Now that the BJP IT cell has announced Karnataka elections, time for a sneak preview of our top secret campaign video!
Gifted to us by the BJP President, our campaign in Karnataka is off to a fabulous start. He says Yeddyurappa ran the most corrupt Govt ever…

Bengaluru: In a major embarrassment to the BJP, party president Amit Shah committed a faux pas when he named cited BJP Chief Ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa as the most corrupt government.
Though it was clearly a slip of tongue, the goof up gave Congress and Twitter an opportunity to take dig at the ruling party. The video was shared and retweeted many times, with Congress President Rahul Gandhi also mentioning about it.
“A retired Supreme Court judge said if there was ever a competition of the most corrupt government then the Yeddyurappa government is number one…,” Amit Shah is heard saying in the video, before he is corrected.
