As the tenure of Karnataka assembly is nearing an end, the state is gearing up for elections. All the participating political outfits are busy preparing their winning strategies and putting them to action. And amidst all this, war of words happening between the leaders of opposing parties is not a new thing we get to see.
On January 7, Uttar Pradesh chief minister arrived in poll bound Karnataka for carrying out a massive rally. In his speech at the rally, Yogi appeared in the attacking mode on the present government. He raised issues like beef ban, digital India, better growth prospects for the state, among others.
Hours after Yogi’s rally in Bengaluru concluded, Karnataka chief minister Siddaramaiah took to Twitter welcoming him and tried advising him about governance. In the tweet, he mentioned the issue of starvation deaths and appeared to be making an attempt to disgrace UP CM. Take a look at Siddaramaiah’s tweet below:
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. #YogiInBengaluru https://t.co/lj0m4fMphC

There is no possibility that Yogi could have taken it. He tweeted back and his response was truly epic in all the ways. Here is what Yogi tweeted:
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.

Isn’t Yogi Adityanath’s response to the Karnataka CM epic? At the BJP rally on January 7, saffron-clad Yogi was the star campaigner of BJP, seen as the Hindutva mascot of the party. At the rally, he accused the CM of pushing the development of the state by 5 years and targeted him for recalling his Hindu roots.
