BJP leaders court arrest after Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah calls them 'extremists'

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses the inaugural session of First PIO-Parliamentarian Conference in New Delhi on Tuesday

On Congress president Rahul Gandhi's tour of Karnataka, the chief minister revealed that it was tentatively scheduled for January 27, 28 and 29.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Siddaramaiah said the Congress President was happy with the progress of the party in the state, adding that all promises made by the government in 2013 have been successfully fulfilled.

"He (Gandhi) will be addressing meetings and interacting with various groups of intellectuals, farmers, women and students during his visit to Karnataka", state Congress chief G Parameshwara said.

The State government also came under attack for what the BJP activists said was a collapse of law and order situation and instead of reining in troublemakers, the Chief Minister was content accusing the BJP of fomenting tension, the activists said.


Scores of BJP supporters and activists staged a demonstration in the city on Friday condemning Chief Minister Siddaramaiah likening them to extremists. They are raising irrelevant issues. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is raising the same issue. I have only said they spread hatred in the name of Hindutva. Hindu dharma means humane Hindu and not hatred.

Ahead of the assembly elections in Karnataka this year, a Siddaramaiah-led Congress delegation from Karnataka met Rahul Gandhi at his residence earlier in the day.

Taking a dig at Siddaramaiah's recent statement about him being a Hindu, the over-a-minute-long video, posted on BJP Uttar Pradesh's Twitter handle on Saturday, shows pictures of 12 Hindus, who were killed in the last two to three years in Karnataka.
