BJP to hold 'Jail Bharo' agitation against Siddaramaiah govt

Speaking with mediapersons here on Friday, Vijayashankar said that he will join the Congress in the presence of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president G Parameshwara at the chief minister's office in Bengaluru.

BJP leader Shobha Karandlaje demanded Congress leaders Dinesh Gundu Rao and Siddaramaiah should put them in jail if they are terrorists.

Addressing the media in Chamarajnagar, the chief minister had said: "They are also extremists of one kind".

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




The clarification came after the CM's comments sparked a controversy with BJP and Bajrang Dal leaders condemning his attempts to draw a link between their organisations and terrorism.

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".

The Karnataka Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday said it will file a criminal defamation case against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for accusing the party and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh of "harbouring extremists", The Hindu reported.

Citing a spate of killings of Hindu activists in the state, particularly in the coastal Dakshina Kannada district, the BJP has been demanding a ban on Islamist outfit PFI and its political wing Social Democratic Part of India (SDPI) holding them responsible for it. Also claiming that those in the opposition are heartless Hindus, while he is a Hindu with a heart. According to our Chief Minister, we are unsafe people. Anil, a BJP Yuva Morcha worker and Santhosh, affiliated to the Bajrang Dal, has been arrested on charges of abetting suicide.
