Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said even his "corpse" will not go to the BJP. While speaking to reporters, he said that throughout his political life, he has fought communal forces, he might have met BJP leaders, but that doesn't mean that he has sacrificed his ideologies. "Is it possible for anyone to imagine it? My political life itself is for secularism and I have been fighting against communal forces all along," Siddaramaiah said in response to a question about JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy's statement that he had planned to join the BJP in the past and had met the saffron party leaders in this regard.

Speaking to reporters here, he said, "I might have met leaders. I might have met Advani (BJP veteran L K Advani), recently I had also met Amit Shah (Union Home Minister). Even my corpse will not go to BJP. My politics has been against communal forces throughout, since socialist party times."

He said Kumaraswamy is allying with the BJP for the sake of dynasty politics and is saying all this on the basis of someone's statement.
