Regret Words Used For Yogi, Says Dinesh Gundu Rao After 'Show Slippers To UP CM' Comment

Karnataka Congress Working President Dinesh Gundu Rao on Sunday expressed "regret" for the kinds of words he used for Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath after his comment that the UP CM should be "beaten with slippers" triggered a controversy.

"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 and sensitive issue for me," said Dinesh Gundu Rao to ANI on his earlier remark on the UP CM.

While attending a candle-light march on Saturday demanding justice for the Kathua and Unnao rape victims, Rao had said to the gathering, “PM Modi should sack Yogi Adityanath as he is not a Yogi but a 'dhongi' (fake). If he comes next time to Karnataka, he should be beaten with your slippers. Drive him out.”

Rao continued his barrage against Yogi Adityanath while speaking to ANI and on Twitter.

"Mr.Adityanath is a disgrace to Indian politics, he is unfit to be CM of Uttar Pradesh, if he had any decency he would have resigned by now," said Rao to ANI.

"UP CM Adityanath has totally failed his people. A victim of rape found no justice, she lost her father due to inhuman treatment by UP Govt and the CM who calls himself Yogi was trying to protect the accused BJP MLA. It’s not RamRajya but RavanRajya under Bhogi Adityanath," Rao tweeted.

BJP Karnataka President and former chief minister B.S. Yeddyurappa slammed Rao on Twitter.

"Dinesh Gundu Rao's choice of words to address Yogi Adityanath ji has appalled me. Utter disrespect to a CM & a revered Natha family saint. The millions of Natha Panth followers of Karnataka will never forgive this. I sympathise with you and your party’s culture," Yeddyurappa tweeted.

BJP spokesperson Amit Malviya also took to Twitter to lash out at Rao.

"Congress party’s hate for Hindus knows no limit... Yogi Adityanath ji is on their hate list not because he is a tough administrator but because he is an uncompromising, unapologetic Hindu," tweeted Malviya.
