Bengaluru: Karnataka Congress deleted the controversial tweet against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and issued an apology after facing backlash.

The Karnataka Congress party chief DK Shivakumar said the tweet by the state Congress official Twitter handle was regretted and stands withdrawn.

Taking to Twitter Shivakumar wrote, “I have always believed that civil and parliamentary language is a non-negotiable pre-requisite for political discourse. An uncivil tweet made by a novice social media manager through the Karnataka Congress official Twitter handle is regretted and stands withdrawn.”

The ongoing war of words between BJP and Congress ahead of bypolls touched a low on Monday as Congress called the PM an ‘angutha chhap’ (illiterate), besides accusing him of pushing people to beggary.

“Congress built schools, but Modi never went to study. It (Congress) had even rolled out a scheme for adult education. Modi did not learn there, either. Those who chose to beg for a living are pushing the people of the country to beggary. Country is suffering because of #angoothachaap Modi,” Congress tweeted from its official Twitter handle Karnataka Congress.

The Congress tweeted if the party were in power today, petrol would have been available for Rs 66 and diesel for Rs 55 per litre.

The party also dared PM Modi for a public debate with former AICC president Rahul Gandhi.
