"I had said Hindutva extremists", he told reporters in Chamarajanagara when asked about his remarks on Wednesday, which had stirred a hornet's nest in the poll-bound state.
Congress president Rahul Gandhi will pay a three-day visit to Karnataka from February 10-12 for the first leg of assembly election's campaign in the state. It will not be a contest between me and (Prime Minister) Narendra Modi.
Gandhi decided on the campaign after meeting with party leaders from his state, including Siddaramaiah, state party unit president G. Parameshwara, working president Dinesh Gundu Rao, Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, senior leaders Veerappa Moily, K.H. Muniappa, Oscar Fernandes and party in charge of Karnataka K.C. Venugopal.

He warned them against making any "absurd" comments that could antagonise any community or draw undue attention from the media and said the party should not be seen as appeasing a particular community in the run- up to the poll. "We will win the upcoming polls with a comfortable majority", he added.
According to Siddaramaiah, the Congress had not only honoured all the promises it had made in its manifesto for the previous state polls, but "even some of the programmes not in the manifesto were implemented". "That will not work".
Going by a senior leader, Mr Gandhi, who gave pep talk to state leaders based on his recent experience in Gujarat, felt the party would have won in that state if it had a robust booth level network and directed them to make sure it existed in Karnataka.
"They (BJP) are following (Hindutva) sans humanity". Similarly, other parties are also up to some mischief or the other.
Reacting strongly to the remarks, the state BJP had accused Siddaramaiah of desperately trying to polarise elections on communal lines "by calling BJP-RSS terror organisations".
At the same time, Rahul is learnt to have left strict instructions to party leaders to own defensive posture about Hindutva that is the major issue BJP is banking on, desist from issuing controversial statements about Hindutva and not to project themselves as anti-Hindu. He impressed upon the leaders that the paramount aim of all the strategies should be to bring back Congress to power in Karnataka.
