New Delhi: With the elections getting murkier politicians get carried away crossing the limit of decency. In one such incidence Congress working president of Karnataka Dinesh GunduRao calling upon the people to hit Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath with slippers whenever he came to the state.
Rao made the controversial remarks at a candle march organised by the Karnataka Pradesh Congress in Bengaluru to show solidarity with the victims of rape in Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao and Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua.
The comments drew an angry response from the BJP which termed them “heinous” and accused the ruling Congress of instigating violence.
As his comments stoked a major political row, Rao said it was an “emotional outburst” and “all I said was just show him (Yogi Adityanath) slippers”. He said he regretted his remarks if they were offensive.

At the protest meet last night, Rao had said, “This man from Uttar Pradesh who comes to Karnataka to deliver lectures is not a yogi. He is a hypocrite, a liar and a thug. He should not be allowed to enter Karnataka...”
“... In case Yogi Adityanath, No, there is no need to call him Yogi. He is BhogiAdiyanath. If he comes to Karnataka, he should be beaten up with slippers and sent back. If you (Prime Minister NarendraModi) have little self-esteem and if you have respect for women, sack the Uttar Pradesh chief minister. Unseat him. What you are doing now is a heinous crime (by retaining him),” he said.
Hitting back, furious Karnataka BJP leaders reminded Rao that Adityanath was a “revered saint of Nath tradition”.
