Karnataka BJP Leader Kateel – Mysuru Today
Following the brutal murder of tailor Kanhaiya Lal in Udaipur, Rajasthan following a social media post, the BJP of Karnataka has called for the implementation of a ‘yogi model’ in order to tackle religious fundamentalism. He also blasted the Congress-led government in Rajasthan, saying the incident was a result of “the Congress government’s policy of appeasement in the state”.
“The callous murder of a Hindu tailor is a disgrace. The murder of activist Bajrang Dal Harsha in Karnataka also took place along the same lines. The Harsha killers in the Shivamogga district of the state had slit his throat and sent a video to his sister,” Kateel said.
He also hinted that some foreign organizations were behind Kanhaiya Lal’s murder. “There is a foreign hand behind the incident in Rajasthan. Such an incident had happened due to the Congress government’s appeasement policy in the state. Why is the Congress silent? It is important to know his position when incidents like this happen,” he alleged, speaking to the media on Wednesday, June 29.
The BJP also lambasted Congress over the incident which sent shockwaves across the country. The Karnataka BJP has condemned Congress and launched an online campaign titled “Terrorist Congress”, claiming that Hindus are not safe where Congress is in power. “Congress is a terrorist party. The main goal of the Congress party is to appease fundamentalist elements. Why Congress is silent even after the inhumane incident,” BJP said.
Meanwhile, the Leader of the Opposition in the Karntaka Legislative Council, BK Hariprasad condemned the killing of Kanhaiya Lal. Under the guise of crime, making political statements is not good, he said. “It is a country where people of all religions live in peace. Death should not be glorified,” he added.
