Dakshina Kannada MP Nalin Kumar Kateel’s tweeted on terrorism a fragment of the BJP’s scheme to divert attention from issues that cropped just a few hours before the pivotal final canvassing before the last phase of the Lok Sabha elections?
The BJP State unit says that speculation around MP tweet id made to divert the people’s attention from the PM Modi’s press meet and the violence in West Bengal etc. The reason for these speculations is that Nalin is well known for his controversial statements and not tweets.
A BJP leader explained that “Nalin’s Kannada is not so good. He is a good orator, not a writer. If you read all the three tweets very carefully you can see that it has been written in a very flowery language. It is definitely not Nalin’s language”.
The BJP leaders say that Nalin has been in the part of the BJP inner circle. “The BJP wanted a tweet to dilute the attention, especially after the Prime Minister’s flop press meet, violence in West Bengal, destruction of statues in Bengal, etc. So, Nalin’s Twitter handle was used”.
One more BJP leader said that Nalin doesn’t tweet frequently. “He rarely tweets, although he is good in re-tweeting. It is sad that some leaders are used as foot soldiers”.
