A delegation of Karnataka BJP on Friday afternoon, led by former Law Minister of the state Suresh Kumar met police commissioner Bengaluru T Suneel Kumar and submitted a complaint against Chief Minister Siddharamaiah and working president of Karnataka Congress Dinesh Gundurao for calling BJP a terror organization.

Suresh Kumar said, "CM Siddharamaiah has said some RSS and BJP members are ugragami which means militants and Dinesh Gundurao said BJP has become a terror organization, such statements of top Congress leaders are wrong. We have filed a police complaint under IPC Section 153a for spreading disharmony.”

On January 10, when journalists in Chamrajnagar asked CM Siddharamaiah if he will ban PFI, the CM replied, "Even BJP and RSS have some ugragami (militants) elements in them. Whether PFI, SDPI, RSS or BJP, nobody is allowed to break the law.”

On the same day, working president of Karnataka Pradesh Congress Dinesh Gundurao had slammed the BJP while taking part in a protest rally organized by NSUI. Dinesh Gundurao said, “They (BJP) kill people then ask people to migrate to Pakistan. They don't discuss real issues. BJP has become a terrorist organisation. I again say they have become a terror organization.”

After meeting the police commissioner, Malavika Avinash, spokesperson of Karnataka BJP said, “We expect Bengaluru police to act on our complaint in a professional way. CM is also a citizen like us. If police can act against the common citizens then why not against the CM? Nobody is above the law.”
