The complaint said Siddaramaiah who is "nervous about losing" in the state polls, has made "a baseless, false, frivolous and derogatory" statement which had not only defamed the party, but also incited groups and classes of the society against it.

Union Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Anant Kumar said it is regrettable that All India Congress Committee president Rahul Gandhi and Congress spokespersons are trying to politicise the issue concerned with the Supreme Court judges' press meet.

On Saturday, the Congress president Rahul Gandhi called a meeting at New Delhi, and the leaders from the state including Siddaramaiah discussed the party's poll preparedness and the strategy to be adopted for the upcoming assembly polls. The state is expected to go to the polls in March-April. "The BJP is a recognised political party and we do not need a certificate from Mr. Siddaramaiah".

"Rahul Gandhi was very happy to know that there is no anti-incumbency against our government, and all programmes that were mentioned in our manifesto have been completed".

On January 10, when journalists in Chamrajnagar asked CM Siddharamaiah if he will ban PFI, the CM replied, "Even BJP and RSS have some ugragami (militants) elements in them. Amit Shah is also raising the same and Prime Minister Narendra Modi may also raise the same issue", Mr Siddaramaiah said while responding to a question about the BJP attack against him on Hindutwa. "Being a Hindu myself, I follow it with humanity", Siddaramaiah said. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is raising the same issue.
