BJP, Cong engage in bitter Twitter war

A section of Dalit leaders creating a ruckus during BJP national president Amit Shah's meeting with Dalit leaders in Mysuru on Friday triggered a bitter Twitter war between the Congress and the BJP.

The Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee, in a tweet, said "Amit Shah, why can't you answer legitimate questions raised today (Friday) in Mysuru about BJP Minister Ananth Kumar Hegde insulting Dalits? Why haven't you taken any action against your party man for such derogatory comments? This clearly shows that BJP endorses his hate-mongering."

The BJP hit back in a tweet, saying "Not able to digest the fact that BJP has become the default choice of Dalits in the country, CM Siddu resorted to one more cheap gimmick." "He sent his goons to create ruckus in Shri @AmitShah's public meeting." "Gosh! Is there a contest b/w you and Mamata on who is more worst? (sic)" it said.

BJP MP Pratap Simha in a tweet said "Dear @CMofKarnataka n @INCKarnataka your party workers tried to create ruckus in @AmitShah ji's program. We can do the same in every program you attend. Better stop it."
