"The faux pas in the election campaigning of Karnataka."The State Assembly elections in Karnataka are due on 12-05-2018. The campaigning has reached a feverish pitch with the Prime Minister and his cabinet ministers electioneering for the BJP. Rahul Gandhi and Siddaramaiah campaigning for the Congress. Some funny statements made during the campaigning turned out to be embarrassing. First, Mr. Amit Shah, while speaking at a meeting said that Mr. Yeduyarappa, their Chief Ministerial candidate as the most corrupt Chief Minister of Karnataka. Adding to this faux pas, the translator of Mr. Amit Shah in one of the meetings translated Mr. Amit Shah's speech as saying that Mr. Modi will destroy India.
Now, Prime Minister Modi while speaking at an election rally in Kalaburai, committed another faux pas by getting his facts wrong about our military hero General K Thimayya. The Prime Minister claimed that India won the 1948 war against Pakistan under General Thimmayya. The fact is that it was General Sir Francis Bucher, not General Thimayya. It is always better to have the facts ready when speaking on a public platform.
