Bharatiya Janata Party Karnataka State President and Former CM BS Yeddyurappa made controversial comments, says Air Strikes will help BJP win 22 seats out of 28 seats in Karnataka in upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

After much outrage in social media he tries to clarify the remarks he made earlier. BS Yeddyurappa tweeted “My statement is being reported out of context. I said that ‘situation favourable for BJP’ which i am saying for last couple of months. This is not first time that i said BJP in Karnataka will win minimum 22 seats under the able leadership of Modi ji.”

On Wednesday speaking to media Yeddyurappa said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said he would avenge the killings [in the Pulwama terror attack]. The whole country has welcomed this and so have the opposition parties. Youth are dancing and celebrating. The result of this is that it is easy for us to now win more than 22 Lok Sabha seats here”

Congress’s Karnataka unit president Dinesh Gundu Rao on twitter said , “Most disgusting shameful irresponsible statement made by @BSYBJP. Using the #J&K situation for political benefit. Is winning elections becoming the criteria for BJP & not the security of India. Is going to war a electoral strategy for the BJP.”

Former chief minister, Siddaramaiah said “I condemn the statement, where he has used the martyrdom of our soldiers to dream of electoral gains, that reeks of political greed. The tears of the soldiers’ families have not dried up and already calculations on the number of seats! Disgusting.”
