"Campaigns with a lemon in hand, but brings in Anti Superstitions Bill to demean and criminalise Hindu traditions. Hypocrisy thy name is Siddaramaiah," Karnataka BJP said in a tweet.
Soon, Siddaramaiah hit back with a tweet, saying, "When you visit a village people welcome you with lemon. That this is not a superstition is known to all Kannadigas." He also asked them to educating themselves about Karnataka before tweeting.

And if you spread #FakeNews about our Anti-Superstition Law criminalising or demeaning Hindu traditions, I&B Minister Smriti Irani will hit you with her circular!— Siddaramaiah (@siddaramaiah) April 4, 2018
The party also mocked Siddaramaiah by asking him to take classes from the "brilliant mathematician" and AICC convenor Priyanka Chaturvedi for her claims on low attendance at BJP President Amit Shah's rallies in Karnataka.
"It looks like @siddaramaiah has learnt only 'division' at his school. Had he learnt addition too, he would have counted the number of people right. Mr. CM, why don't you take classes from the brilliant Mathematician @priyankac19?" it said.
BJP also likened Siddaramaiah to failed Pakistani cricketer-turned-commentator Rameez Raja,"who never performed at his own backyard, but lied about India's performance while on a visit to the country."
BJP was reacting to Siddaramaiah mocking at Shah for "low attendance" in Haveri.
"After the grand success of the Dalit outreach in Mysuru the brilliant strategist of BJP Shri @AmitShah aka Chanakya does his OBC outreach in Haveri!," Siddaramaiah had tweeted.
