Udit Raj in trouble for derogatory remark on President Droupadi Murmu; NCW asks him to apologise


New Delhi: BJP today criticized Congress following its leader Udit Raj’s objectionable tweet on President Droupadi Murmu.

Party spokesperson Sambit Patra said, the words used for the President by the Congress leader are unfortunate.

The Congress leader in a tweet said, “I hope no country gets a President like Droupadi Murmu ji. Chamchagiri also has its limits. It is said that 70% of people eat salt from Gujarat. If one lives their life by eating salt, they would know.”

The National Commission for Women (NCW) took serious note of the remarks and sent a notice to the leader. The BJP fiercely attacked the grand old party for the leader’s remarks and said that Raj has an “anti-tribal mindset.”

The leader tweeted a while later and said that his comments have nothing to do with the grand old party.

His tweet read: “my statement with regards to Droupadi Murmu is mine & nothing to do with Congress. Her candidature & campaign were in the name adivasi, it doesn’t mean she is no longer adivasi. My heart cries that when SC/ST reach to higher position, they ditch their communities & become mum.”
