Mr. Vijayshankar disclosed this to reporters after a meeting with Mr. Siddaramaiah at his residence here on Friday.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi is expected to visit Karnataka from February 10-12 for the first leg of Assembly election campaign.

He said that his party will approach the court of law against Mr. Siddaramaiah and that he has to apologise in the court for his derogatory remarks against RSS and BJP.

The former Minister C.H. Vijayshankar, who quit the BJP more than two months ago, will be joining the Congress in the presence of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president G. Parameshwara in Bengaluru on January 19. Siddaramaiah had recently alleged that BJP, RSS and Bajrang Dal have terrorists within their organisations.

"I am also a Hindu, but a humane Hindu. That is the difference between me and (them)", he was also quoted as saying on one occasion.

Suresh Kumar said, "CM Siddharamaiah has said some RSS and BJP members are ugragami which means militants and Dinesh Gundurao said BJP has become a terror organization, such statements of top Congress leaders are wrong".

JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, USA must bring itself into full compliance -just like Iran. As CNBC put it in a report earlier in the week, this presents Trump with multiple opportunities to scrap the nuclear deal.

While the meeting discussed the overall strategy, sources said the controversy too came up. Similarly, other parties are also up to some mischief or the other. But Rahul is learnt to have asked the leaders to be cautious and not give the BJP a chance to twist their remarks.

Hindutva should be in our hearts and not on our plates or the food we eat. Hindutva is a political connotation of Savarkar and Hinduism is what Gandhi and Vivekananda preached.
