Speaking at a Congress gathering in Chamarajanagara district on March 28, Yathindra said that Shah faces murder charges in Gujarat and has a background in criminal activities. “But now, he is in a high position in the country.” On March 29, the BJP filed a complaint with the EC against Yathindra.

After the EC’s complaint, Yathindra said, “I quoted whatever charges were already put on him (Amit Shah) earlier. I did not exaggerate. I gave appropriate respond to the election commission.” Defending him, Mysuru district Congress committee president R Murthy said that “The comments made by Yatindra are not new as his comments were based on previous police records.”
