Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy who is often seen whining about the conduct of the MLAs of the Congress Patry which happens to be the alliance partner of the JD(S) in the State, responded to the PM Modi’s jibe at the Congress-JD(S) that the parties were hurt when air strikes were conducted on Pakistan.

Kumaraswamy retaliated by saying that they were not hurt because the bombs were dropped in some inhabited forest area. Questioning the airstrikes, he said that he came to know about the airstrikes through newspapers only and that the PM did not give full information to the people about the airstrikes. “We do not know anything about the air strike. We read only in the newspapers. You (Modi) did not give the complete information to the people of India about the air strikes”, he said addressing the reporters in Hubbali.
Discrediting PM Modi the Karnataka CM said that the Prime Minister was publicising the air strikes. “He (Modi) publicises it as if he himself carried out the air strike and nobody had ever crossed the Pakistan border in the past,” he added. He compared PM Modi with former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and said that she created Bangladesh while Modi did nothing. “Did Narendra Modi form Bangladesh? It is Indira Gandhi’s gift. What have you (Modi) done?”, questioned Kumaraswamy.
The Karnataka CM also took a dig at PM Modi’s visit to Pakistan when Nawaz Sharif was the Prime Minister of Pakistan. He questioned as to what harmony was established with the country. “You only went there with a shawl to celebrate an event with the (then) prime minister (Nawaz Sharif). What discussions you had there? What harmony you could establish with the Pakistan prime minister whom you gave the shawl?”, he said.
Recently Kumaraswamy had expressed his jealousy about PM Modi’s good looks. He had alleged that the Prime Minister wakes up every morning and applies make-up and wax on his face so that he looks good.
