Taking dig over BJP, the Karnataka chief minister, Siddaramaiah on Thursday called the state BJP as 'spineless' for not demanding the Centre to write off over farmer loan waivers.

"The Karnataka BJP is so spineless that instead of asking the Centre to waive farmers' loans it is giving accountancy lessons on Twitter," Siddaramaiah tweeted.

He further said, "People will not be fooled. Centre can write off lakhs of crores of a few industrialists but can't give debt relief to crores of farmers."

In response, the saffron party backfired at the CM asking him to announce the debt relief to the farmers like Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra governments.

The state BJP took a swipe at Siddaramaiah saying, "Talking about spine, Uttar Pradesh & Maharashtra chief minister's exhibited their spine by waiving farm loans without Centre's help. If you have one, why don't follow suit & waive farm loans yourself?"

The Karnataka BJP not only took dig at CM Siddaramaiah but further it also went on hitting at Congress President Rahul Gandhi and tweeted, "Yes, we were wrong in teaching accountancy. We realise it is beyond you and your boss's comprehension levels!"

The words-war between the state ruling party Congress and the saffron party is on peak as the dates of impending assembly polls in Karnataka are yet to be announced.

Last year, The BJP-led Yogi Adityanath government announced Rs 36,359 crore crop loan waiver in April, While Maharasthra government announced Rs 34,022 crore debt write off in June. Last month, poll-bound Rajasthan government has alsi announced Rs 8,000 crore loan waiver.
