Prime Minister Narendra Modi today praised Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath’s “Twitter-Twitter ka khel” (game on Twitter) and said that he has successfully challenged many “acche khiladi” (legendary players of the game).
Yogi Ji bhi kam khiladi nahin hain. Kayi rajyon mein bahut logon ke saath hamare Yogi Ji twitter-twitter ka khel khel rhe hain. Aur twitter ke khel mein bhi acche acche khiladiyon ko unhone parast karke rakh diya hai: PM Narendra Modi pic.twitter.com/5kp4Y2nCJt

The Prime Minister’s comment came in the backdrop of a bitter feud between the chief ministers of Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh on Twitter.
On Monday, Siddaramaiah had mounted an offensive against Adityanath for daring him to ban cow-slaughter and asked, “I have reared cows, grazed them and even cleaned the dung. Has Yogi Adityanath done all these?”
