Davanagere, March 27: In a major slip of tongue, BJP national president Amit Shah on Tuesday termed his party’s chief ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa as “the most corrupt CM in the country”.

Addressing a press conference, in the poll-bound Karnataka the BJP President stated”Recently a retired Supreme Court judge said if there was a competition for the most corrupt government, “Yeddyurappa government shall be given number one award”.

Reacting to this, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, CM Siddaramaiah and Congress social media head Ramya ‘appreciated’ Shah for “speaking the truth”.

Another party leader sitting next to Shah immediately informed him about the goof up and Shah then corrected himself and said that he meant “Siddaramaiah would come first in a competition for the most corrupt government”.

Taking a jibe at Shah, Gandhi tweeted “Gifted to us by the BJP President, our campaign in Karnataka is off to a fabulous start. He says Yeddyurappa ran the most corrupt Govt ever…”.

Meanwhile, Ramya said in a tweet “who knew the BJP President could also speak the truth- we all concur with you Amit ji, BSYBJP is the most corrupt”.

Congress leader and present chief minister Siddaramaiah called the saffron party’s president “the Shah of Lies” and stated he’s finally speaking the truth.

Earlier in a day, the Election Commission announced the dates for the Karnataka elections, as polling will take place on May 12, 2018 and counting of votes to be held on 15 May, 2018.
