies comes naturally to you, but you seem to find building cities very difficult. The data nails your lies," he said on Twitter.
"Cosmopolitan, innovative and historic, beautiful Bengaluru, India's pride, is the world's most dynamic city!," he said in another tweet, adding that his government is committed to investing Rs 1 lakh crore to further develop Bengaluru and other cities in Karnataka.
Modi had made a scathing attack on the Siddaramaiah government in Karnataka. He had said that the government had promoted ease of doing murders instead of ease of doing business. He also said that the city had turned into a valley of sin and garbage city.
