Hubballi: Leader of the opposition in the Karnataka Legislative Assembly Siddaramaiah termed the BJP government’s ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign a farce and said that it was wrong to play politics over the national flag.
Talking to the reporters here, the Congress leader alleged that in the past, some in the RSS had opposed the Indian tricolour. They opposed our national flag, constitution and democracy, he alleged.
“Has the RSS ever hoisted the national flag on its Nagpur office?” he sought to know.
Commenting on the political situation in Bihar, Siddaramaiah said that Nitish Kumar has taken a good decision by leaving the NDA alliance. “He comes from a socialist background. It is good that he left the communal party,” he said.

He distanced himself from the Congress party’s tweet claiming another leadership change in the Karnataka government. ” I don’t know anything about it. Ask those who posted the Tweet,” he said.
Siddaramaiah declined to comment about contesting from Badami in the next Assembly polls. “I have not yet decided whether I will compete from Badami. At present I am the MLA from Badami. I will let you know once its decided,” he said.
