An assassination plot has been hatched to "wipe out" Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, his wife and his entire family by a BJP candidate, the party general secretary and Karnataka in-charge Randeep Singh Surjewala alleged on Saturday, May 6, in a sensational charge that was denied by the ruling party. The Congress leader played an audio recording at a news conference days ahead of next week's election, in which Manikanta Rathod, the BJP candidate from Chittapur constituency in Kalaburagi district, is allegedly heard saying in Kannada that he will "wipe out Kharge, his wife and children". "Intimidated by the all-round blessings of Kannadigas being showered on the Congress party and facing a complete rout in the ensuing Karnataka election, the BJP leaders are now hatching a plot to murder Sri Mallikarjun Kharge as also his family members," Surjewala alleged. "I know the PM Narendra Modi will remain mute, and so will Karnataka police and the Election Commission of India. But people of Karnataka will not remain mute and will give a befitting reply," Surjewala added. However, Karnataka CM Basavaraj Bommai promised an inquiry into the allegations, saying that, "We will take the matter seriously. We will inquire into the whole thing and the law will take its action."
