Hate speech II: Varun abuses Pawar, Mayawati
Lucknow: In an apparent reference to Union Food and Agriculture
Minister Sharad Pawar, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Varun Gandhi
Saturday equated him with mythological demon king Ravana and said
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati is his sister Surpnakha.
"A pair of brother and sister is responsible for the inflation in our
country. While the Ravana is a minister and sits in Delhi, his sister
-- a chief minister -- sits in Lucknow," Varun said, addressing a
rally in the Shikarpur town in Bulandshahar district.
Varun accused the two leaders of being "mainly responsible" for
inflation in the country and said that both "indulge in blame game
when it comes to containing inflation."
"Price rise is an issue all right, but we should not forget what our
party was formed for. We should not compromise on our self-respect,"
"If we don't fight for our self-respect, the Ganga (river), Gau mata
(cows), our temples and the youth, then everything else will fall
apart," he added.
The BJP leader had last year courted controversy for his communally
incendiary speeches against the Muslim community.
