New Delhi: Explaining why PM Modi is seen on news channels more often than other politicians, Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy on Tuesday claimed that the Prime Minister applies "makeup or wax to get a shine" on his face before he appears in front of the cameras.

"Modi wakes up every morning, applies makeup or wax to get a shine on his face and sits in front of cameras. But we take bath once in the morning and wash our face only the next day. So, our faces don't look good on cameras. That's why even the media shows only Modi," Kumaraswamy said at an election rally.

The chief minister further asked what had Modi done for Karnataka or Kannadigas. "Deve Gowda was prime minister for 10 months. Wasn't there peace at that time? Where were the terrorists then? But Modi portrays as if he is the only one who has tackled the issue of terrorism," he added.

Kumaraswamy's cosmetological statement has left many stunned, with netizens taking a jibe at the leader.
