Congress condemns AAP for making casteist remark against PM Modi's mother
Raipur (Chhattisgarh): Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel on Monday condemned Aam Aadmi Party's Gujarat chief Gopal Italia for making casteist remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying Gujarat and the country will not tolerate it. Condemning the AAP leader's remark, the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister further said that PM Modi's mother is 100 years old and has nothing to do with politics.
"Gopal Italia (AAP Gujarat chief) made casteist remarks which Gujarat and the country will not tolerate. He commented about PM's mother. She is 100 years old and has nothing to do with politics. Congress condemns it. It will be BJP vs Congress in Gujarat," Baghel told ANI.
Baghel further claimed that AAP is the 'B' team of BJP and they go to Gujarat, Goa and Uttarakhand to defeat Congress. "Whatever they say but that is their goal. AAP is not Aam Aadmi Party but 'Khas Aadmi Party'," he added.
Last week, a video of Italia had gone viral in which he is purportedly heard asking the women not to visit the temples and 'kathas' (sermons by Hindu priests) as they are "hubs of exploitation". This comes days after he allegedly made a casteist remark against Prime Minister Narendra Modi in yet another viral video.
