New Delhi: Siddaramaiah once again became the topic of jokes on Twitter after the Karnataka Chief Minister was seen dozing away with not a care in the world at a Congress event in Madikeri on Tuesday.
Also known among his critics as a compulsive sleeper, Siddaramaiah was seen sleeping on stage during the party event. Interestingly, the stage had several dignitaries and party workers but despite the CM being seated prominently in the first row, no one thought appropriate to pull him out of what looked like a deep slumber.
Not known to let go off such faux pas, Twitterati burst out in laughter.

Siddaramaiah has been caught sleeping during public events in the past as well. On May 26 of 2017, he was again seated in the front row during a Congress press conference but that did not stop him from getting some shut-eye. And he is hardly alone in list of politicians caught off guard and eyes shut.

Several politicians - some even in Parliament - have been caught having a snooze time out of bed. A few have attempted to justify their sleep and termed it introspection and contemplation. Of course, Twitter had been amusingly unforgiving each time.
PS: Did you know? Work-time nap is officially permitted in Japan.
