BJP leader calls Cong leaders ‘namard’

Cikkamagaluru: BJP National General Secretary CT Ravi on Sunday stirred yet another row for his ‘namard Congress leaders’ remark and called Siddaramaiah as Siddaramullah Khan.
“The Congress leaders say that Hindu is a dirty word. I would like to ask them – what was the name of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s army? It was Azad Hind Fauj … If they have courage, they should say they don’t want Hindu votes. Will they say? We should say, we won’t vote for such namards (impotents), who call Hindu words dirty,” he said addressing the Sankalp Yatra convention here.
Addressing Siddaramaiah as Siddaramullah Khan, Ravi said if the former chief minister comes to power, Hindus will be killed, but Hindu priests will be able to offer pooja at Datta Jayanti if Basavaraj Bommai would come back to power as the CM.
Earlier in the day, Siddaramaiah was enmeshed in a controversy for not singing the national song “Vande Mataram” during a press conference, a video of which has gone viral on social media.
The video purportedly depicts Karnataka Congress President DK Shivakumar and Siddaramaiah discussing whether to start the briefing by reading the preamble or by singing “Vande Mataram.”
Someone from the crowd said that Siddaramaiah should sing “Vande Mataram ‘ before starting the event, but the LoP in assembly declined the suggestion.
He, however, clarified that he told the partymen to sing the national song later, otherwise the rival parties would say that he said no to “Vande Mataram.” (UNI)
