State Congress working president Dinesh Gundu Rao said on Monday that Sangh Parivar was behind the killing of many Hindus, including the BJP workers in the state.
"Sangh Parivar was behind the murder of Harish Poojari. A Bajarag Dal activist is the first accused in a case pertaining to the death of police officer Kallappa Handibag. The BJP leaders speaking on this issue is like rowdies lecturing on law and order," he told reporters.
Rao said he will not deny accusation by JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy that a BJP corporator was behind the killing of Deepak Rao at Suratkal. Kumaraswamy was the chief minister. He normally speaks with proper evidence, he added. The BJP is unable to face the election on development issues, he said.
