Amit Shah Lambasts Congress Govt, Questions Safety of Karnataka Citizens


GG News Bureau
Ramanagara, 3rd April. 
Union Home Minister Amit Shah launched scathing remarks against the Congress government in Karnataka, raising concerns over the safety of the state’s citizens amidst allegations of political alliances with controversial groups.

During a roadshow in Ramanagara on Tuesday, Shah accused the Congress of aligning with the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the political arm of the banned Popular Front of India (PFI). Shah’s remarks came in the wake of a recent blast at the popular eatery, Rameshwaram Cafe, which further fueled speculations about security lapses.

“On one hand, there are blasts in Bengaluru, and on the other hand, I just received news that SDPI has extended support to Congress. If this is true, can the people of Karnataka remain safe under the Congress government?” questioned Amit Shah, highlighting the gravity of the situation.

The BJP leader’s statement follows BJP Kerala President K Surendran’s call for Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to clarify the party’s stance on SDPI’s declaration of unconditional support to the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing the matter, Surendran emphasized the sinister agenda of SDPI and its affiliation with PFI, known for its violent activities and extremist ideologies. He urged Rahul Gandhi to address the implications of accepting support from such groups, particularly in the context of national security.

Shah further lambasted the Congress for its purported acceptance of SDPI’s support, demanding clarity from Rahul Gandhi on the matter. He emphasized the need for transparency, particularly from a party that espouses secularism.

It’s noteworthy that the Union Home Ministry had previously designated the Popular Front of India (PFI) and its affiliates as an ‘Unlawful Association’, citing their involvement in serious offences including terrorism, disturbing public order, and threatening the country’s integrity and sovereignty.

As the political landscape heats up ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in Karnataka, scheduled in two phases on April 26 and May 7, the BJP aims to secure a significant foothold in the state, which has historically been a battleground for political dominance.

With allegations and counter-allegations flying, the upcoming elections in Karnataka promise to be closely watched, as parties vie for power in one of India’s key states.
