Amit Shah asks Congress to apologise for 'defaming Hindu religion'

PM Modi's government has done more for Karnataka in 4 years than 4 generations of Congress Amit Shah

Addressing a public meeting in the constituency of Sonia Gandhi, he said that the days of "vanshvaad" (dynastic politics) were over and that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was ushering in "vikasvaad" (development) in the country.

His response came in retaliation to Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, who claimed that Shah "is not a Hindu". The India Today survey said the party was poised to bag 90-110 seats, whereas, the BJP could trail second winning 72-86 seats.

"The Congress should apologise for the term "saffron terrorism".

The Raebareli rally saw BJP leaders relentlessly criticising Congress for failing to do enough for Raebareli and Amethi constituencies. "We will develop it as an ideal constituency and a model district", he added.

Shah also attacked Congress over the acquittal of Swami Aseemanand in the Mecca Masjid blast case earlier this week.

"I ask Rahul Baba- you, your Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, P Chidambaram and Digvijaya Singh had defamed Hindus by calling it Saffron terror". Referring to BJP leaders' visits to the kin of slain Hindu activists, ignoring tragedy stricken people of another community in Dakshina Kannada district, Siddaramaiah said, "if they really cared for values, why didn't they visit the houses of the Muslim youths, who were killed in the same place?"

Almost two weeks after BJP national president, Amit Shah asserted that he was a Hindu Vaishnav, his community origins are once again the subject of debate in the poll discourse in Karnataka.

Shah also heaped praise on the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government for "restoring law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh which was notorious for goons and guns under previous governments".
