I will speak extempore, you can bring paper: Siddaramaiah dares Modi, Yeddyurappa for debate

Bengaluru: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Monday challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP’s Chief Ministerial candidate BS Yeddyurappa to an open debate with him.

“Prime Minister Modi is deliberately confusing Karnataka voters with his bombastic speeches on non-issues. All hot air and no substance. My contest is not with him. It is with Yeddyurappa,” tweeted Siddaramaiah.

“I challenge him to an open debate on issues on a single platform. Will he accept? Modi is also welcome,” he added.
