Kalaburagi: In the wake of a threat to Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge and his family allegedly issued by Manikanth Rathod

BJP candidate in Chittapur constituency, Rathod himself has rubbished these allegations here on Saturday.

This is a baseless allegation by the Congress party that is afraid of losing the elections.

Speaking to mediapersons here on Saturday, Rathod said “I am really surprised by the allegations leveled against me by the Congress leaders. I have not threatened anyone. Desperate Congress has resorted to such tactics.”

He further said that he has lodged a complaint against the Congress for making such allegations.

It may be recalled here that Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala had released an audio clipping purportedly of Rathod allegedly threatening to “eliminate” Kharge and his family. Surjewala further claimed that Rathod who is facing several criminal charges against him is a “blue-eyed boy” of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.

Chittapur MLA Priyank Kharge who is also contesting this time sought to know what did Kharge do to receive such threats. He further said that people of Chittapur will certainly teach a lesson to those issuing threats to Kharge, who is the son of the soil.
