With Karnataka headed to polls soon, BJP president Amit Shah took on state Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, claiming Wednesday in Chitradurga that the Congress government was “anti-Hindu”.

Speaking in Holalkere at a public meeting, which was part of the BJP’s statewide 75-day Parivarthana Yatra, Shah said, “In the last three years, we lost 20 BJP and RSS workers (in the state)… Stop your atrocities on our workers, once we come to power we will investigate the cases and send you to jail. This anti-Hindu government is playing vote bank politics. Though it is established that the SDPI is indulging in anti-national activities, all the cases against them have been withdrawn.”

Shah was referring to the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the political wing of the Popular Front of India (PFI), a Muslim extremist outfit.

“The Siddaramaiah government is disconnected from people due to corruption. In the last five years, the government worked for the welfare of Congress workers and leaders instead of people,” Shah alleged.

    BJP can't win karnataka that easily. They haven't nurtured young regional leaders and are dreaming that Modi magic will work here too. It isn't a Hindi speaking state, so stop dreaming. And sidd ah is a clever chap, not like other Congress CMs.

      RSS dominated BJP Communalizing the nation,Fundamentalists take the tenets of their Hindu religion. Fundamentalism is often seen as violent, intolerant, stubbornly backwards, sometimes inhuman, ungodly and sectarian. Our goal should be speak the truth in love, We do not hate Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Christians Rather We do not hate Inner castes social discriminations too.The dominant Hindu hard liners (RSS etc) creates an atmosphere of fear, and can instigate hatred leading to violent actions against non-Hindu religious society in India. Religious extremism is a growing threat and danger to human Indian society dia is a plural society. It is repository of multiplicity of cultures. Indian civilization, stretching over five thousand years, provides the most distinctive feature in the coexistence of unity in diversity. India is said to be a synthesis of diverse social and cultural elements. A g synthesis of cultures, religions and language of the people. Jai Hind
