Karnataka Cong Prez calls UP CM a ‘disgrace to politics’, later ‘regrets’ his words

Bengaluru: On Monday, after uproar over his remarks, Karnataka Congress Working President Dinesh Gundu Rao said he regretted using the strong words he used to describe UP CM Yogi Adityanath.
He was quoted saying by ANI: “Father of Unnao victim has died, the girl is threatening to immolate herself. What kind of governance is this’ I, however, regret the kind of words I used for him (UP CM). This is an emotional & sensitive issue for me.”
The members of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) took to the streets on Sunday to protest against Congress Karnataka Working President Dinesh Gundu Rao in Bengaluru.
Apparently, Gundu Rao had made ‘inciting remarks’ against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath earlier today.
Rao told media, ‘Mr. Adityanath is a disgrace to Indian politics, and he is unfit to be the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. If he had any decency he would have resigned by now because his government has been exposed, his own MLA has committed the crime.’
‘Not only has a girl been raped, her father was arrested and has died, and the BJP government and the police did not even file an FIR,” he added.Following the remarks, BJP State General Secretary N Ravikumar filed a complaint with the Election Commission against Rao.
On April 8, a girl from Unnao alleged that she was raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar and his accomplices in June, last year.
The victim’s family also alleged that the accused MLA’s brother, Atul Singh Sengar, along with his companions also raped the girl and thrashed the victim’s father on April 3 for refusing to withdraw the FIR over the same.
