In a goof up not likely to be let go by ruling Congress in poll bound Karnataka, the BJP president Amit Shah mistakenly termed the ‘Yeddyurappa’ government as most corrupt government in the country.
This he said as Yeddyurappa was sitting by his side in the press conference itself.
The totally unexpected statement left the leader baffled and it took some nudging by the party leaders to make Amit Shah realize the goof up and he later corrected himself to name Siddharamiah, current chief minister of Karnataka, as corrupt government.
Incidentally, B S Yeddyurappa is also chief ministerial candidate for the BJP party in Karnataka.
Thereafter, Shah continued his criticism of the ruling Congress party in the state.
He went on to allege that the Karnataka Chief Minister Siddharamiah wears a wristwatch worth Rs 40 lakh.
He also defended the central government and its role in ensuring all round development of the Karnataka state.>
