Shivamogga (DHNS): A local BJP leader has dared Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to eat beef at Gopi Circle here but gave an ominous warning: if he did so, he would be beheaded.
“Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is behaving like a dictator. He has stated he would eat beef if he chooses to do so and nobody could stop him. Let him eat beef at Gopi Circle in Shivamogga. If he does so, he will be beheaded. We won’t think twice about that. By making such a statement, the Congress leader has hurt the sentiments of Hindus. We have all grown up drinking cow’s milk,” S N Channabasappa, a former president of the erstwhile Shivamogga City Municipal Council, said on Monday at a protest organised by the BJP against the chief minister’s remark on beef.
M Shankar, spokesperson for the BJP’s Shivamogga district unit, said Siddaramaiah was talking like the owner of a meat shop. “If he eats beef, then Congress workers will eat dog, fox and so on to appease him and get the posts of chairmen of boards and corporations.”
