Karnataka: Former Karnataka Chief Minister and BJP state chief BS Yeddyurappa faces backlash from the opposition and some within him party too for his statements regarding the Indian airstrike against Pakistan aiding the BJP to secure seats in the Lok Sabha. On Wednesday, Yeddyurappa had stated that the air strikes carried out guaranteed that the BJP would win more than 22 seats in Karnataka in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Yeddyurappa’s words had come at a time when the BJP had been alleging that the opposition was politicising the air strikes and subsequent events. Following this several leaders took to social media to condemn Yeddyurappa’s words. However later on wednesday night Yeddyurappa refuted his critics by tweeting that his words were taken out of context..saying “My statement is being reported out of context. I said that ‘situation favourable for BJP’ which i am saying for last couple of months. This is not first time that i said BJP in Karnataka will win minimum 22 seats under the able leadership of Modi ji.”
