Bengaluru: I am projected as anti-Hindu, but I am not - Siddaramaiah


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Oct 8: "I am not opposed to any religion. However, I have differences of opinion with religions which do not treat everyone equally and do not respect human beings," clarified former chief minster of Karnataka, Siddaramaiah.

He was speaking after getting felicitated at a programme organized by Okalipuram Residents Welfare Association here on Sunday October 7.

He said that his government had implemented different programmes which were equally beneficial to all the religions. "Just because I organized Tipu Sultan birth anniversary, BJP leaders branded me as anti-Hindu. Tipu was not anti-Hindu. He had given high status to his Diwan Poornayya and had pawned his children for the sake of the state. Our government also celebrated several other leaders like Vishwakarma, Kittur queen Chennamma, and others. Was this too anti-Hindu?" he questioned. He said he and his family believe in gods and visit temples.

In his address earlier at the function, Santosh Guruji, who graced the occasion, had said that he was opposed to Siddaramaiah on the issue of Tipu Jayanti. Referring to this remark, Siddaramaiah wanted to know what made him to think so, duly claiming that Tipu had high respect for Hinduism and Hindus.

Siddaramaiah also said that his party was defeated because of malicious propaganda by BJP. He felt that Congress would have emerged victorious if the people had voted it for keeping its word. He felt votes were cast on the basis of religion and castes.

Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president, Dinesh Gundu Rao, former chairman of legislative council, Veeranna Mattikatti, president of the association, Mahadeva Nayak, and others were present.

    Sad to see politicians seeking mileage from Tippi Jayanti & section of misguided people forgetting they are one of us Al-Hind & not descendents of an Iranian outsider tormentor who was defeated by British by support of Hyderabad Nizam only.

    That's right Sidduji, votes were cast on the basis of religion and casts. People don't care about long term benefits, they are happy with little money and alcohol and will vote for corrupt party. "Jagratha prajegalle prajaprabuthvatda rakshakaru " if people will sleep, then it's good for crazy politicians.

    The problem with Siddanna is arrogance and all CHALTHA HAI attitude. He was a good CM, fine. He too pawned his wrist watch for the sake of Karnataka isn't it?
    Why pleasing one sect of the community?
    Finally he introspected his politics,but its very late....Siddanna.

All that the BJP does is to Polarise issues in the name of religon to gain political capital. I am sure the people have seen through this game plan of BJP and will give a fitting reply to them in the Bye elections and in the general elections in 2019.

    The situation in North Indian states is a grim reminder of the Chaos prevailing there.

    Soon Siddhu will also join BJP like SM Krishna, So Pro Hindhu comment is much required to startup the process. There is no value for Siddhu in congress anymore.. If congress comes to majority in next election definitely DKS will be CM, so chances are less to Siddhu become CM in future. DKS Foundation is getting stronger those days.

    Sidduji, The below initiatives in your regime, 'rear ended ' your political career.
    1. Various bhagyas catering to only peace lovers.
    2. Tippu Jayanthi , it split even the minority votes. It did not go well with the self the self proclaiming 'Romans'.
    3. Mugda Alpa sankyatharu scheme put Mangalore into the 'sleeper cell radar'.
    4. Lingayat split - did not go well with the Hindus.
    5. Dharmastala 'fish eating' comment was a 'grave digging' initiative.

If you were that great, you would nto have lost Chaumundi by such a hurge margin. and also just managed to win in another place. The Congress has leadership crisis.

    Siddaramayya is realizing his mistakes now. He thought he would win again by appeasing only Muslims and hence he arrogantly went on with his anti-Hindu agenda when he was in power.
    Starting from Shadi bhagya, he started sidelining Hindus in all his programs. To appease Muslims, in spite of knowing that it will hurt even Christians, he went on with Tippu Jayanthi. He stopped mid day meal allowance to Kalladka school.
    As a result of all these, he was ousted out of power. He not only did drown, but also pulled Congress along with him.
    Now he is striking for a mid term election and eagerly looking for Hindu votes. From yesterday, he has been tweeting that he is not anti-Hindu.. I think some five tweets with different words, but the same content!!!

    He snatched Anna from the kids of Kalladka school
    He was responsible for DK Ravis death and the curse of Ravis parents made nidderamayya to suffer like them.
    Cycle bhagya started by Yeddi and not by nidderamayya. Indira canteen started only at fag end of his term and many canteens r having a natural death and no new canteens opened. Due to his Anna bhagya nobody is interested in working and agriculture is facing shortage of labour. Most of the bhagya r helpful to make money for his followers and nothing else. His own late leader father of pappu had said only 10 %of sanctioned amount reaches the needy. What more example is needed
