The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

Kar­nataka CM Sid­dara­ma­iah is not com­fort­able speak­ing in Hindi. But he sprang a sur­prise at a me­dia con­fer­ence on the Union Bud­get by taunt­ing the Cen­tre with “achhe din nahi aaye.” The me­dia picked it up and be­gan fir­ing other Hindi words at him. Quickly har­ried, he stum­bled over “kale dhan” and ended up say­ing: “I will stick to say­ing black money and kappu hana (in Kan­nada).”
