Don't need to learn Hindutva from Yogi Adityanath, a Nathuram Godse supporter: Siddaramaiah

NEW DELHI: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah fired another round of salvo at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday in the ongoing war of words between the two leaders on micro-blogging site Twitter.

This time, the Congress leader called Adityanath a 'Nathuram Godse supporter' and asked him to read up Swami Vivekananda's principles.

On Sunday, the two leaders sparred on Twitter, signalling the beginning of a political battle between the Congress and the BJP in poll-bound Karnataka.

While addressing a massive rally in Bengaluru, BJP leader Adityanath accused Siddaramaiah of "endorsing beef eaters" despite being a Hindu and intermixing religion with politics.

Hours after this, Siddaramaiah took to social media raking the issue of 'starvation deaths' in UP.

“I welcome UP CM Shri @myogiadityanath to our state. There is a lot you can learn from us Sir. When you are here please visit a Indira Canteen & a ration shop. It will help you address the starvation deaths sometimes reported from your state,” wrote Siddaramaiah.

Responding to the jibe, the UP chief minister tweeted back: “Thank you for the welcome @siddaramaiah ji. I heard number of farmers committing suicide in Karnataka was highest in your regime, not to mention the numerous deaths and transfer of honest officers. As UP CM I am working to undo the misery and lawlessness unleashed by your allies.”

Assembly elections in Karnataka is expected to be held in the first half of 2018.
