JDS leader takes discourse to another low, compares BJP leaders with street dog

DC Thamanna made the comment after reports of BJP claiming that 15 disgruntled MLAs from the Congress-JDS alliance are willing to defect and join BJP.

Keeping the trend of abusing BJP leaders intact, Congress Karnataka ally Janta Dal Secular’s leader and Transport Minister DC Thamanna has compared BJP leaders with a ‘street dog’. The remark came after senior BJP leader Umesh Katti’s claim that 15 disgruntled MLAs from the alliance are willing to defect and join BJP.

Thamanna narrated a story by former CM JH Patel: “He recalled Patel saying an elephant was walking ahead of street dogs who were hoping something would fall from atop the tusker that they would eat. Neither did the food fall, nor the dogs got something to eat.” Thamanna then added that the story perfectly fits BJP leaders, who were claiming that 15 MLAs were going to defect the coalition.

Soon after the remark, state BJP Chief and leader of the opposition BS Yeddyurappa asserted that there are no efforts by BJP to destabilize the government in the state.

In the past too, Congress leaders have made similar remarks against PM Modi. Congress leader TB Jayachandra from Karnataka, in November this year, had said that the time has come to burn PM Modi alive. The opposition leaders such as Mani Shankar Aiyar have frequently abused Prime Minister Narendra Modi by referring to him ‘Chaiwala’ and ‘Neech Insan’ as an attempt to lower the dignity of Narendra Modi. Congress leaders like Manish Tiwari and Digvijaya Singh have often resorted to using derogatory words against the Prime Minister.

Before the assembly elections of Madhya Pradesh, Congress leader Raj Babbar had compared the devaluing rate of the Indian rupee to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s aged mother. A video of Congress leader and former Minister CP Joshi had gone viral, in which he was seen claiming that only pandits, intellectuals, Brahmins know about Hinduism, and others like PM Modi should not talk about it.
