Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday took a dig at BJP president Amit Shah for calling him ‘AHINDU’ (anti-Hindu). Shah had said at a press conference at Davangere two days ago that Siddaramaiah is not an ‘AHINDA’ leader (a Kannada acronym for minorities, backward classes and Dalits) but ‘AHINDU’ leader (anti-Hindu).
Siddaramaiah told reporters in Mysuru that Shah should first clarify his position whether he is “AHINDU or not.” “Amit Shah is a Jain. He needs to clarify first whether he is AHINDU. Jain is a separate religion. How can he talk about me like that,” Siddaramaiah said.
He said Shah was scared of him due to which he was making all “baseless” allegations against him.
