‘Sultan Siddaramaiah is a terrorist,’ says BJP MP Nalin Kumar Kateel
Bengaluru: BJP MP Nalin Kumar Kateel on Monday called Chief Minister Siddaramaiah a ‘terrorist’, accusing him of supporting the killing of Hindu activists in the state, by remaining silent.
The Dakshina Kannada MP, who referred to Siddaramaiah as “Sultan Siddaramaiah”, also held the Congress and its former president Sonia Gandhi responsible for terrorism in the country.
“In this country, the source of motivation for terrorism is Congress; Indira Gandhi created terrorists through Bhindranwale (Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale),”Kateel said at a party rally in Bantwal in Dakshina Kannada district.
“So, the Congress supported terrorism, Indira Gandhi created terrorists, but the Chief Minister of this state has exceeded all this and himself has become a terrorist. I will say Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is a terrorist”, he said.
Kateel is now taking part in ‘Jana Suraksha Yatre’ (protection of people march) in communally-sensitive coastal and Malnad regions of Karnataka, aiming to create awareness about “anti-Hindu” policies of the Congress government in the state. The yatra, with a call “Mangaluru Chalo” was kicked off simultaneously from Kushalnagar and Ankola on March 3 and will conclude in Mangaluru on Tuesday with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath addressing a rally.
