January 12 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has filed a complaint against Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah for making inflammatory and derogatory statement.

The agitators came in a rally shouting slogans against the State government and Congress party as part of their "Jail Bharo" program.

Earlier the agitators took out a protest march from Supermarket to District congress office and picketed in front of the Congress office for more than one hour demanding a public apology by Siddaramaiah, KPCC Working President Dinesh Gundurao for the remarks they made against BJP, RSS and Bajrang Dal. "I am joining the party without any demands", he said.

However, on Thursday while speaking in Mysuru, the Chief Minister clarified, "I had not called RSS and BJP activists "terrorists". "I called them Hindutva extremists because I, too, am a Hindu. Whichever organisation it may be, whether SDPI, PFI or RSS, Bajrang Dal or VHP, our government will not tolerate it if anyone indulges in terrorism and communalism", the CM thundered. "Their (BJP-RSS) conduct is also like that", he told reporters in Mangaluru.

Facing flak from the BJP, Siddaramaiah kept up his attack on BJP and RSS, but changed his stance from his Wednesday's statement and branded them as "Hindu extremists".

On the other hand, the PFI has blamed Sangh Parivar outfits for the killing of Muslims in the region.

Calling Siddaramaiah "irresponsible" for linking the party built by Atal Bihari Vajpayee with terrorists, BJP MP Shobha Karandlaje today alleged that "if there is terrorism in this country today, Congress is the main reason for it, also for the situation in Kashmir".

Congress has put a video on its Twitter handle targeting the UP CM as a subject of mockery.
