Prime Minister Narendra Modi had discussed the situation with Nitish Kumar and has said that the center stands ready to provide all possible help to the flood victims. The statement coming from the PM was taken as “You show me the man and I’ll show you the rule”, a tilt interest politics. People in Karnataka protested Modi’s move on Bihar as discriminating factor for the flood-hit victims in Karnataka.
‘A Tilt politics’ says the citizens of Karnataka

This tweet has turned into an aggravation amongst the people in Karnataka as they demand justice for its people. Not a long ago Karnataka was also victimized by nature’s worse face. Many houses and buildings were damaged by the flood and people had no shelters to live. People accused the Prime Minister of showing feelings for people of Bihar and not Karnataka.
A twitter handler named @Suitcase Swamy wrote, “Bihar hit by a flood, the same day he responded, in Karnataka from past 4 months lakhs of the family became homeless and you @narendramodi don’t have time to meet a CM.
A user named Sachin Sanghe tweeted, Dear sir, pls look at #Karnataka flood victims also it’s been 2mnths n we are still waiting for relief funds. Disappointing that we didn’t hear a word from you about this. @AmitShah ji, @nsitharaman ji visited and yet nothing happened! We need your kind attention, sir, pls.
Dear Respected, @narendramodi @AmitShah how to withdraw the @BJP4India membership? After the stepmotherly treatment you guys are doing with Karnataka, we are ashamed to call ourselves as BJP members…#KarnatakaFloods

The government's trend has not yet come towards the flood affected people. Many people in Karnataka are affected by natural disaster. I request to the government to help people as soon as possible. @AmitShah @narendramodi #Karnataka

When #hindiimpostion drama was played by fake Kannada Activists, majority of Kannadigas stood by @narendramodi .
But this time, the scene is different, everybody including Hardcore Supporters of @BJP4India are disappointed with the way @PMOIndia is treating Karnataka.

In a nutshell : Biharis vote on issues and Kannadigas vote blindly for Modi’s charisma; and hence the treatment meted out to the respective states — while Bihar floods galvanised the PM, Karnataka floods didn’t even cross his mind once in these 50 days #ಮಾಡಿದ್ದುಣ್ಣಿ ಮಾಹಾರಾಯರೇ. https://t.co/I5KVvef4hM

BJP is going to wash out from North Karnataka in the next few years. Thank you Mr. Modi ji for contributing to the wash out of BJP in NK. Now, we will start fighting for NK State as Bangalore gets 8500 cr and NK got only 1500 cr. Let us be clear on separate NK State. https://t.co/g8GntzR70P

We have given 25 MP's from Karnataka. Where is the justice sir?? Karnataka was a gateway for BJP in South India. If u dont look at Karnataka now, I am sure South India will permanently close the door for BJP!!

It's almost 2 months since floods caused havoc in the lives of N/Karnataka ppl. Elected reps who were supposed to be ur link to states completely failed to appraise u seriousness of the issue.
