Prime News, National (Bengaluru), March 27:-BJP chief Amit Shah left his party and its Chief Ministerial candidate in Karnataka, BS Yeddyurappa, red-faced with a slip of tongue today. Within minutes, the video clip containing the gaffe was widely circulated on social media, mostly by Congress supporters.
While rattling off allegations against Karnataka’s Congress government led by Siddaramaiah, Shah said, “Recently a retired Supreme Court judge said if there was ever a competition of the most corrupt government then the Yeddyurappa government is number one…”
Yeddyurappa, who sat next to him, looked stunned, another leader quietly told Shah about the gaffe. Shah immediately corrected himself, but the within minutes, the Congress went into overdrive, tweeting and retweeting the video.
Even Chief Minister Siddaramaiah gleefully took a dig at the BJP chief.
