Karnataka Chief Minister Siddarmaiah on Saturday hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'PPP' jibe at the Congress party and said BJP is a 'Prison', 'Price Rise' and 'Pakoda' party.

"After May 15 (when poll results will be declared), Indian National Congress will be reduced to 'PPP Congress'-- P for Punjab, P for Puducherry, and P for Parivar (family)," Modi told an election rally in Gadag, where he predicted the state's ruling party would be decimated in the elections.

Retorting to this, Siddarmaiah tweted, "Dear Modi avare (Ji), Heard you spun a new abbreviation 'PPP' today. Sir, we have always championed the 3 Ps of democracy - 'Of the People, By the People, For the People'. While your party is a 'Prison', 'Price Rise' & 'Pakoda' party. Am I right, Sir?"

Modi said despite a string of electoral losses in Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, and Tripura the Congress was not as worried as it is now when defeat stares it in the face.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also spoke about Mahadayi river issue while addressing public meeting Gadag district on Saturday.

"Sonia Gandhi told asked the people of Goa to vote for Congress if they don't want Mahadayi river water to be released to Karnataka," PM said. "We are committed to resolving the issue with consultations," he said.
