UP, Karnataka CMs trade Twitter barbs

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah

Calling chief minister Siddaramaiah insane for criticising Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, Yeddyurappa said that the situation in UP is getting better every passing day and Yogi is busy in cleaning the seven decades old stagnated administration. Many among Hindus consume beef. The Congress government as soon as it came to power, repealed that law.

In an earlier tweet, Siddaramaiah had said, "Yogi Adityanath should first get rid of Jungle Raj in Uttar Pradesh and save children who are dying in the hospital". Taunted by Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah who asked him to use his visit to the state to pick up tips to check starvation deaths back home in UP, Adityanath retorted by referring to farmer suicides and deaths of honest officers in Karnataka.

Speaking at the "Nava Karnataka Parivartan Yatre" rally organised by the Karnataka unit of the BJP here yesterday, the UP Chief Minister took a jibe at Siddaramaiah, saying he was only now recalling his Hindu roots. "It will help you address the starvation deaths sometimes reported from your state", Siddaramaiah tweeted on Sunday.

He further questioned Siddarmaiah as to why he advocates for beef eaters if he was a Hindu. I don't eat beef only because I don't like to. "Let chief minister Yogi Adityanath read what Vivekanada has said before lecturing us about ban on cow slaughter", Mr Siddaramaiah said in a tweet in Kannada.

The ongoing Twitter war between the two is set to escalate in public meetings with the beginning of the countdown to Karnataka assembly elections which are expected to be held in April-May this year. Our Constitution and our laws allow people to eat food of their choice.

"I welcome UP CM Yogi Adityanath to our state". The youth, farmers and cities like Bengaluru need these programmes, and for this Karnataka needs a BJP government, " he had said. This was the second such visit by Adityanath to the state in a month to campaign for the party. CM Adityanath also slammed Siddaramiah's lawlessness remark.

He also said that he had reared cows and asked whether Mr Adityanath, who lectures about cow protection, had done the same.
