BJP to fight Karnataka polls under Yeddyurappa: Rajnath

Addressing a massive BJP rally here, he also accused the Congress government in Karnataka of trying to "divide" the society and lashed out at it on the law-and-order front, citing the killings of right-wing activists and journalist Gauri Lankesh.

With the assembly elections in Karnataka on the agenda for 2018, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday appealed to the natives to support the formation of a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government under the leadership of B.S. Yeddyurappa.

Accusing the Congress of dividing society and polarising the people on caste and communal lines, Rajnath Singh questioned the wisdom of the state government in celebrating the birthday of Tipu Sultan, the 18th century Mysuru ruler, as "he was a tyrant and committed crimes against the Hindus".

"Congress government here wants to divide Karnataka community to rule". Gauri Lankesh was killed.

State BJP president, B S Yeddyurappa criticised the Nava Karnataka Yatra of Siddaramaiah. BJP workers Rudresh Goudar and Paresh Mesta were killed... "We will conduct a thorough probe into her murder and bring the culprits to book if our party is voted to power in the upcoming assembly election", he said at a rally of his BJP here. What is this government doing in these murder cases? "No one will be allowed to escape", Singh said.

Responding to newly election Congress president Rahul Gandhi's allegation that the BJP indulges in divisive politics, Ranatha Singh said, "I want to congratulate him (Rahul Gandhi). They ignite fire, we douse it".

The home minister further announced that BS Yeddyurappa will be the BJP's chief ministerial candidate in Karnataka, which goes to polls next year. "I received information that even though there is no regulation in the constitution, Muslim community here was befooled with reservation which was later out ruled by the Court", he said. "If someone is trying to set a fire in the state and benefit from it, then it is the Congress. BJP is trying to douse the flames", he said.
