BJP MLA sparks row, says "K'taka polls about Hindus vs Muslims"

BJP MLA Sanjay Patil represents the Belagavi Rural constituency in north Karnataka near the border with Maharashtra

He said it was a straight Hindu versus Muslim fight.

"An FIR has been registered against BJP MLA Sanjay Patil on charges of delivering a provocative speech in Belagavi". In the alleged video Sanjay Patil in Kannada says "I am Sanjay Patil, I am Hindu, this is a Hindu rashtra (nation) and we want to build the Ram temple".

"Let Laxmi Hebbalkar speak about constructing Ram mandir, you all vote for her, but she can't say it, as she is among those who will construct a masjid, Babri masjid", he said, insisting the May 12 polls were "very important". Whoever wants Shivaji Maharaj should vote for BJP, who wants Babari Masjid and Tipu Jayanti should vote for Congress.

The clip seems to have been shot by someone who was in the crowd, but there is no indication from the video where or when it was shot, but there are clear indications it is fairly recent.

The video went viral on the social media. This is about Hindus against Muslims. Karnataka Assembly has 225 seats but voting takes place for 224 as one seat in reserved for the Anglo-Indian community and the representative is nominated by the Karnataka governor.

Recently, BJP MLA from Bairia, Bihar, Surendra Singh, said that the 2019 Lok Sabha elections will be a contest between two "mentalities"-Hindu and Islamic".

Meanwhile BJP chief ministerial face and Lingayat strong man BS Yeddyurappa has filed his nomination from Shikaripura in Shivamogga after holding a road show accompanied by Union Minister Ananth Kumar, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh and BJP leader Sriramulu.
