Beat UP CM with slippers if he enters Karnataka says Dinesh Gundu
16 April, 2018
Karnataka Congress working president Dinesh Gundu Rao stoked a major political controversy by calling upon the people to beat Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath with slippers if he visited the state. 

Rao allegedly made the derogatory remarks at a candle march in Bengaluru to show solidarity with the victims of rape in Uttar Pradesh's Unnao and Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua. 

At the protest meet, Rao 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 Dhogi Adiyanath. If he comes to Karnataka, he should be beaten up with slippers and sent back. If you (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) 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 added.

Strongly condemning the remarks, Karnataka BJP president B S Yeddyurappa said it was "highly derogatory and uncivilised".

Describing Rao's statement as 'appalling', BJP State President Mr B.S. Yeddyurappa asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi to expel Rao from the party and said the Election Commission should also take cognisance of Rao's "inflammatory remarks" and take "stern action" against him.
