Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Friday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “natural liar”, and said he had insulted Bengaluru by referring to it as a garbage city.

Gandhi’s condemnation comes a day after Modi attacked the Congress party’s government in Karnataka for destroying the cityscape.

“Calling Bengaluru, the garden city and the pride of India a garbage city is insulting,” Gandhi tweeted and attached an infographic detailing the money spent by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance as compared to funding provided by the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government on urban infrastructure.

On Thursday, Modi at a poll rally in Kengeri on Bengaluru’s outskirts blasted the Siddaramaiah government for allegedly turning India’s Silicon Valley into a “sin valley” and Bengaluru into a “crime capital”.

Though Bengaluru was admired the world over as a garden city, Modi said, the state government had turned it into a “garbage city”, as it had no concern for basic amenities.
