Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today slammed outgoing Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for accusing Prime Minister Narendra Modi of encouraging horse-trading in the state, saying the Congress should understand that the mandate of the people is against it.
"Only 16 of his Cabinet colleagues lost in the elections," he said sarcastically.
Siddaramaiah had accused Modi of encouraging horse-trading to bring the BJP to power in the state.
"I don't think there was anything wrong in the prime minister's remarks" for Siddaramaiah to level such allegations, he said.
