Suresh Kumar said, "CM Siddharamaiah has said some RSS and BJP members are ugragami which means militants and Dinesh Gundurao said BJP has become a terror organization, such statements of top Congress leaders are wrong". Though both parties are yet to launch official campaign a tirade of allegation and counter allegation by both parties have put Karnataka polls on the centre of national politics. It will not be a contest between me and (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi.
Siddaramaiah said the party's poll preparedness was reviewed in detail at the meeting and its strategy chalked out.
Meanwhile, Mallikarjun Kharge added, "We are not seeking a certificate from Yogi Adityanath".
Talking to reporters after his meet with the Congress president, Siddaramaiah said that there was "no anti-incumbency" against his government.
"Therefore, the chances of winning are very high and I am confident that the party will come back to power again", he said.
"The BJP is raising irrelevant issues in Karnataka. That will not work".
"They (BJP) are following (Hindutva) sans humanity".
After joining the Congress, Mr. Vijayshankar said he would also brief the media to expose certain leaders of the BJP, with which he was associated for more than two decades.
Siddaramaiah, who came under intense attack from the BJP for his controversial remarks, however, later called them "Hindutva extremists". Similarly, other parties are also up to some mischief or the other.
Also, Karnataka polls is the second challenge of Rahul Gandhi, after assuming the post of Congress President, after Gujarat polls and Himachal Pradesh, Though in Gujarat, the Congress lost, Rahul was appreciated for better performance.
