Davangere/Bengaluru: Prime Minister Narendra Modi tore into state Chief Minister Siddaramaraiah on Tuesday at a rally in Davangere, playing on the chief minister's name to tar the Siddaramaiah government as "Seedha Rupaiya Sarkar" that works only for money, as the BJP and Congress unleashed a war of words over corruption in pollbound Karnataka.
The Congress' communications chief Randeep Singh Surjewala used Modi's remark made in 2012, when he had attacked prime minister Manmohan Singh, saying he was "maun (silent) Mohan Singh" who showed no concern over rising prices and plight of the poor people, to target PM Modi himself over his silence on the PNB scam, asking him to turn from "maun (silent) Modi to bol (speaking) Modi".
"Who is responsible for this public loot of money? We, with folded hands, request Prime Minister Narendra Modi… when will you honorable prime minister shift from maun Modi to bol Modi (silent Modi to speaking Modi)," Surjewala said.
