Congress MLA T D Rajegowda apologises for abusing Hindus, RSS, BJP

Bengaluru, Jan 25 (IANS): Karnataka Congress MLA from Sringeri constituency, T.D. Rajegowda on Wednesday apologised for using derogatory and abusive remarks against Hindus, RSS and BJP.

He also targeted Astha Mutts and used 'children of prostitute abuse'.

After his statements created a huge controversy and Hindu organisations warning protests against him, Rajegowda has released a video and apologised for his abusive remark.

While apologising, the Congress MLA had explained why he made those statements.

In his audio recording, Rajegowda says, "I have come to Shioradi with my family. Few are indulged in creating confusion with my statements. I am issuing this statement to clear the confusion."

"I am 62-years-old. When it comes to the question on emotions and life, I chose life. I am for building the careers of youth. Instead of giving wisdom, education and career to the young generation, the youths are fed with hatred and used for political gains."

Few days ago there was a case reported in Jayapura police station regarding a Dalit student being beaten up for not cladding in a shawl and not participating in a procession. A Brahmin youth who tried to stop the assault has also been attacked and a case has been lodged in this regard.

"Lodging of cases and counter cases has become common in the constituency. Allegations are made against me and putting roadblocks for development. Since I am harassed, I also spoke in an outraged mindset. I have used slang commonly used in the rural side. But, using that word should not become anyone's culture. I express my regret for using that word and other statements."

    Congress with a deeply confused leader at the top has lost the plot yet again. The Marathon Walker has uttered the usual nonsense when in Jammu saying it was ruled by outsiders 😎! He has woken about the Indian army though! Now this Gowda!!The BBC documentary is another case in point! In their hurry to oppose and tarnish PM Modi the Congress is hell bent on even letting the country and it's esteemed institutions down!!This will 200% boomerang!! Wait n watch in 2024.It will happen... Know to play politics first but remember it should always be India FIRST!!!

    Some times words which comes out of individual, reflects their upbringing! Some politicians don't hesitate to use derogatory and abusive remarks against their own parents, just to make one community happy to get their votes!

    Raje gowdre, you are one of the best MLA in the state. ... the ancient Indian culture and Indianess has taken a beat due to the political culture that is in place since 2014. People have started realizing that. Do not give up your ideology and keep your fight for the people’s rights of your constituency. You will be victorious again.... past glorious days are ahead for we Indians...
