Bharatiya Janta Party MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja once triggered controversy by making an outrageous remark on the first Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. The BJP MLA from Rajasthan's Alwar has said that Nehru used to eat pork and beef so he was not Pandit. "Congress has put Pandit in front of his name," he further added.
Talking to News agency ANI, BJP MLA Gyan Dev Ahuja said, "Nehru was not a Pandit. One who ate beef and pork, cannot be a Pandit".
Well, this is not the first time when Ahuja has made controversial statements, he is known for his outlandish remarks on the Nehru-Gandhi family. In the past, Ahuja has attacked the Nehru-Gandhi family for multiple times.
Earlier, the BJP lawmaker had called for the demolition of all statues and monuments named after the Gandhis while asserting that the family was responsible for most of the social problems being faced by the country at present.
Following the growing cases of lynching in Alwar district of Rajasthan' over cow smuggling and slaughtering,
Ahuja said India is a country which respects mother and "Geeta, Dharti (land), cow, Ganga, Tulsi and a birth giver" are treated as a mother in the country.
In 2016, Ahuja had faced backlash over his remark on JNU in New Delhi was a hub of sex and drugs where over 3,000 used condoms and 2,000 liquor bottles are found daily. "More than 10,000 butts of cigarettes and 4,000 pieces of beedis are found daily in the JNU campus. 50,000 big and small pieces of bones are left by those eating non-vegetarian food. They gorge on meat... these anti-nationals. 2,000 wrappers of chips and namkeen are found, as also 3,000 used condoms — the misdeeds they commit with our sisters and daughters there. And 500 used contraceptive injections are also found," Ahuja had said.
