BJP turning India into Pak, says Dinesh Gundu Rao Air strike a conspiracy, says Priyank Kharge

Congress has many loose cannons and surprisingly the KPCC president Dinesh Gundu Rao finds himself amidst them.


Dinesh has  charged the BJP with making all out efforts to convert a peace loving country into an abyss of Hindu fundamentalism.

Addressing a preparatory meeting here in the run- up to Lok Sabha elections, Rao charged: “The right wing's main work is to disturb pragmatic social formula that was painstakingly built by the founding fathers of our country in the last 70 years. Their only aim is to convert this country as mirror image of Pakistan. Pakistan stands for Islamic fundamentalism, while right-wingers want this country to be Hindu fanatic country. The Congress party's main aim is to defeat this ill conceived design of Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led party. At this juncture, the Congress  has not set its sight on the Prime Minister's post but its aim is to defeat this ideology which will take our country into abyss of fundamentalism."

The KPCC president argued that the slogan - Jai Sri Ram - used to bring people together on a platform has turned out be hate mongering slogan ever since the BJP's birth. "How unfortunate it is to see the slogan, Jai Sri Ram, is used to lynch and kill people around us, just because they do not share our food habits. The Congress is fighting this Lok Sabha elections to assure people that the party can still live harmoniously despite our food habits ," he argued.

Meanwhile, Priyank Kharge, state minister and son of Congress Opposition leader in the Lok Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge, on his part , said the (IAF air strike) raises doubts among masses that it is a conspiracy.

"This (IAF air strike) raises doubts among masses that it is a conspiracy. It is like '44 for 22'. The statement (by BJP state chief B S Yeddyurappa) was that the martyrdom of 44 soldiers were for 22 seats in Karnataka," the social welfare minister told news correspondents at Chamarajnagar, adding, "Whatever was in their (BJP's) mind was now out in the open and they have made it clear to what extent they could go.”

When asked what he meant by 'conspiracy', Kharge said, "Wait for two-three days for the truth to come out to see what the international and national media have been saying... The defence minister (Nirmala Sitharaman), has she given any statement (on the air strike)?”

The Indo-Pak conflict is becoming a fodder for Congress in the state and BJP itself is unable to give a fittling reply as its president Yeddyurappa started it all .
