Addressing a public event organised Gandhinagar Assembly constituency, the Congress leader also called BJP a is like a factory of lies and said RSS is from Hitler's genealogy.
"BJP is a factory of lies, they only produce and market lies. RSS are from Hitler's genealogy and following the same ideology. They are Taliban," he said, asking people to be careful about them.
The Congress legislature party leader alleged, "The BJP can only come to power through back door. BS Yediyurappa brought BJP to power by poaching our MLAs. Now, the BJP has removed him and made Basavaraj Bommai the new chief minister."
He added, "He (Karnataka CM) wears an RSS mask. If the RSS calls themselves patriots, then they should name one leader who laid his life for India's independence."
