Priyank Kharge’s target on BJP
Hitting back at the BJP, Priyank Kharge tweeted on Sunday (June 25), “Dear BJP Karnataka, it’s time to sack your agency that is handling the party’s Twitter handle.” It is clear that they do not understand Kannada, let alone understanding the Constitution.
With this, he wrote in a tweet, “Is BJP suggesting that cow vigilantism is legal and vigilantes of any kind should be encouraged to break the law?” Try it friends, the Karnataka government will show you the power of the constitution.
Dear @BJP4Karnataka , time has come to sack your agency handling the Twitter handle of the party. Clearly they do not understand Kannada, leave alone understanding the Constitution.
Is the BJP suggesting that cow vigilantism is legal and cow vigilantes of any kind should be encouraged to break it… https://t.co/hqwBonWYKQ

BJP did this tweet
Earlier on Sunday, on the issue of cow slaughter, Karnataka BJP tagged Priyank Kharge and tweeted, “Article 48 of the Indian Constitution clearly prohibits the slaughter of animals, especially in public places. However, Priyank Kharge is not only misusing his power by promoting illegal cow slaughter, but is also pressurizing the police officers to arrest those opposing it.
The BJP further wrote, “Self-styled constitutional expert Siddaramaiah should tell whether this is a violation of Babasaheb’s Indian Constitution or not.” If not, both need to be educated on the Indian Constitution.
