BJP files complaint against Karnataka CM, Congress leader over 'derogatory' remarks

Share

Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah and his Uttar Pradesh counterpart Yogi Adityanath were recently involved in a spat, and the arguments put were mostly about Hindutva, cows and crime. In this situation, you will have to pose this question to the chief minister and seek clarification.

Siddaramaiah made the remarks on Wednesday after the BJP called on the state government to ban the Popular Front of India after a National Investigation Agency court charged five members of the organisation and its affiliate - the Social Democratic Party of India - with the murder of an RSS worker, the Hindustan Times reported.

"BJP, RSS and Bajrang Dal are like terrorists".

Kumar condemned the chief minister's remarks, terming it as an attack on the country's biggest political party.

Siddaramaiah, who came under intense attack from the BJP yesterday for saying that the party and its fountainhead RSS had "terrorists", today called them "Hindutva extremists".

But, later speaking to reporters in Mysuru, Mr Siddaramaiah said, "I had said they are Hindutva terrorists". I am also a Hindu, but I'm a Hindu with humanity, they are Hindus without humanity.

BJP Karnataka, however, hit back at Siddaramaiah and blamed him for polarising the voters in the state ahead of the elections. It is unusual to say that anti-Hindu.

He said Congress high command was under no stress to finalise the candidates for the ensuing poll and if BJP claims that it will announce the list earlier, let it. Congress will announce the list at the suitable time, Siddaramaiah said. While the BJP is looking for a comeback in the only south Indian State it had ever formed government, for the Congress it is the only State with economic and political clout where the party is in power.
