Speaking to reporters at the Congress Bhavan at Mallikatte on Wednesday, he said if the BJP fought the issue on religious grounds, the Congress will face it politically by winning the support of the people. He said the Congress would seek public co-operation to maintain harmony and accused the BJPof trying to disrupt harmony.
