Interestingly a day later, Siddu attended the the Eid Mubarak function in the house of a Muslim MLA from his party. Photos of Siddhu partaking food and moving round jovially were tweeted by himself. The BJP took offence and criticised his insensitive attitude. "Twitter preacher @siddaramaiah has time to attend Biryani party at Congress MLC's house. But He doesn't have time to visit flood effected Badami constituency. If eating Biryani is over make some effort to visit your constituency & listen to plead of people who voted u," commented the BJP.
