Siddaramaiah, Karnataka Congress leaders meet Rahul
(4 months ago)
New Delhi, Jan 13 : Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, along with other senior Congress leaders of the state, on Saturday called on party president Rahul Gandhi at his residence.
The meeting comes in the wake of a verbal duel between Siddaramaiah and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah. Karnataka is likely to witness election in April-May.
Siddaramaiah had called the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) "Hindutva extremists", while Shah had termed his government in Karnataka "anti-Hindu".
Rahul Gandhi had earlier warned his party leaders from making remarks which are unwarranted and personal.
Mani Shankar Aiyar was suspended from the primary membership of the party following his "neech" remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi just ahead of Gujarat election.
