The Karnataka unit of the BJP on Friday attacked CM Siddaramaiah for turning down an invitation from Narendra Modi to attend his swearing-in on Monday.
Even as the BJP in Karnataka tweeted, “Modi sends invitation to Karnataka CM to attend PM’s swearing-in ceremony on 26th…” on Saturday morning, Siddaramaiah said he would not attend. He is scheduled to inaugurate a road underpass project near the Indian Institute of Science among other engagements on Monday.
Reacting to the CM’s response, former BJP deputy CM R Ashok said, “He should accept the invitation. He will be accorded great respect. The PM of Pakistan has accepted the invitation but the CM of Karnataka has not.”

Siddaramaiah, along with Kerala CM Oommen Chandy, were the only Congress leaders to hold their own to some extent in the face of a Modi wave, contributing nine seats to the Congress’s national kitty.
In the course of the election campaign, Siddaramaiah was one of the most vocal attackers of Modi. He had called the then Gujarat CM a mass murderer for which he was pulled up by the Election Commission.
