Modi is the world’s most lying PM: Siddaramaiah

JD(S) national president H D Deve Gowda and his one-time political protege, Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah came together once again to campaign for their Bangalore North candidate Krishna Byre Gowda on Tuesday.

They shared the stage at Byre Gowda’s home turf of Byatarayanapura, which he represents as a legislator.

"If I win, I’ll work such that you won’t have to worry about who your MLA is,” Byre Gowda said. “I will be your MP, MLA, councillor and gram panchayat member. My old office with the same old furniture and table...that’s where I’ll be. Anyone can come and see me there."

Deve Gowda, while launching an attack on the BJP, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was giving a political spin to the Pulwama episode. "For the Congress-JD(S) alliance in Karnataka to have any meaning, we should win at least 18-20 seats," he said.

On his part, Siddaramaiah hailed Deve Gowda for the work he did when he was prime minister. "Deve Gowda as PM won hearts. But Modi has spent five years just lying. If there’s any PM in the world who lies the most, it is Modi,” he said.
