A Twitter battle between a Chief Minister and a chief ministerial candidate was one of the highlights of Sunday. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Bengaluru on Sunday to address the valedictory of the Parivartana Yatra.
A few hours before Modi arrived, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah welcomed him with a tweet. He welcomed the PM to the most progressive state which is also the top in investments and job creations.
B S Yeddyurappa however decided to hit back and in a tweet said that Karnataka is the number 1 corrupt state.
Siddaramaiah however decided to hit back at Yeddyurappa and called his statement a great irony. " Says a man who presided over India's biggest mining scam during his rule. Only a person totally lacking in Kannada Swabhiman can call Karnataka, one of the most progressive states in India as the number 1 corrupt state," Siddaramaiah said.
