Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Wednesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s claim that the Congress had “transferred” the reservation quota from backward classes to Muslims is a “blatant lie”.


He also defended 4 per cent reservation for Muslims under the backward classes category in Karnataka.

“It stems from ignorance but also indicative of his desperation born from a fear of defeat. No leader in the history of our country has ever demeaned the office of the prime minister to such a low level,” Siddaramaiah said in a post on X.
