BJP has criticized Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s statement where he has branded the RSS and BJP workers of Karnataka as Hindu extremists.

BJP has criticized Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s statement where he has branded the RSS and BJP workers of Karnataka as Hindu extremists. Addressing a press conference on Thursday, BJP spokesman Sambit Patra said “Congress Party’s attitude toward  Hindus has been exposed. There is nothing new in this.”
Patra said that the issue ‘Hindu Terrorism’ was earlier brought by the Congress government and now it is polarising this issue in Karnataka. Patra mocking Rahul Gandhi said that he is trying to become a temporary Hindu by wearing a Janeu. He further added that the mindset of Congress is now coming out in the open. During this time, Patra also mentioned about WikiLeaks reports of Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Hindu Terror’ disclosures.
After this statement of Siddaramaiah, Bhartiya Janata Party has come into full action mode. State BJP leader Shobha Karandlaje has announced that BJP workers will conduct a Jail Bharo movement across Karnataka on Friday. She said, “We will appeal to the government India to arrest us as we are from BJP and RSS.”
She further said, “Congress talks about putting a ban on us but they have supported Khalistan, ULFA and LTTE. The Chief Minister of Karnataka should apologize for his irresponsible statement.”
Siddaramaiah in his explosive statement said, “BJP, RSS and Bajrang Dal are a kind of terrorist. Those who disrupt the peace of the society should not be tolerated by the government. Whether it is PFI, SDPI or VHP, RSS”. Later Siddaramaiah termed BJP and RSS as ‘Hindu extremists’.
On Wednesday, BJP retaliated to Siddaramaiah’s statement of ‘Hindu Terrorism’. It was tweeted by BJP’s Karnataka twitter account that Siddaramaiah is polarizing the elections. On one hand, they are calling the BJP-RSS a terrorist organization, on the other hand, local Congress President Dinesh is demanding a ban on BJP. This tweet on behalf of BJP stated that they should understand that it is not 1975 and today Indira Gandhi is not the Prime Minister.
According to sources, Amit Shah, the national president of Bharatiya Janata Party, was also present in Karnataka. Shah was part of the Parivartan rally organised there. While addressing the rally, Amit Shah targeted the Siddaramaiah government and said he is anti-Hindu and is running the politics of vote bank. Shah asked where is the money going which the Modi government is sending for the development of the state? Amit Shah also talked about forming BJP government in Karnataka.

The big brawl between the sons of Siddaramaiah and Yeddyurappa has been scrapped in Varuna after BJP’s chief ministerial candidate Yeddyurappa announced at a convention in Mysore that his son Vijayendra won’t contest against Siddaramaiah’s son Yathendra anymore.

BJP did not take this news lightly with party workers creating a commotion by throwing chairs around. It is believed that the elections will be a piece of cake for Yathendra now.

At the same time Yeddyurappa’s close aide Shobha Karandlaje has also been excluded from BJP’s latest list of candidates.

“Shobha is a junior compared to other leaders like Anantkumar Hegde, Sadananda Gowda and Jagadish Shettar. They will never let this happen. She is lobbying to contest from Yeshvanthpur and since she is a close associate of Yeddyurappa, he may favour her, but the high command will take the opinions of other leaders and she may not get the ticket,” a source has revealed.

The party has not yet made up its mind on four constituencies. Tuesday is the last date to file nominations.

Publishing the final list of candidates for the May 12 Karnataka Assembly elections, the Congress announced a change in the name of candidates in six seats and selected nominees for five other seats on Sunday.

The AICC announced the names of candidates for five of the 224 constituencies where it had not announced candidates and changed candidates in six constituencies from those named its first list announced on April 15.

The party replaced nominee HS Chandra Mouli in Madikeri as he was the lawyer of diamond trader Mehul Choksi, who fled the country in January after allegedly defrauding the Punjab National Bank along with his nephew Nirav Modi.

Putting an end to speculation over whether Siddaramaiah would contest a second seat apart from Chamundeshwari in his home district of Mysore, the Congress declared him as the candidate for the Badami constituency in Bagalkot in north Karnataka.

Among the other constituencies where the Congress changed its candidates is Jagalur (ST seat) where the party had announced the candidature of A L Puspha. But following severe pressure, the party replaced her with HP Rajesh, the sitting MLA.

Kote Anjaneya Swamy temple, the North Gate of Mysuru Palace was turned into a battlefield as the two nomination processions were slated to commence.
