BJP Karnataka unit president Nalinkumar Kateel ruffled Congress feathers when he called Congress leader Rahul Gandhi “a drug addict and peddler”. Kateel’s attack on Rahul Gandhi came after the official Twitter handle of the Karnataka Congress attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi as “angoothha chhaap” (illiterate). Karnataka Congress chief D K Shivakumar expressed regret for the tweet which he blamed on a “novice social media manager” of the party and had it pulled down. JD(S) Kumaraswamy joined the battle after being outraged by the BJP’s tweet about his “second marriage”.
