Karnataka election will be battle between communalism and secularism, says Siddaramaiah

The Congress will not shy away from talking about "Hinduism" or "Hindutva" during its campaign in the run-up to Assembly elections in Karnataka.

While the meeting discussed the overall strategy, sources said the controversy too came up. Our government is not facing any anti-incumbency.

Siddaramaiah claimed that the Congress had not only honoured all the promises it had made in its manifesto for the previous state polls, but "even some of the programmes not in the manifesto were implemented". I am BJP, I am RSS, you arrest me and put me in jail. "That will not work". They are not Hindus, they lack humanity.

Union Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Anant Kumar said it is regrettable that All India Congress Committee president Rahul Gandhi and Congress spokespersons are trying to politicise the issue concerned with the Supreme Court judges' press meet.

Venugopal said senior leaders had assured the party president that they would work in "unity" and win the upcoming Karnataka polls. "But the Congress party is confident of winning the polls", he added.
