Karnataka: In viral video, Congress leader gives call for PM Narendra Modi’s assassination

Gopalakrishna has reportedly claimed that he had made these comments a month ago and questioned the BJP why is it making an issue out of it now.

Displaying another low point in India’s politics, Belur Gopalakrishna, a senior Karnataka Congress leader has shockingly called for the assassination of Prime Minister Modi.

According to the local reports, in a month old incident, Belur Gopalakrishna was speaking at a party event, where he had made statements asking BJP supporters to assassinate Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A video of Gopalakrishna’s speech was posted by the Karnataka BJP on its official Twitter handle.

“Today, those people who praise Nathuram Ghodse for assassinating Mahatma Gandhi. I feel that such people should not be in this country. If they try to murder the democracy, I will challenge them to shoot Narendra Modi and no one else needs to be killed in the country anymore,” said Gopalakrishna.

As per reports, Gopalkrishna was addressing a party event on February 4 to condemn a so-called Hindu group that had enacted the assassination of Gandhi.

Meanwhile, the opposition party in the state, BJP has accused the Congress leader of trying to instigate people for the assassination of the PM.

The Karnataka BJP also questioned Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s dubiousness regarding his politics of hate. “Well, Rahul Gandhi, we remember you saying you don’t endorse hate politics but now that your own party leader has openly called for the assassination of democratically elected PM of this Nation would you act on him? If you don’t act it clearly means you endorse his words,” tweeted Karnataka BJP.

However, Gopalakrishna has claimed that he had made these comments a month ago and questioned the BJP why is it making an issue out of it now.
