"There is a lot you can learn from us Sir".
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Sunday engaged in a war of words on Twitter, signalling the beginning of a political battle between the Congress and the BJP in poll-bound Karnataka.
It all started after Adityanath launched a scathing attack against Siddaramaiah for calling himself a Hindu and Siddaramiah replied by telling Yogi about the Karnataka model of governance with a reference to a reported starvation death in UP. It's an organized conspiracy to malign the Yogi Adityanath government. "I heard (the) number of farmers committing suicide in Karnataka was highest in your regime, not to mention the numerous deaths and transfer of honest officers", he wrote.
Noting that the BJP was ruling in 19 states and as a coalition partner in five more states across the country, he said his party had wrested power from the Congress in Himachal Pradesh and won in Gujarat for a record sixth time exclusively on the development plank.More news: Nintendo Switch Sales Top Wii U In Japan

It is second time Adityanath attended and addressed a BJP rally in the state after he did on December 21 at Hubballi.
If he (Siddaramaiah) is a Hindu, why did he and the Congress party oppose the bill?.
At the rally, the saffron-robed Chief Minister accused Mr Siddaramaiah of pushing development in the state by five years.
The performance of the BJP-led NDA alliance at the Centre onpoverty alleviation and job creation is poor, he said, adding thatthe State's BJP leaders were under an "illusion" that they can coaston the so-called popularity of Mr. Modi and come to power here. "When we were in power in Karnataka, we had enacted a law prohibiting cow slaughter".
