PM Modi criticising me to hide his mistakes, says HD Kumaraswamy

Kumaraswamy alleged that Modi targeted him only to hide his failures' in the last four-and-half years.

Bengaluru: Stung by the Prime Minister's jibe that he was remote controlled by the Congress, Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy Wednesday retorted that Narendra Modi should gather enough information about the state, “which has the best programmes in the country,” before speaking in public.

“I never stabbed (anybody) like the BJP did. As prime minister, while talking about a state government, it would have been better had Modi gathered all the information before speaking in public," a visibly upset CM said. Mr Kumaraswamy alleged that Mr Modi targeted him only to hide his ‘failures’ in the last four-and-half years. “He should know that our programmes are the best in the country. Let him gather more information about our government,” he said. He also tweeted, “Respected Prime Minister, I expected you to speak the truth while addressing the people at Kalyana Karnataka, the land of Sharanas who advocated Kayaka Tatva.”

Former chief minister and Congress strongman Siddaramaiah also hit back at Modi. He tweeted, "No individuals can control a CM in democracy. Only people can control them with their votes. Maybe @narendramodi's experience of him being controlled from Nagpur is making him comment against others."
