Calling 'BJP's Hinduism a drama,' Karnataka Congress unit president D K Shivakumar on Monday asserted that the Hinduism practised by him and others in the party were better than that practised by the ruling party.

The KPCC chief, however, said what Congress propagates is the Constitution.

"We all are Hindus, we are born Hindus, and we will die as Hindus. We are performing (practising) Hinduism better than them (BJP). Theirs is a drama, but ours is from within," Shivakumar said in response to a question about whether the BJP government was trying to bring the Hindutva agenda to the front again.

"Our feelings, devotion, and practice, also our rituals and ideals are Hindu. What we propagate is our Constitution," he added.

Shivakumar's remarks have come in the backdrop of the unveiling of a life-size portrait of Hindutva ideologue Vinayak Damodar Savarkar in the Assembly chamber at the 'Suvarna Vidhana Soudha' in Belagavi, along with several other national icons.

Congress has criticised the move, alleging that it was a unilateral decision, keeping them in the dark.
