Haj House in Lucknow Painted Saffron by Yogi Adityanath Government

Minister for Fisheries Pramod Madhwaraj CM Siddaramaiah and Congress MP Oscar Fernandes at a function in Brahmavara in Udupi district on Monday

Earlier the BJP government in UP had painted the secretariat annex building, which houses the offices of chief minister Yogi Aditya Nath and top bureaucrats, saffron on a part of the facade and boundary wall.

Hours after Adityanath entered the poll battleground with a massive rally in Bengaluru, Congress leader Siddaramaiah took to social media raking the issue of "starvation deaths" in UP.

Four constables and a sub-inspector were suspended on Saturday after farmers dumped heaps of rotten potatoes outside Uttar Chief Minister Adityanath's residence and the state Assembly in Lucknow on Saturday, the Hindustan Times reported.

Siddaramaiah also tweeted, "We welcome dignitaries from other states to come, and learn from CM @siddaramaiah's Karnataka Model of Governance".

According to national crime statistics, Karnataka records the third largest number of farm-related suicides in the country, next only to Maharashtra and Telangana.

On Twitter, Yogi Adityanath didn't let the swipe pass without a comeback.

Noting that the BJP was ruling in 19 states and as a coalition partner in five more states across the country, he said his party had wrested power from the Congress in Himachal Pradesh and won in Gujarat for a record sixth time exclusively on the development plank.

"During the tenure of the previous BJP regime, the government introduced the Anti-Cow Slaughter Bill in the Karnataka Assembly".

Keeping the tirade going against the Congress government, Yogi said law and order had completely collapsed here.

At the rally, the saffron-robed Chief Minister accused Mr Siddaramaiah of pushing development in the state by five years.

If he (Siddaramaiah) is a Hindu, why did he and the Congress party oppose the bill?.

"Like their leader Rahul Gandhi who visited temples during Gujarat elections, Siddaramaiah also now remembers that he is a Hindu", he added.
