Union Minister VK Singh today put out a sharp and public rebuke for his own party colleague, Karnataka BJP chief BS Yeddyurappa, who has been widely condemned for saying that India's air strikes on a terror camp in Pakistan on Tuesday will help the ruling party win many more seats in the national election due by May.

Speaking in Hubballi, Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dinesh Gundu Rao and the Congress' Karnataka Campaign Committee chairman H.K. Patil demanded an apology from Mr. Yeddyurappa for his remarks.

Modi, in his e-address, said, "Every citizen in the country right now wants to contribute in some way or the other towards India's betterment". If you see, people are rejoicing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's move and they are celebrating. "This is not first time that I said BJP in Karnataka will win minimum 22 seats under the able leadership of Modi ji", he tweeted. "The BJP is crossing limits of decency in trying to politicise the whole issue to gain in Parliamentary elections", he said.
