Tripura poll results will have no impact in Karnataka, no Modi wave in state, says chief minister Siddaramaiah

Bengaluru: Tripura poll results will have no impact in Karnataka, where Assembly elections are expected to be held in a few months time, as there is no "Modi wave" in this state, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said.

He also said the state BJP should worry about how BS Yeddyurappa, who was imprisoned in an illegal land denotification case and "presided over mining loot", would convince voters of providing stable, corruption-free governance in case the saffron party wins the Karnataka polls.

"Post #Tripura results there is excitement in media about the results' implications for Karnataka. Since 2014 Lok Sabha results #BJP has lost Assembly segments in over 50 Lok Sabha Seats & has won only about 2 LS seats. So let us not lose perspective: there is no Modi wave here (sic)," Siddaramaiah tweeted on Sunday.

While the BJP wrested the Left bastion of Tripura and received an invitation to be a part of the government in Nagaland, it was a hung Assembly in Meghalaya.

Congress emerged as the single largest party in Meghalaya with 21 seats.

Earlier, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who is slated to visit poll-bound Karnataka on 6 March, had said the lotus would bloom in Karnataka, Kerala, West Bengal and Odisha.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah are the architects for the historic performance of the party in the Northeast.

Adityanath also praised Modi for drafting development policies and Shah, for his organisational skills.
