Narendra Modi & I are poles apart: Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah
Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday dismissed the controversial statement of a key cabinet colleague comparing him with Narendra Modi, saying he and the Gujarat Chief Minister are poles apart.
"BJP is praising him to the hilt but Modi can never be a social face," he commented, a day after Housing Minister and actor-politician M H Ambarish said Siddaramaiah is like Modi to the Congress.
Ambarish, in-charge of district of Mandya where Lok Sabha bypoll would be held tomorrow, also reportedly said: "A day will come when Siddaramaiah will be made to tour the entire country. I have a mole on my tongue. Hence, whatever I say will come true".
The Chief Minister said, "....We are like north pole and south pole. This (comparison) issue is something that I can`t even think of in my dream and mind".
Siddaramaiah, who completes 100 days in office tomorrow, said even if Ambarish made the statement with good intention, the comparison between him and Modi is "irrelevant".
The Congress leader was speaking at a function on the occasion of the 98th birth anniversary of former Chief Minister Devaraj Urs at Banquet Hall of Vidhan Soudha, the state secretariat, where he presented the Devaraj Urs award for 2013 to socialist leader and former legislator Konandur Lingappa.
