BJP stages 'Jail Bharo' against Siddaramaiah

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.

January 12 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has filed a complaint against Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for making inflammatory and derogatory statement. "Because he wont speak anything of this kind if he has no intelligence input", Congress spokesperson Tom Vadakkan told reporters here. "The BJP, RSS and Bajrang Dal also have terrorists within". I had only stated that they were Hindu hardliners.

Defending Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's "Hindu terror" jibe at the BJP-RSS, Karnataka Home Minister Ramalinga Reddy on Friday said those who created an atmosphere of terror in the society were called terrorists.

Calling Siddaramaiah "irresponsible" for linking the party built by Atal Bihari Vajpayee with terrorists, BJP MP Shobha Karandlaje today alleged that "if there is terrorism in this country today, Congress is the main reason for it, also for the situation in Kashmir". That is the difference between me and.

The Congress government, he alleged, indulged in minority appeasement and played vote-bank politics.


The BJP has said the Chief Minister's comments "emphasize Congress's hatred towards Hindus".

"Shahs intention is to win".

Shah further said the Siddaramaiah Government in the state had deprived the people of the state from the benefits of the money that was meant for their welfare.
