Karnataka BJP Leader KS Eshwarappa

Former Karnataka deputy chief minister and senior BJP leader KS Eshwarappa on Thursday torched a copy of the Congress’ manifesto to protest the grand old party’s proposal to ban the right-wing group Bajrang Dal if they are voted to power in the poll-bound state.

Lashing out at the Congress for their proposal to ban the Sangh-affiliated Hindutva outfit, Eshwarappa said the manifesto of the Congress seems more like a “manifesto of Muslim League” (of Pakistan founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah) and how “dare” the Congress talk about banning a “patriotic organisation” like Bajrang Dal.

Eshawarappa , a former chief of the Karnataka BJP accused Karnataka Congress President D K Shivkumar and former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah of trying to spread communal hatred, and said that both Shivkumar and Siddaramaiah should be arrested and action must be taken against them.

The former State BJP chief said: “(KPCC President) D K Shivakumar says the entire Vokkaliga community is behind him and he will become Chief Minister, (Congress leader) Siddaramaiah says backward classes are with him, and he will become Chief Minister”, accusing the two leaders of trying to spread hatred amongst communities.

On Tuesday, the Congress in its manifesto for the upcoming May 10 polls in Karnataka, had said that it was committed to taking “firm and decisive action” against individuals and organizations spreading “enmity or hatred, whether among majority or minority communities.”

The Congress manifesto had named Muslim outfit Popular Front of India (PFI), which is banned in some states for having alleged terrorist links, and the Bajrang Dal, a Sangh-backed right-wing Hindutva outfit that is often in the news for its alleged acts of cow vigilantism, violence and moral policing.

Bajrang Dal’s inclusion in the Congress manifesto had invited backlash from the members of the ruling BJP, including PM Modi, who accused the Congress of insulting Lord Hanuman, a deity revered by the Bajrang Dal cadres, adding that the Congress also had a problem with Lord Ram.

The Congress hit back at the Prime Minister and accused him of “hurting religious sentiments” of devotees by drawing parallels between Lord Hanuman and the Bajrang Dal and demanded an apology from him.

Talking to reporters, Congress spokesman Pawan Khera termed it “shameful” that PM Modi had equated Lord Hanuman with the Bajrang Dal, thus insulting the deity’s millions of devotees.

Earlier on Thursday, former Karnataka chief minister and senior Congress leader Veerappa Moily said the party had no proposal to ban Bajran Dal as the state is not authorized to do so.

My name is Arvind Kejriwal and I am not terrorist: Sanjay Singh reads Delhi CM’s message from Tihar Jail

AAP MP Sanjay Singh read out a message from jailed Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh today read a message of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal during a press confrence. The AAP leader said that  Kejriwal  has sent a message from Tihar Jail in which he said that he is not a terrorist.

Sanjay Singh said, Tihar jail conveyed a message from Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, who served like a son and a brother for the country and the people of Delhi. The Aap MP further read CM’s message, which says, “My name is Arvind Kejriwal and I am not a terrorist.”

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann was compelled to meet the three-time elected chief minister of Delhi through a glass. This clearly shows that the prime minister dislikes Arvind Kejriwal,” the AAP MP claimed.

Arvind Kejriwal is among the people arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case. Arvind Kejriwal is being held under judicial custody at the Tihar jail at the moment.

A Delhi court extended Arvind Kejriwal’s judicial custody on Monday until April 23. The Delhi High Court’s decision to reject the AAP national convenor’s appeal against his ED arrest and subsequent remand in the excise policy issue was challenged by the convenor in an earlier Supreme Court application.

Sanjay Singh also claimed during the press conference that efforts are made to demoralize every day. He also said, Arvind Kejriwal is this person, he is not formed of the same clay. The more you attempt to break him, the more resilient he will become. CM Bhagwant Mann broke down in tears yesterday at the meeting. They are all affected by this, but the BJP and PM Modi should be ashamed of themselves, the AAP MP claimed.

Bhagwant Mann met Arvind Kejriwal in Tihar jail on Monday, where he claimed he was being treated like a terrorist. Meanwhile, the AAP announced that its Delhi government would begin operating from jail in a proper format, with the chief minister scheduled to meet with two ministers starting next week.
