Bengaluru, Jan 13: Several Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, including Udupi-Chikkamagaluru MP Sabha MP Shobha Karandlaje, were detained here on Saturday when they were protesting against Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah over his remarks against the saffron terrorists.
The protesters raised slogans against Siddaramaiah and called him anti-Hindu. They said that the CM is trying to woo organisations like PFI and SDPI through criticising Sangh Parivar.
"We are telling Siddaramaiah government if we are terrorists. I am BJP, I am RSS, you arrest me and put me in jail. He should apologise or otherwise you should arrest us. He is doing vote bank politics," Karandlaje told media during protest.
Siddaramaiah on January 10 alleged that the BJP and the RSS had terrorists within their organisations and called people associated with the BJP as 'Hindutva extremists'.
