Bengaluru (Karnataka): Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday took a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah after the latter mistakenly referred their chief ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa’s government as the “most corrupt” one.
“He has spoken the truth and he is right,” Siddaramaiah told reporters while responding to Shah’s gaffe.
Earlier in the day, Shah, who was addressing the press after the Election Commission (EC) announced the dates for the Karnataka elections, said, “If there were ever a competition for the most corrupt government then the (BJP’s) Yeddyurappa government would come first”.
Shah was immediately informed about the gaffe following which he corrected himself.
Karnataka will go to polls on May 12, and the results will be declared on May 15. (ANI)
