Bengaluru: Hitting back at the Prime Minister for his “2+1 formula” jibe at him, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday said Narendra Modi's formula to win the assembly election in the state is “2 Reddys + 1 Yeddy”.
Responding to Modi's attack at an election rally earlier in the day on him contesting from two constituencies “with fear of losing” and also over fielding his son for the May 12 polls, he also pointed out that the PM had contested from two seats during 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Attacking Modi over BJP fielding brothers of tainted mining baron G Janrdhan Reddy in the assembly elections, the Chief Minister said “2 Reddys + 1 Yeddy was Modi’s formula to win election”.
“Addressing a rally at Santhemarahalli in Chamarajanagara district, Modi termed Siddarammaiah contesting from two seats, and his son Yatindra also contesting the May 12 polls as Kannada version of Congress’ family politics. He said “I was reading newspaper couple of day’s ago and I found that in Karnataka 2+1 formula is going on. This is nothing but Kannada version of Congress’ family politics.”
