Siddaramaiah says BJP, RSS are 'Hindus without humanity'

Mr Siddaramaiah, who came under intense attack from the BJP on Wedne-sday for saying that the party and its fountainhead RSS had "terroris-ts", on Thursday called them "Hindutva extremists".

On Wednesday, Mr Siddaramaiah provoked massive outrage as he likened the BJP, its ideological mentor RSS or Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh to terrorists, hours after he was described by the BJP as "anti-Hindu".
