KPCC chief apologises for insulting UP CM

KPCC chief apologises for insulting UP CM

 Apr 15, 2018

I regret the words I used. It was an emotional outburst said KPCC chief today in a sudden turn around.

The war of words between the Karnataka PCC and BJP state unit had touched a new low, with the statement of  PCC chief Dinesh Gundu Rao that slippers should be thrown at Yogi Adityanath if he enters the state.

Gundu Rao’s statement which came after Unnao rape case said, “If Yogi Adityanath steps into Karnataka we must throw a slipper at him. He should not be allowed to enter our state. If he enters our state, the sanctity of our land would go for a toss. Yogi Adityanath, please don’t come to our state for campaigning. You’re not behaving like a saint.  You’re a sinner. Your sins are increasing day by day. Yogi is dishonest. He is a cheater and we should no longer address him as Yogi any more. I suggest he should be called “Dhongi” (Fake).

Rao followed up with a tweet too which said, “UP CM Adityanand has totally failed his people. A victim of rape found no justice she lost her father due to inhuman treatment by UP Govt and CM who calls himself Yogi was trying to the accused BJP MLA. It’s not # Ram Rajya but # Ravan Rajya under #BhogiAdityanath”.

Reacting sharply to the Rao’s utterances BJP leaders severely criticized the comments on Yogi Adityanath for insulting a “Saint”.  This has resulted in an ugly spat between KPCC and Karnataka BJP. Karnataka BJP’s official twitter handle warned Rao saying “Yogi is a saint. Mind your tongue”.

Following BJP protests on the streets and suggestions to Rahul Gandhi to sack him, Gundu Rao has backtracked on his words against Yogi Adityanath.  

Perhaps one can expect a campaign with literary hygiene in the state after this incident.
