PM Modi inaugurates BASE University campus in Bengaluru; ‘flagship project’ of Congress, says Siddaramaiah
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated a new campus of Dr B R Ambedkar School of Economics (BASE) University in Bengaluru on Monday even as Karnataka Opposition leader Siddaramaiah made a veiled attack on him through a series of tweets on the origins of the institution, founded in 2017 when the Congress was in power in the state.
PM Modi, along with Karnataka Governor Thaawarchand Gehlot and Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai, unveiled a statue of Dr B R Ambedkar installed on the campus in Chandra Layout.
The residential BASE University was set up in 2017 in recognition of Ambedkar’s contributions to Independent India on his 125th birth anniversary when Siddaramaiah was the Karnataka chief minister.
Hours before Modi’s visit to the campus, Siddaramaiah, through his tweets, seemingly suggested that PM Modi was inaugurating a “flagship project” of the Congress.
“Former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh inaugurated our flagship project Babasaheb Dr B R Ambedkar School of Economics in 2017. It gives us immense pleasure to recollect the satisfying memory of dedicating a world class University to the people of Karnataka,” he tweeted.
