 BJP state General Secretary Shobha Karandlaje on Saturday said people of Shivajinagar should get ready to avenge the murder of RSS worker Rudresh.

Speaking at a function organised by the Shivajinagar unit of BJP to mark International Women’s Day, Karandlaje said Rudresh was murdered for political reasons. “Rudresh’s killers tried to gain political mileage by trying to create a rift between Hindus and minorities. Through the incident, efforts were made to terrify us. Revenge should be taken against them in the coming Assembly elections,” she said.

Rudresh was hacked to death by two motorcycle-borne men in full public view in Shivajinagar in October last year.

“Rudresh’s murder should not go in vain. During the previous Assembly elections, the BJP lost from Shivajinagar. Next year, we should win this seat. The people of Shivajinagar should join the efforts to make B S Yeddyurappa the next chief minister,” she said.
