Amit Shah's gaffe: 'Yeddyurappa govt. should get No. 1 award for corruption'

BJP national president Amit Shah has embarrassed the party's Chief Ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa with a slip of the tongue.

“Recently, a retired Supreme Court judge said if there was ever a competition of the most corrupt government, then the Yeddyurappa government is number one...” said Shah, inadvertently, while addressing a press conference.

 The comment has shocked Yeddyurappa and the BJP leadership. BJP MP Pralhad Joshi immediately corrected Shah by saying into his ear, “Siddaramaiah government.” Realising his gaffe, Shah corrected himself and said: ”Arre re...Siddaramaiah government is number one in corruption.”

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah then tweeted, saying that the BJP president had spoken the ‘truth.’ He wrote: “The #ShahOfLies finally speaks truth. Thank you @AmitShah.” Shah is in Karnataka, where assembly elections will take place on May 12 with the vote counting set for May 15.

The #ShahOfLies finally speaks truth. Thank you @AmitShah
