Karnataka elections are just around the corner and Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah has already started laying stepping stones for marking their victory in the state by pointing out the short-comings of Siddaramaiah government.

Addressing students in Mysuru's Maharaja College Grounds, Shah accused Karnataka's existing government of corruption and described the CM's name as a synonym to the social evil stating, "Siddaramaiah means corruption and corruption means Siddaramaiah."

CM Siddaramaiah wasn't much behind in mocking the BJP President and called him a "brainless man" while addressing the media. The Congress leader went ahead and attacked Shah's tenure in prison and dubbed him an "ex-jailbird".

Karnataka CM also mocked Amit Shah over his false promises which supposedly helped his party in winning the Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh assembly elections. Expressing his belief in the state's voters, Siddaramaiah conveyed that "telling lies won't help" BJP.

Notably, Amit Shah spent a significant amount of time in judicial custody after being arrested by the CBI in the Sohrabuddin fake counter case in 2010. During his 45-minute speech in Mysuru, Shah touched upon various shortcomings of ruling party which led to a mocking fest on Twitter.
