We can douse the fire which 'Amit Shah may ignite': Siddaramaiah
Bengaluru : Chief Minister Siddaramaiah has taken a jibe at BJP National President Amit Shah by stating that "We have the capability to douse the fire which Shah may ignite by vesting the state any number of times."
Speaking to reporters after receiving the Man of the Year Award conferred by the Press Club here on December 31, Sunday, Siddaramaiah said Karnataka is a land of harmony where the BJP leaders are trying to sow the seeds of hatred through communalism. But people of the state will not give scope for this, he added.
The State government is striving to build a land of equality as per the aspirations of the great Sufi saints and Sharanas who lived in this land in the past. There is no room for communal or caste hated here, he declared.
Politics needs good people : "Good people, whoever they may be, can enter politics, there is nothing wrong in it." The Chief Minister said while reacting to actor Rajanikanth's decision to enter politics. He also greeted people of the state on the occasion of New Year.
