In run up to the Assembly election, BJP Karnataka Twitter account is winning the Internet

As we inch closer to the Karnataka legislative assembly elections, the social media team of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Karnataka, is winning the Internet by giving witty and tongue-in-cheek replies to Congress and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. Here are some of the tweets which caught our attention:

Karnataka Congress recently put out a series of tweets called ‘Yeddyurappa for Dummies’, in an attempt to mock BJP Karnataka President. To that, the BJP Karnataka’s official Twitter handle gave stinging rebuttals.

In the first post in the series, INC Karnataka had accused Yeddyurappa of corruption stating that he was sent to prison for ‘accepting bribes’. In their own words, BJP Karnataka hit the ball out of the park.

BJP Karnataka went on to explain to Congress President Rahul Gandhi the difference between judicial custody and jail upon conviction, with an example.

If that wasn’t enough, they gave another example, something that might help him understand the situation better, considering he was the subject.

The second point raised by Karnataka Congress was accusing Yeddyurappa of being anti-farmer. To that, BJP Karnataka quipped and reminded Congress of the number of farmers who committed suicide during Siddaramaiah regime.

Then they accused Yeddyurappa with financial instability claiming how he mismanaged Karnataka’s finances and Siddaramaiah had to pay off those loans. BJP Karnataka, however, was ready with a comeback. They counter-accused Siddaramaiah of incurring more debt in the five years he has been the chief minister of Karnataka than the all previous chief ministers combined, taking debt per Kannadiga to Rs. 44,769.

Finally, on the topic of governance, BJP Karnataka hit back with comparing Congress talking against corruption to that of Pakistan talking against terrorism.

As the electoral battleground heats up in Karnataka, we look forward to a nail-biting climax.
