Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy has raked up yet another controversy by reportedly claiming that people who do not have food to eat join the armed forces.
A clipping of Kumaraswamy making this statement was shared by the BJP Karnataka official twitter account.
This resulted in a political attack by the BJP which retorted that people joined the Indian armed forces not because they are starving but because they love the nation. It also asked why does Kumaraswamy not send his son to serve in the army instead of trying to become an MP.

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy on Thursday charged the BJP of posting a false video of him and lashed out at the saffron party for trying to malign his image.
“BJP is upto their old tricks again. They posted another edited video with false interpretation to malign me. I had said that not all who join defence forces are rich. The PM should not play with d lives of jawans to get votes. I never said tat jawans are inthe army just for livelihood,” Kumaraswamy tweeted.
HD Kumaraswamy Has Insulted PM Modi Also
This statement comes after Kumaraswamy made another odd statement wherein he alleged that Prime Minster Narendra Modi wakes-up every morning, applies make-up to his face and sits in front of the camera.
Kumaraswamy in contrast claimed that he just takes bath once a day and only washes his face the next morning due to which the media doesn’t give him enough coverage.
Voting is scheduled to be held in 14 constituencies on April 18, while the rest of the 14 seats will go to polls on April 23. This time the electoral contest is between the BJP and the JDS-Congress combine. In 2014, while the saffron party had won 17 seats, the Congress could only bag nine seats. The JDS won just two seats.
The Congress and the JDS joined hands last year after the state Assembly elections to keep the BJP at bay. As per the seat-sharing agreement for the Lok Sabha polls, the Congress is contesting on 20 seats while the rest will be contested by the JDS. However, all is not well in the alliance especially in Hassan, Tumkur, and Mandya where the party cadre seems to be going against the top leadership to lend support to its alliance partner.
