Siddaramaiah calls PM Modi, Adityanath as 'North Indian imports', BJP loses cool

By Chennabasaveshwar

Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah took a jibe against the state BJP for inviting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath to campaign in assembly elections. Siddaramaiah termed PM Modi and UP CM Adityanath as 'North Indian import' in his tweet.

Siddaramaiah and Narendra Modi

"Karnataka BJP by waiting for North Indian imports like PM Modi, UPCM Adityanath is admiting they have no leaders in the state. They have reduced their CM face @BSYBJP to a dummy. PM may come & go. Here it is Siddaramaiah vs BSY & you know who is winning. " Siddaramaiah tweeted.

BJP hit back at Siddaramaiah in as series of scathing tweets. Siddaramaiah was asked how much low he could stoop.

"Imports? How much lower can you stoop Mr. CM? Your attempt at North-South divide is disgusting. But we understand your anxiety. While you are rejected by your own constituents, PM Modi has a pan India appeal. It's time you learn a thing or two about leadership when he's here.

In a veiled attack against Sonia Gandhi, BJP stated that what Siddaramaiah has to say about the occupants of 10 Janpath while speaking of imports.

"Well, speaking of imports, what do you have to say about the occupants of 10 JP? We can understand your frustration & desperation Mr. CM. When you realize PM Modi is more popular than you are even in your own Chamundeshwari, these kind of outbursts are natural."

Also, the BJP did not spare Karnataka Congress in charge KC Venugopal in its reply.

" Now, we think it is time we teach CM definition of 'Import': bring (goods or services) into a country from abroad. For ex: when you get Italian toiletries for your Bengaluru bathroom, it's import. Not 'Import': When you get rape accused KC Venu from Kerala as Karnataka Incharge".
