BJP stages 'Jail Bharo' against Siddaramaiah

Siddaramaiah, while speaking to reporters yesterday in Chamarajanagara district, alleged that the BJP, RSS and the Bajrang Dal had terrorists in their organisations, a charge rubbished by the saffron party.

Dr Parameshwara said "As the election campaign picks up momentum in the State, the BJP's highly-motivated workers, especially those drawn from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), will be effectively deployed to raise the emotional pitch on cow slaughter and other religious issues". He made the comment in response to a question on the action taken against Popular Front of India (PFI) for the alleged murder of Hindu activist Rudresh in 2016. "I called them Hindutva extremists because I, too, am a Hindu". They are Hindutva extremists.

He described BJP president Amit Shah's remarks terming the Karnataka government "anti-Hindu" as unusual.

Supporting the CM's stand, Congress working President Dinesh Gundu Rao went a step ahead and said that BJP should be banned in Karnataka as they are trying to invoke communalism in the state. According to our Chief Minister, we are risky people.

"Siddaramaiah is the chief minister of a state, he has intelligence inputs and information that is not available with us". "According to them, we need to be in jail, and hence, we are launching "jail bharo" programme".

Later in the day, BJP chief Amit Shah hit back at the CM and accused him of being anti-Hindu and indulging in vote-bank politics. It also followed the news of a college student in Chikkamagaluru committing suicide after a group of men harassed her for posting a picture that appeared to show her like a burkha-wearing Muslim.
