Kumaraswamy terms Rahul Gandhi 'fake devout'

Kumaraswamy terms Rahul Gandhi 'fake devout'

State JD(S) president H D Kumaraswamy took to twitter on Saturday to take a swipe at Congress president Rahul Gandhi who is touring in the Mysuru region.

Taunting Rahul (in a war of words), Kumaraswamy demanded the Congress leader to clear the air on the charges he had made against the JD(S) recently. Rahul, who visited Hassan as part of his election campaign recently, had branded the JD(S) as BJP's 'B' team. He had accused the JD(S) of giving "back door" support to the BJP in the upcoming Assembly elections.

Kumaraswamy had countered Rahul's charges by terming the Congress as JD(S)'s 'B' team. Notwithstanding Rahul's silence, Kumaraswamy has now tried to elicit a response from the former.

"You have come to the land of Goddess Chamundi - Mysuru. After facing a massive defeat across the state, you have now shed your atheistism to don the fake/deceptive "devout" role as part of your temple run. Last time when you were in Karnataka, you had made childish remarks against the JD(S). I had given you a befitting reply. I am now awaiting your response, as it is important for people to know the truth. If you don't respond, then it will be a 'hit-and-run' statement. You will come to known as 'hit-and-run Rahul' -- not just 'Temple run Rahul'. May Goddess Chamundi, who inspired me to make a come back into politics after my surgery, also rid you of your immaturity," Kumaraswamy's tweet read.
