The Congress and BJP are leaving stone unturned to have a go at each other, even on social media.
After Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s infamous Twitter war, the latest spat happened after the BJP took a dig at Siddaramaiah.
The BJP shared a video on January 18, mocking the Congress, calling their politics in Karnataka ‘anti-Hindu’.
The video shows Siddaramaiah, Working President Dinesh Gundu Rao and social media in-charge Ramya. It takes a jibe at the ruling party in Karnataka by giving a recipe for “Siddu beef biryani”, which says:
Welcome to Gundu Rao Military Hotel
'Siddu Beef Biryani'
The required ingredients are
Rice stolen from Anna Bhagya scheme - 1 kg
Beef from illegal slaughterhouse - 1kg
Blood of Hindus that the government let flow - 2 litres
Cauvery and Mahadayi water - 4 litres
Logs cut for steel bridge flyover - 1 quintal
Steel pan from material procured by Santosh Lad's illegal mining acts - 1
Siddu brand match box - 1
Ghee from Kollur temple - 1 kg
Curd from milk powder stolen from Ksheera Bhagya scheme - 1/2 litre
Onions lifted from Indira Canteen - 2
Tears of DK Shivakumar when IT officials raided - 2 teaspoons
Siddu beef biryani!
The one who stood by as Hindus were killed, celebrated Tipu Jayanti, and ate biryani heartily remembers during election season that he is a Hindu and has 'Rama' in his name is once again trying to fool Hindus.
Siddaramaiah led Congress govt has been the most anti-Hindu Govt in the history of K'taka. CM himself has repeatedly boasted of his anti-Hindu image. But of late, he has been trying hard to prove his Hindu credentials. But it is too late Mr. CM . Start packing your bags! pic.twitter.com/vdT9BTfVcL— BJP Karnataka (@BJP4Karnataka) January 18, 2018
Two days after the BJP posted this video on Twitter, the Karnataka Congress hit back mocking the former’s ‘beef politics’, and called the party “Beef Janata Party”. In this video, the Congress has pinpointed to ministers in the BJP, such as Manohar Parrikar (Goa CM), Kiren Rijiju (Union Minister), Shibun Lyngdoh (BJP Chief, Meghalaya) and others, who eat beef and apparently advocate it as well.
The tweet sarcastically says, “Do not mix Beef and Business. Mixing Beef and Politics, a definite YES! Enough of your hypocrisy @BJP4India”
Watch the video here.

Parrikar wants to import it, Yogi wants to export it, Rijiju wants to eat it, Som wants to sell it.
Do not mix Beef and Business. Mixing Beef and Politics, a definite YES!

This is not the first time the Karnataka Congress has thrown shade at the BJP in a creative way.
Earlier on January 11, the Karnataka Congress had tweeted a video taking potshots at Yogi Adityanath. The video had the ‘recipe for BJP’s star campaigner’. It showed Yogi’s criminal record which includes charges for murder, his misogynistic comments and accused him of fanning the fires of communalism.
