Referring to certain controversial remarks of BJP MPs Pratap Simha and Shobha Karandlage and Union minister Ananth Kumar Hegde, Reddy said looking at all this, it was clear that the intention of these people was to disturb peace in the society.

According to the news reported in Deccan Herald, when the Chief Minister was asked regarding why the outfit Popular Front of India which was involved in the murder of BJP activist was not banned, Mr. Siddaramaiah replied that his government was waiting for more facts with respect to the case.

A day earlier, Adityanath had mocked at Siddaramaiah's assertion about his Hindu credentials to which the latter had said the Hindutva he follows was the legacy of Swami Vivekananda and not Nathuram Godse, assassin of Mahatma Gandhi.

Accusing the Congress of having supported and encouraging the Khalist-an movement, she said, "We have lost several officers, soldiers, leaders and also PM because of it".

"They are themselves like terrorists in a way".

Mr Siddaramaiah had on Wednesday alleged that the BJP, the RSS and the Bajrang Dal have terrorists within their organisations, a charge rubbished by the saffron party. On the other hand, the PFI has blamed the Sangh Parivar for the killing of those from Muslim community in the region.
