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

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.

"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".
