January 12 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has filed a complaint against Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for making inflammatory and derogatory statement.

Addressing a rally in Chitradurga district on Wednesday, Shah charged the government with perpetrating atrocities against BJP and RSS workers, claiming 20 of them were killed in the state over the last three years.

At Mysuru, the Karnataka CM said, "I had said they are Hindutva terrorists". I had only stated that they were Hindu hardliners.

The BJP president used Yeddyurappa's "Parivartan Yatra" to tear into the Siddaramaiah regime and Congress, alleging the party failed to bring development to "Karnataka".

Walkner, who is now third in the overall standings, said: "I lost a lot of time and had many crashes in the soft dunes. While the former trails by just one minute, the latter is behind Van Beveren by one minute and 14 seconds.

Accusing the Congress of having supported and encouraging the Khalistan movement, she said, "we have lost several officers, soldiers, leaders and also prime minister because of it".

The clarification came after the CM's comments sparked a controversy with BJP and Bajrang Dal leaders condemning his attempts to draw a link between their organisations and terrorism. "Their (BJP-RSS) conduct is also like that", he told reporters in Mangaluru. "Chief Minister has named me as a terrorist, because I'm RSS". "We will take stringent action against anyone who indulges in terror activities, whether they are from PFI, SDPI, RSS or Bajrang Dal", Siddaramaiah said as per The New Indian Express.

On the other hand, the PFI has blamed Sangh Parivar outfits for the killing of Muslims in the region. Today, Siddaramaiah is again in the spotlight for the U-turn that he has made.
