- BJP President Amit Shah in Mangaluru said that Vidvath, who was assaulted in Bengaluru is a BJP worker
- However, after media lashed out at the statement, Shah clarified that it was a mistake and Vidvath was not a party worker
- Even Vidvath's family members have clarified that he did not belong to any party
BJP President Amit Shah, while addressing the audience at BJP conference in Mangaluru said that Vidvath, who was assaulted in Bengaluru is a BJP worker.
The statement comes from the National President of BJP, three days after assault on Vidvat allegedly by Mohammed Nalapad, son of Shantinagar Congress MLA NA Haris.
Currently, BJP president Amit Shah who is on Mangaluru visit ahead of Assembly elections in the state has made a statement that Vidvath, who was attacked by Congress MLA NA Haris's son Mohammed Nalapad is a BJP worker.
It was surprising that Karnataka BJP though staged protest against Nalapad, did not utter a word about Vidvath being a BJP worker. However, after media lashed out at the comment, Shah has apologised for the statement and clarified that Vidvath is not BJP worker.
In addition, someone from victim Vidvath's family too has confirmed Suvarna News that he was not involved with any party and clarified that he was not a BJP worker.
Why is Amit Shah in a hurry to make anyone attacked by Congress leader as BJP Karyakarta? This will surely affect the credibility of the BJP leaders. Henceforth if anyone either assaulted or dead as the BJP worker, it will surely be difficult for the people to believe.
To add to this, it can also be remembered that when Paresh Mesta died in Uttara Kannada, he was claimed to be BJP worker, but his father had clarified that they were surely Hindus but Paresh did not belong to any party. Same with Deepak Rao, as there are no proofs that he was a BJP worker, prior to his death.
