“Have any BJP leaders ever been assassinated for the cause of this nation?” Former Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah

Former CM Siddaramaiah speaking at a by-election rally at Chincholi of Kalburgi district, Karnataka, launched a personal attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders.

Former Karnataka Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Siddaramaiah has stoked a controversy after he made an insensitive remark questioning whether anyone from the BJP has ever been assassinated for the cause of the nation, reports TV9 News.


While targetting the BJP, Siddaramaiah went on to make insensitive remarks against the BJP leaders claiming that not even a single leader from the BJP has been assassinated for the cause of the nation.

“PM Modi has not protected India, Congress does. Indira Gandhi was assassinated. Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated. Gandhiji was assassinated. Have any BJP leaders ever been assassinated for the cause of this nation,” said former CM Siddaramaiah at a rally in Kalburgi.

Former CM Siddaramaiah was speaking at a by-election rally at Chincholi of Kalburgi district, Karnataka, when he launched a personal attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other BJP leaders. He stated that the Congress is the only political party that protects the nation. He further added that the BJP leaders have only gone to jail following corruption charges and not for any other reasons.

Former CM Siddaramaiah is not new to controversies. Just a week back, Siddaramaiah was caught on video making Hindu-phobic statements when he had said that people with a Kumkum tika on their forehead scare him. He also questioned their work ethics and efficiency.

“I am afraid of any person who wears kumkum on their forehead. You are wearing that Kumkum, will you do the work properly. I am afraid of people who wear that Kumkum. You have to perform well and finish work on time. I don’t know, I have this fear of people who apply such long Tikas on their forehead,” said Siddaramaiah.

A few months back, in another incident, Siddaramaiah was caught on camera outraging the modesty of a woman Congress worker by pulling the Dupatta at an event. Though it was later clarified that he was trying to snatch the mic and her Dupatta got pulled along with it. His menacing and arrogant behaviour towards the woman was widely criticised.
