      It is election time in Karnataka, the congress is desperation nation wide, and don't want to lose its stronghold in Karnataka. Would one expects staged church attacks by the congress hired muslim thugs?????? A definite YES. But the reality is that the congress will lose this time because of failed leaders like Rahul Gan-dhi have gone anti-national by conspiring with China/Pak to destabilize India, demonize the development oriented BJP, want to come back to power at any cost but at the risk of India's integrity/security.

        When BJP was sending Anti corruption officials, CBI, ED etc against political opponents it is OK, but when it is against Yeduyurappa and Ananth Kumar it is witch hunt.

          It is a known fact that to remain in power all congress people must pay hafta to high command. This high command is most richest character in the world. Giving crores is not a crime but discussing it is a crime. Save kannadigas from corrupt and anti national congress is not possitlbe to god also. we pity karnataka innocents
