New Delhi, May 5: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying you talk a lot but the problem is your actions don’t match your words.
Targeting PM Modi, Gandhi posted a video on Twitter asking the prime minister when will he speak on his top 11 leaders who are facing corruption cases and 8 tickets given to Reddy brothers.
Dear Modi ji,
You talk a lot. Problem is, your actions don’t match your words. Here's a primer on your candidate selection in Karnataka.

The video plays like an episode of “Karnataka’s Most Wanted”.
The clip named B. Sriamulu, G. Somashekara Reddy, T.H. Suresh Babu, Katta Subramanya Naidu, C.T. Ravi, Murugesh Nirani, ES EN Krishnaiah Shetty Malur, K. Shivanagouda Naik, R. Ashok, and Shobha Karandlaje as the 11 BJP candidates facing criminal cases.
“Waiting for your reply. PS: You can refer to a paper for answers,” it said.
Earlier in a day, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also attacked the PM over BJP’s “ethics of using the Reddy brothers to win an election”.
Siddaramaiah challenged the Prime Minister to speak on tickets given to Reddy brothers. He tweeted “Dear PM Narendra Modi avare, I am glad you have made corruption an issue in this Election because that is your weakest point. You are making baseless allegations of corruption about our Govt”.
”Can you speak for 5 minutes on the ethics of using the Reddy Bros’ to win an election?, the Karnataka Chief Minister asked.
On Friday, the Supreme Court rejected a plea by mining scam accused Janardhana Reddy seeking permission for campaigning in Bellary for the upcoming Karnataka Assembly elections. The apex court said he doesn’t have to enter Bellary as a bail condition.
The attack ahead of crucial state assembly elections which is all set to be held May 12, while counting will take place on May 15.
