Karnataka Cong leader asks people to attack Yogi

Protest in Bengaluru against Unnao and Kathua rapes

Protest in Bengaluru against Unnao and Kathua rapes

Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) working president Dinesh Gundu Rao demanded Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath's resignation over the Unnao rape case and reportedly said that he should be "beaten with slippers". Speaking to news agency ANI, Rao clarified on his remarks, saying, "Father of Unnao victim has died, the girl is threatening to immolate herself".

"Dinesh Gundu Rao's choice of words to address Yogi Adityanath ji has appalled me. I regret if it is offensive, but the abuse of law in UP is a serious issue", he told the media.

Addressing party workers in his constituency in Bengaluru allegedly he has asked people to beat up Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with "chappals" (slippers).

"If he comes next time to Karnataka, he should be beaten with your sandals". The BJP is out on the streets over Rao's remark, and even demanded an apology from Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

"Such false people who call themselves Yogi, but only do other kinds of things and don't take action, if they come to Karnataka, they make this state "apavitra" (impure)", Rao had said.

The BJP came down heavily on these statements and made a decision to launch a state wide agitation against the comments. Utter disrespect to a CM & a revered Natha family saint.

However, BJP continued its protest against the Congress leader, demanding an apology. "The millions of Natha Panth followers of Karnataka will never forgive this", he said. "I sympathise with you and your party's culture".

BJP spokesperson Amit Malviya also took to Twitter to lash out at Rao, claiming that his remarks were indicative of the Congress' "hate for Hindus".
