    "Siddaramaiah will do anything for votes. All he needs here is votes and nothing else. He would even lick somebody's boots for votes," the union minister is seen saying while addressing a rally during the BJP's Parivarthana Rally. As expected, his lines rouse thunderous applause from the crowd.

    No holds bar attacks have already begun in a poll-bound Karnataka with leaders of political parties launching scathing personal attacks. Ananth Kumar Hegde is infamous for making controversial statements and this is the latest to add to his list.

    The union minister even alleges that under the Congress government, Karnataka has become a safe haven for terrorists. "ANyone can do anything anywhere and come to Karnataka. Police officers themselves agree that there is 4.5 lakh Bangladeshis in Bengaluru alone. Imagine the kind of bomb that has been placed right in between your feet. Bangladeshis are in Bengaluru, more in Belagavi, Vijayapura, Hubli-Dharwad," he said.

    The Congress has decided to stage a protest against Ananth Kumar Hegde's statements against Siddaramaiah on Saturday.
