The assembly election in Karnataka is going to be held later this year in April-May and controversies have already been triggered by the major political party. BJP’s comment game has been becoming dirtier. They are targeting the ruling government with an objective to bring them down.
- According to the Bharatiya Janata Party, its workers and those of its ideological mentor Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh have been murdered in the run-up the elections of Karnataka.
- A senior party leader of BJP, KS Eshwarappa threw a harsh comment stating that Muslims who are with the Congress are killers while those linked with his party(BJP) are good Muslims. However, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has completely rubbished his comment.
- On Monday, KS Eshwarappa who was the Deputy Chief Minister in the BJP government from 2012 to 2013 told to the media person, “Muslims who killed 22 RSS and BJP activists are with the Congress and those who are good Muslims are with the BJP.” With these statements, BJP is marking a difference between Muslims and trying to differentiate between them to bog down the ruling government.
In the state of Karnataka, the ruling government is Indian National Congress. The BJP government under the head of its first Chief Minister, BS Yeddyurappa was in power in 2008 which had to be bogged down by repeated corruption allegations. Now, in the upcoming election, the party is again trying to recapture power in Karnataka and for the objective, it has triggered up the comment game.
On the other hand, the Chief Minister of Karnataka, Mr Siddaramaiah on the statement made by Mr Eshwarappa said, “He talks nonsense.”
INC is hoping to win the assembly election for the second time in Karnataka. Also, the INC lawmaker Rizwan Arshad said, “The BJP used to certify nationalism. Now they have moved a step forward by certifying the good and the bad Muslims. They are, in fact, trying to divert attention from the core issues”.
The Bharatiya Janata Party is putting allegations on Congress of encouraging the Popular Front of India and the Social Democratic Party of India to target the Sangh Parivar’s activists in the state and when Mr Siddaramaiah was asked if his government would ban the Muslim organisations (Popular Front of India and the Social Democratic Party of India), he said, “Elements of extremism are there in the BJP and the RSS. Whoever violates rules will be dealt with the law of the land.”
The burning controversy has been added more fuel when state Congress leader Dinesh Gundu Rao said, “Saffron party ran the risk of becoming a terrorist organization.”
The party leaders have not been stopped here. The Union minister Anant Kumar Hegde in his statement said, “the BJP will soon change the Constitution which mentions the word ‘secular’.” Later, Hegde had asked for his resignation from the post for making such comment. senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad had said, If a person doesn’t believe in the Constitution, he has no right.
It is to see, where will the comment and the blame game of both the leading parties Indian National Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party in Karnataka take the parties in the upcoming assembly election?
