Bengaluru: Slamming Congress for demanding the resignation of Karnataka Minister KS Eshwarappa’s over his saffron flag remark BJP MP Tejasvi Surya said that opposition is trying to manufacture a controversy.


“Congress at the Centre and in state repeatedly behaves as an extremely irresponsible Opposition. They’re holding on to this non-issue (demanding Karnataka Minister KS Eshwarappa’s resignation), trying to manufacture a controversy and stall Assembly proceedings,” said Surya.

Triggering a controversy, Eshwarappa on Wednesday said that the saffron flag in the future could become the national flag and it will be unfurled at the Red Fort.

“Not today but someday in the future maybe after 100, 200, or 500 years, the saffron flag may become the national flag. People used to laugh over the construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. Are we not building the temple now? Now Hindutva is being discussed in the country,” Eshwarappa had said.

Soon after that Congress MLA demanded his resignation in the state assembly continued their protest by staying overnight in the assembly itself.
