In a bizarre communal statement one BJP MLA of Karantaka has openly said that this state election is between Hindus vs Muslims. It is said that BJP is not in the winning position and Congress is gaining momentum after it’s Lingayat card. BJP leaders have faced protests also, even Prime Minister Narendra Modi faced protest.
BJP MLA Sanjay Patil in an attempt to palarize the atmosphere said that this election is not about roads, water or any other issue. He said that this election is actually about Ram Mandir vs Babri Masjid. He said,”This election is not about roads, water or other issues.This election is about Hindus vs Muslims, Ram Mandir vs Babri Masjid.”
While BJP leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi regularly reminds of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas” slogan, the ground reality is totally different. BJP leaders are openly doing things which are exactly against this particular slogan. It is just one more example where BJP leader trying to communalize the elections.
Karnataka is the only South Indian state where BJP is strong and in a position of direct contest against Congress.
