Bengaluru : Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has said that the law is the same for all, there is no separate law for former AICC president Rahul Gandhi and others.

Talking to reporters, he answered a question about the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi from the Lok Sabha.

Legal system exists in the country. Everything happens according to law. He said that the law is the same for all.

Congress leaders felt that they could talk about anything. However, he said that it is understood now that there is a law to deal with insulting someone in public.

Rahul has not only spoken against an individual but also against the community. This has hurt people. Therefore, a case has been registered in the court, he said.

He said there is no doubt that the BJP will win the April/May assembly elections and the Prime Minister will be invited to participate in the victory celebrations in May.

Bengaluru: After the collapse of the BJP government in Karnataka, the Congress government came into existence under the leadership of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. After suffering a big defeat in the assembly elections, there is a lot of discussion about who will be the leader of the opposition in the BJP. It is also seen that there is a huge competition going on in the state BJP to get the position of the leader of the opposition.

Meanwhile, it is known that former Chief Minister Basavaraja Bommai met senior BJP leader BS Yeddyurappa and discussed the political developments in the state including the position of the Leader of the Opposition.

Already the national leaders of the BJP are holding informal meetings with the BJP MLAs to gather opinion. However, BJP sources said that the final decision is likely to be taken before the budget session in July. However, the increased competition for the position of the opposition leader has caused headaches for the BJP leaders.

Former chief minister Basavaraj Bommai, former DCM R Ashok, former minister Sunil Kumar and senior MLA Basanagowda Patil Yatnal are leading in the race for the post of Leader of Opposition.

As the position of Leader of Opposition is critical, BJP is taking a measured decision. Because the position of the opposition leader is important for the BJP to bring the failures and missteps of the Congress government before the people and use every available opportunity successfully.

Sources said that the leaders have decided to choose a similar leader in the BJP as there are many senior MLAs in the Congress to effectively counter the opposition attack.
