CM Siddaramaiah called Amit Shah ‘brainless’
Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], January 26 (NT): Passing jibes on BJP over its CM candidate for the upcoming elections in Karnataka, Congress' Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday took a dig at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah and tagged him 'a brainless man.'
Addressing to media, the Chief Minister said, "Amit Shah has no brain it seems, he is a brainless man."
Siddaramaiah further took a potshot at the BJP chief on his Twitter handle and dubbed him an "ex-jailbird".
The chief minister's counter attack appears a day after the BJP president stated "Siddaramaiah means corruption and corruption means Siddaramaiah".
"Says an ex-jail bird who chose another former jail bird to be his party's CM candidate for our Karnataka election. Can he present facts about the so called corruption charges against me or my Govt? Just telling lies wont help. People will not believe his #jumlas", tweeted CM Siddaramaiah.
Worth mentioning here Amit Shah was Gujarat’s home minister when he was detained and jailed in 2010 in the Sohrabuddin Shaikh fake encounter case. Shah was found not guilty four years later.
The war of words between the duo has come in the run up to the Karnataka assemblypolls scheduled to held this year.(NT)
