Mysuru (Karnataka) [India], Mar 30 (NT): After his recent guff where he called his Karnataka Chief Ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa the 'most corrupt', BJP chief Amit Shah on Friday said that he might have made a mistake, but voters will not do the same in the upcoming state assembly elections.
Accepting his slip-up, while addressing Navashakti Samavesh of three assembly constituencies here, the BJP chief hit out at the Congress party for rejoicing his faux pas.
"In a slip of tongue, I said that Yeddyurappa Government is corrupt instead of Siddaramaiah's, and the entire the Congress party started to rejoice. I want to tell Rahul Gandhi, that I might have made a mistake but the people of Karnataka will not," Shah said.
Further raising question on Congress President Rahul Gandhi's leadership, Shah said that the party defeated all elections since 2014 and now its Karnataka's turn to elect the BJP government in the state.
Earlier, while addressing in the Press briefing, the BJP chief took on Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, over the alleged killing of BJP and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers in the state and said that the justice will be ensured to the victims once his party BJP comes to power.
"I condemn the killing of BJP and RSS workers under the Congress party rule. More than 24 workers have died and the police have not taken any action against the killers, they are roaming around free," Shah said while addressing the media.
The Karnataka Assembly elections will take place on May 12, while the counting of votes will be held on May 15.
