New Delhi, Mar. 1 (ANI): Taking a swipe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) over an alleged hate speech by Minister of State for Human Resource Development (HRD) Ram Shankar Katheria at a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) event in Agra, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday sarcastically said such people were ‘deshbhakts’ (patriots) for the saffron party.
Kejriwal took to Twitter to train guns at the BJP.
“According to BJP, people like Katheria are deshbhakts,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, Katheria, on his part, rubbished the reports published in a leading daily.
“The article that is published in the Indian Express is completely untrue. Therefore, it is a matter of concern that Ram Gopal Yadav, without even seeing the CD, has made such statement. I would like to appeal to him to get the complete CD from his administration and listen to the whole address,” Katheria told ANI.
Katheria and BJP MP from Fatehpur Sikri, Babu Lal, had drawn major flak after a leading daily reported that they had witnessed a VHP event, in which Muslims were described as ‘Rakshasas’ and were warned of a ‘final battle’. The article published in the daily yestedday, also accuses them of making hate speeches. (ANI)
