"BJP leaders are constantly publicising that they ate, slept, stayed at dalits' houses. Does that mean dalits are sinners?" asked MP Mallikarjuna Kharge hotly.

He was in Kalaburagi to participate in various functions including the launch of the wifi hotspot for the city on Wednesday.

"Though I was born in a slum, I have risen to this position. BJP leaders speak as though eating in a dalit's house is an achievement. Do dalits feed them poison? They eat what all others eat and serve the same to BJP people. Dalit blood is red too, " Kharge burst out angrily.

It is the BJP and RSS which considers dalits as untouchables. It is because of casteism and those who support it, dalits still suffer, Kharge said.

Rahul didn't eat chicken

Kharge said that state BJP president B S Yedyurappa's remark that AICC president Rahul Gandhi ate chicken at Koppal is 'far from the truth'.

Kharge said that BJP leaders are 'experts at lying'. They have made this accusation just for the sake of making it.

He reiterated that Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Shivaraja Thandagi have already clarified the issue.
