The Bharatiya Janata Party has registered an FIR at the Kotwali police station after Senior Congress leader and candidate from Uttar Pradesh’s Farrukhabad Lok Sabha constituency, Salman Khurshid, courted a fresh controversy by using a popular Bollywood dialogue to insult Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
Salman Used Nakara, Baap Words To Insult Yogi
Senior Congress leader and former Union minister Salman Khurshid on Sunday referred to himself as the “baap” of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and said the son is “naakaara (useless)” who indulges in “chaare ki chori (fodder theft)”.
“Yogi ji se kahiye ki rishte mein main unka baap lagta hun… Ab woh uske liye kya kahenge ki beta bada naakaara nikla. Gau mata ko khana bhi nahi pura pahunchata (Tell Yogi ji that I am like his father… What would he say then, that the son has become useless, who does not even give enough food to cows),” Khurshid told in a conversation with the media persons in Farrukhabad, the seat from where he is contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
He made these comments in respond to Mr. Yogi’s statement which he made in Farrukhabad
Adityanath during a campaign trail for the BJP candidate from Farrukhabad had mentioned that cases like Batla House encounter occured when the Congress was in power. “One must question Salman Khurshid what relation he shared with the people involved in Batla House. On what grounds did he go to defend them in court?,” Yogi asked.
Khurshid also took potshots at his opponent from the Bahujan Samaj Party and its supremo Mayawati, and said that he will make a ‘beautiful graveyard’ for his opponent.
On April 20, PM Modi also spoke on the Batla House encounter while accusing the Congress of having “vote-bhakti” (devotion for votes) than “deshbhakti” (nationalism).
The encounter had taken place on September 19, 2008, against suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists at Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi.
The ‘baap’ remark has been picked up from the dialogue of a popular movie called ‘Shahenshah’ starring Bollywood veteran Amitabh Bachchan. Bachchan’s character, a corrupt police officer who turns a vigilante by night to make his city crime-free, often uses the dialogue.
The Lok Sabha elections 2019 are being held in seven phases. The results of the Lok Sabha election 2019 will be announced on May 23. Voting in the first phase was conducted on April 11. The seven phases will cover a total of 543 constituencies.
