"Though the BJP-led NDA government has formulated 116 schemes for the OBCs across the country, unfortunately, they have not been reaching the intended beneficiaries in Karnataka due to non-cooperation of the state government", charged Shah without naming the ruling Congress.

With the Karnataka elections closing in, a war of words between the political parties has become a daily event.

The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday made fun of Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah by tweeting a picture of him with a lemon in hand. "Hypocrisy thy name is @Siddaramaiah". But the BJP was prepared with old visuals of Siddaramaiah holding a lemon while taking over as the Chief Minister of Karnataka. That this is not a superstition is known to all Kannadigas.

On 3 April, the Congress president would visit people at Bus Stand Chowk and address a public gathering in Shivamogga. It does not demean any Hindu tradition. "It does not demean any Hindu tradition Learn about Karnataka before tweeting young fellows".

Speaking to reporters, he said "Let me tell Siddaramaiah that you have not even four-five outstanding areas of achievements which you can convey (to the public). you go everywhere (portraying) a negative BJP and negative Yeddyurappa".

"In this connection, attention is also invited to Section 126A of the R.P. Act 1951, which prohibits conduct of Exit Polls and dissemination of their results during the period reckoned from the commencement of polls and half an hour after the close of poll in the state", it said.

Replying on fake news, BJP said, "Does fake claims on development also qualify as #FakeNews?" If it does, you'll be the worst hit! "The Chief #FakeNews peddler looks already scared".
