Bengaluru: Yet another incident of friction between the Union government and the Congress-led Karnataka government, CM Siddaramaiah took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after Prime Minister’s criticism against Congress led government by Siddaramaiah accusing it to be a ’10 percent commission government, Chief Minister verbally attacked the Prime Minister on Tuesday asking him to perform what he talks.
He also added that he was happy about the speech on corruption by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and invited him to “walk the talk”. With this, Siddaramaiah listed down four major controversies for the Prime Minister to start off with his action. These issues include investigation into Judge Loya’s death, probe on ascend of Amit Shah’s son Jay Shah, appointment of Lok Pal and the appointment of untainted person as BJP’s CM candidate in Karnataka.
Siddaramaih also pointed out that people were expecting the prime minister to speak on the Mahadayi dispute but there was no mention of the water sharing dispute in his speech.
“Modi should realise he is also the Prime Minister of the country. Instead, he made irresponsible allegations saying we were running a 10 per cent commission government. I want him to produce documents for this. He should instead ask his Chief Minister candidate BS Yedyurappa who was in jail for corruption charges about his tenure as former Chief Minister” he said.
