Reacting to Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s suggestions on eradicating poverty and farmers’ suicides today on Twitter, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath responded in kind late on Sunday night. The UP CM highlighted the issue of farmers’suicide and transfer of honest officers in Karnataka. His tweet said, “Thank you for the welcome @siddaramaiah ji. I heard number of farmers committing suicide in Karnataka was highest in your regime, not to mention the numerous deaths and transfer of honest officers. As UP CM I am working to undo the misery and lawlessness unleashed by your allies.”

Earlier today Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had taken to Twitter to give UP CM tips on ways to eradicate poverty in Uttar Pradesh. Siddaramaiah tweeted, “I welcome UP CM Shri @myogiadityanath to our state. There is a lot you can learn from us Sir. When you are here please visit a Indira Canteen & a ration shop. It will help you address the starvation deaths sometimes reported from your state.”

Siddaramaiah also tweeted, “We welcome dignitaries from other states to come, and learn from CM @siddaramaiah’s Karnataka Model of Governance. We’re solving historical challenges in HDI with a robust welfare program, and India’s most effective Industrial policies.”

The war of words escalated between the two chief ministers as the assembly elections in Karnataka are getting nearer – they will be held in April-May 2018 to elect members of the 224 constituencies in the state. Earlier in the day, Adityanath in his Nava Karnataka Nirmana Parivarthana Yatra said, “Karnataka will benefit like Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh if it is also ruled by the BJP, which is heading the NDA government at the Centre under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.” Addressing a rally of about 50,000 people today, the UP CM spoke in Hindi and said that Karnataka stagnated in development over the last four years under the Congress, which had failed to implement various schemes of the Modi government.
