Congress chief Udit Raj attacked President Droupadi Murmu and made some derogatory remarks about her. The Congress leader stated those have been his private feedback and now not of the birthday celebration.
Former MP and Congress leader Udit Raj has landed in a soup for his ‘no usa must get the sort of President’ tweet on President Droupadi Murmu. The BJP has come down closely at the Congress leader and requested whether the party endorses this insult. BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla tweeted, “Udit Raj uses unacceptable language for the first girl Adivasi President! Does the Congress advocate this insult of Adivasi samaj?” National Commission for Women chairperson Rekha Sharma condemned the remarks and sought an apology from Udit Raj.
Udit Raj is the 0.33 Congress chief to have discovered themselves in problem for commenting on President Droupadi Murmu — the alternative two being Ajoy Kumar and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.
“After Ajoy Kumar called President Draupadi Murmu as evil & then Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary used the time period ‘Rashtrapatni’ now Congress stoops to a new low!” the BJP spokesperson tweeted.
The Congress chief attacked the President over her announcement on salt that she gave on Monday throughout her Gujarat go to. The President said Gujarat produced seventy six% of the us of a’s salt and that the salt produced inside the nation is consumed with the aid of all Indians.
“No country must get a president like that,” the Congress leader tweeted. As the tweet created a furore, Udit Raj said those were his private remarks and no longer to be taken as the celebration’s stand. “Her candidature & campaign were inside the call adivasi, it doesn’t imply she is no longer adivasi. My heart cries that after SC/ST reach to better function, they ditch their groups & end up mum,” he stated.
Shehzad Poonawalla said neither Udit Raj nor the Congress can wash the palms off this by means of issuing a assertion. “By simply tweeting this is a personal announcement won’t do! Congress should tell us if they’ll ACT ON UDIT RAJ or not for his Adivasi Virodhi announcement. This is the 1/3 strike after Ajoy Kumar & Adhir Ranjan statements on Murmu ji! This isn’t a Sanyog ! It is INC mind-set,” Poonawalla wrote.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said the words used for President Murmu are worrisome and unfortunate. “This isn’t the 1st time they have used such phrases. Congress’ Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury did it too. This reflects their anti-tribal mind-set,” Patra stated.
Before the presidential election, when Droupadi Murmu become NDA’s candidate for the submit, Congress leader Ajoy Kumar said that she represented the “evil philosophy of India”. The Congress leader additionally clarified that he respects Droupadu Murmu and that his comments have been now not for the character.
Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury then drew flak for calling the President ‘Rashtrapatni‘ for which he later apologised and said it was a slip-up.
