Udupi: Savarkar invented Hindutva influenced by Hitler's ideology – Former CM Siddaramaiah

Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (MS/JD)

Udupi, Jan 22: “Hindu and Hindutva are entirely different. Savarkar was the one who invented the word Hindutva. He was influenced by the ideology preached by Adolf Hitler,” said former chief minister Siddaramaiah.

Siddaramaiah who was in town as part of Praja Dhawani programme on Sunday, January 22, speaking to media said, “Coastal Karnataka is the laboratory of Hindutva. Lying is the tradition of BJP. Terrorism of any nature is wrong. We always condemn the same. Terrorists should be punished severely. We get angry when we see people who lie in the name of Hindutva as well as those who profess Manuvada. We love people regardless of whether he or she is Hindu, Christian, Muslim or any other religion."

“BJP does not believe in development. Nalin Kumar Kateel said not to speak about development but only about 'Love Jihad.' BJP has no interest in development and works related to poor people. Development of coastal region, Karnataka and India at large, is not possible if BJP is in power. People have come to know of the mentality of BJP," he added.

“Hitler showed his authority for some time. Then what happened? What happened to Benetto Muselloni and Franco? People will teach a lesson to such people. Modi is the prime minister of India and he can tour Karnataka whenever he wants. But if he visits and says that he will bring BJP back to power in Karnataka, it is not possible. Even if he visits 100 times he cannot bring BJP to power in Karnataka. People of Karnataka have been thoroughly fooled by BJP. Is it possible that all that is said by mouth becomes a reality? How many times has Amit Shah gone to West Bengal? What happened? Was it possible to bring Mamata Bannerjee down from power? Even if Amit Shah comes to Karnataka, BJP will meet the same fate," said the opposition leader.

Regarding his stay at Kolar, Siddaramaiah said, “I am not finding a house in Kolar. Our party is searching. I do not know about that. People of our party are doing it. I have decided that I will contest from Kolar itself. But the decision of high command is final."

He expressed confidence that Congress will win at least 130 seats in Karnataka out of 150.

"In the last elections, we did not win even a single seat in Udupi district. This time we will win two or three seats. In Dakshina Kannada, there are eight constituencies. We will win at least five. Earlier we had bagged seven seats in DK. Will BJP’s victory of one time repeat again," he questioned.

“BJP says that we are fond of power and chair. What are these people fighting for? Son is made as the president and secretary of the party in BJP and they point at us saying that we are fond of positions. Then what do these people love,” Siddaramaiah attacked.

    Nalinanna was honest. What he said flowed from his mind and heart. For he knows that unless there are sensational issues like love-jihad he cannot win. See the man who spoke about dollar, petrol, load of sand for one/two thousand at every door step, It was Nalin Kumar Kateel who advised his followers not to speak about development but only about 'Love Jihad.' So BJP needs to either rebuke Nalin Kateel or accept the fact that you come to power and want to stay in power on sensational communal issues.

    Hey Siddramullah..

    DKS will call anyone by any ignominous name; next he will call another BJP as Stalin (but that will be offensive to the Andhra (?) premier. With his beard DKS looks like a karadi.

    This fellow also known aac' Father of Appeasement Politicsin India, is prone to give ridiculous statements! Is banking on caste calculations to win an assembly seat somehow in 2023! Has the audacity to comment on someone who fought selflessly for Indias cause and spent 10 years in Cellular Jail while some so called freedom fighters were negotiating with the British! Challenge this Fella to spend 10 days in Cellular Jail before opening his trap! Kuch bhi...

    @Kedhar, Mangaluru I thought Caste calculations was the brainchild of the BJP Chanakya - each time Yediyurappa ‘s name comes up - BJPigs talk of Lingayat Vote Bank, same in Gujarat or UP - candidates selected on Caste and creed. As for your Hero Pukka Sorryvarkar, there is documentation available to prove his ZERO contribution to the freedom movement, same as RSS who were the B Team of the Goras.

    i doubt very much that the pukka savarkar followed hitler...as hitler was known to be daring personality...savarkar begged british for mercy....he might have followed some other person in his life and not hitler...in his own state of maharashtra savarkar is not given any importance..only in shakha infested dk and udupi he is projected like demi god

    Siddu said Savarkar was inspired by Hitler’s idealogy to capture and control people to wrest power over them forcefully but in india for Savarkar with the help of thier boot licking British masters who were against congress freedom fighters. Of course Savarkar had no guts, strategy and resources to fight against Britishers so he lived long enough and died a luxurious but coward’s natural death.
