We’ll keep those who dis­re­spect PM, CM at our feet: BJP MP

The Free Press Journal - - NATION -

A BJP MP from Mad­hya Pradesh has courted con­tro­versy by threat­en­ing ac­tion if any­one dis­re­spected Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi and Mad­hya Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

At a con­clud­ing cer­e­mony of BJP’s Kisan Sam­man Ya­tra in Sha­japur-Po­lai Kalan in the state, BJP MP from De­was, Manohar Unt­wal said, “Those who dis­hon­our our Prime Min­is­ter, we will keep that per­son at our feet. Those who dis­hon­our our Chief Min­is­ter (Chouhan), we will elim­i­nate him from the world.” This is not the first time the BJP MP has made con­tro­ver­sial state­ments.

Last week, Unt­wal made a deroga­tory re­mark against the wife of Congress leader Digvi­jaya Singh and TV an­chor, Am­rita Rai.

“Digvi­jay Singh has done noth­ing for Mad­hya Pradesh but brought an item from Delhi. He un­der­took Nar­mada Ya­tra. Now, he is ask­ing why saints have been given red bea­con car.”

In wake of the Un­nao rape case, Congress Kar­nataka Work­ing Pres­i­dent Di­nesh Gundu Rao on Satur­day dubbed Ut­tar Pradesh Chief Min­is­ter Yogi Adityanath as “un­fit” for of­fice and said that the in­ci­dent should have prompted him to re­sign.

“Mr. Adityanath is a dis­grace to In­dian pol­i­tics, and he is un­fit to be the chief min­is­ter of Ut­tar Pradesh. If he had any de­cency he would have re­signed by now be­cause his gov­ern­ment has been ex­posed, his own MLA has com­mit­ted the crime,” Rao told ANI.

Fol­low­ing this, BJP work­ers took to the streets here to protest against Rao’s re­marks and also filed a com­plaint with the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion against Rao.

Later, Rao apol­o­gised for his re­marks but how­ever, ques­tioned Yogi’s gov­er­nance.
