Ahead of the crucial Karnataka Assembly elections, the Congress hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party star campaigner and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for provoking “communal passions” in the state.
Sharing a video on Twitter titled ‘Here’s a recipe for a BJP star campaigner. We don’t recommend it’, the Congress took on Adityanath saying, “Recipe for disaster coming soon to Karnataka.” Highlighting cases against Adityanath, the Congress said, “One kg of criminal record dipped in one litre of saffron dye, shedding half a cup of ‘crocodile’ tears, a cup of homophobia and two tablespoons of misogyny, no attention to development and simmer it on a communal flame and later bring it to a boil. At last, garnish it with ignorance and serve it with hate in Karnataka.

The video came after the second visit of Adityanath to Karnataka in less than a month to campaign for his party. His last visit was to Hubbali on December 21, 2017 to address a rally.
