Siddaramaiah tweeted, “Narendra Modi is cheating Kannada people by not allowing candidates to take IBPS exam in Kannada. The latest IBPS notification is an example of BJP’s anti-Kannada stand.

Talking about the 25 MPs elected to the Lok Sabha from Karnataka, he asked, “What are these MPs doing? Though slavery has ended, BJP’s Karnataka MPs are behaving like slaves of Narendra Modi. Shame on him.” He said, “Yeddyurappa’s supporters call him ‘huli’ (tiger), but in reality he is ‘ili’ (rat). When he has to stand in front of Narendra Modi, he hides in the bills. If he cannot ensure justice for Kannada people, he should resign.”
Noting that IBPS had called for applications to fill up over 3,000 vacant clerical posts in 11 nationalized banks, of which 407 are in Karnataka, the former chief minister said that injustice is being done to Kannada by excluding Kannada speakers from the competition. This will result in huge unemployment. He said, “Candidates were able to write IBPS exam in regional languages before 2014. After the BJP came to power, the rules were changed to allow only English and Hindi. We also wrote a letter to Narendra Modi to oppose it.
Further, mentioning that most of the schemes of the central and state governments are implemented through banks on which farmers, labourers, women and many others depend, he said that rural people face harassment from those employees It is falling, those who do not know Kannada. He said, “After being elected to Rajya Sabha from Karnataka, Nirmala Sitharaman has continuously betrayed Kannada and Kannada people. He has continued this with respect to the IBPS exam as well. He is unfit to represent the people of Karnataka in the Rajya Sabha. If there is any shame, he should resign.
