BJP files complaint against Siddaramaiah and Dinesh Gundu Rao-1Bengaluru: Former minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson S. Suresh Kumar on Friday filed a complaint with the City Police Commissioner seeking penal action against Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and working president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee Dinesh Gundu Rao for making “inflammatory and derogatory statements” against the Bharatiya Janata Party.

In his complaint, Suresh Kumar said Siddaramaiah had made a public statement branding the members of the BJP and RSS as terrorists.

The complaint said Siddaramaiah, being the Chief Minister of Karnataka, was misusing his position to spread “blatant falsehood” against the party with an ulterior motive of reaping political gain.

Dinesh Gundu Rao’s statement, on similar lines, was creating enmity between citizens, the complaint said.

“Therefore, we demand that Siddaramiah and Dinesh Gundu Rao be made liable for defamation and for promotion of enmity between citizens,” it said.
