Siddaramaiah on Bengaluru violence, BJP divided into two factions, one faction engaged in overthrow of Yeddyurappa
Bengaluru Leader of Opposition in Karnataka Siddaramaiah on Tuesday alleged that a BJP faction close to the RSS is trying to take advantage of the violence in Bengaluru last week to overthrow Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa . The former chief minister also alleged that the ruling party leaders were using the SDPI as a tool to divide Muslim votes for political gains. He accused the state government and its ministers of misleading people on the issue of violence and was more interested in targeting the Congress than identifying the real culprits.
Siddaramaiah tweeted that the BJP in Karnataka is clearly divided into two factions. A group close to the RSS is trying to take advantage of the violence in Bengaluru to overthrow BS Yeddyurappa. He said the investigation should begin with the failure of the intelligence department.
