Amit Shah seeks advise from social veteran researcher, writer on election manifesto

PM Modi's four-day UK visit begins meets British counterpart Theresa May

Shah is expected to visit the homes of two intellectuals in Bengaluru to seek their views on the party's manifesto for the upcoming assembly polls.

Speaking at BJP Shakti Kendra (booth level committee) Presidents convention here, he said Congress Party and its President Rahul Gandhi had charged that "Hindu extremists" were behind the blasts in the masjid but all the five accused including Swami Aseemananda were acquitted by the court.

People gathered in large numbers along the narrow lanes of this rapidly growing town in Bengaluru Rural district as Shah took out the roadshow. "Rahul ji, terror has no religion". But now the case is over and the court has said that the case completely fake and fabricated. "But now it has been proved that they were not involved and the real culprits continue to be free", he said.


Lingayats/Veerashaivas, estimated to form 17 per cent of the state's population, are considered the BJP's traditional voter base in Congress-ruled Karnataka which is going to assembly polls next month. Now, Congress leaders say they never used these words despite being on record having said so. "For several years, Congress defamed the country around the world by using terms like saffron terror and Hindu terror". For Varuna, BJP may bow to pressure from B.S. Yeddyurappa to give ticket to his son B.Y. Vijayendra. The issue over the minority status for the Linagayat community has become a burning electoral issue after the Congress-led state government submitted to the community's demand and send its recommendation for the same.

Mr Shah held a hour long meeting each with social researchers M Chidananda Murthy and noted writer Siddalingaiah at their residence in the city. Both Murthy and Siddalingaiah dropped their suggestions into a suggestions box prepared by the BJP for the objective of creating a manifesto for the 2018 elections.
