BENGALURU: Narendra Modi is unfit to be the Prime Minister of India, said Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
“PM Modi is not speaking like a prime minister. There are so many issues concerning the state and the country but he has not opened his mouth,” said Siddaramaiah.
The veteran Congress leader, who's eyeing a second chief ministerial tenure in poll-bound Karnataka, was speaking to media persons on Tuesday.
“He is making politically motivated and irresponsible statements. He is unfit to continue as PM,” he added.
Taking to Twitter, the Karnataka Chief Minister further accused the PM Modi of making common men stand in queues during demonetisation while Nirav Modi is on the run with country's money.
Dear PM @narendramodi ರವರೆ, since you are fond of talking about commission let me ask you-
You made common people stand in queues to deposit their money in the Banks & then let #NiravModi run away with over 12,000 cr of people’s money.
What percent of people’s money is that? pic.twitter.com/whvsOIFYEi

This is not the first time that the Karnataka CM spoke out openly against the Prime Minister.
Earlier this month, Siddaramaiah had said Modi “is morally not right to be the Prime Minister of the country”. His comment came a day after PM Modi vowed to wipe Congress out of Karnataka at a rally in Bengaluru. He had further targeted BJP president Amit Shah, saying he is “involved in murder case” and attacked former Karnataka CM and BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa for being arrested in the past.
Both the Congress and BJP has been targetting each other on the social media and political rallies over the last two months ahead of the Karnataka Assembly polls, scheduled to be held later this year.
