BJP Slashes Tharoor For his Tweet on Yogi’s Kumbh Snaan

[New Delhi]BJP Slashes Tharoor For his Tweet on Yogis’s Kumbh Snan
BJP Union minister Smt Smriti Irani attacked the opposition party after Tharoor tweeted a photograph of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his cabinet colleagues taking a dip at ‘Sangam’ in Kumbh and apparently took a dig at them.
“Ganga has to be kept clean and sins are also to be washed here. Everyone is naked in this Sangam. Hail mother Ganga,” the Congress MP had tweeted in Hindi Tuesday,”गंगा भी स्वच्छ रखनी है और पाप भी यहीं धोने हैं। इस संगम में सब नंगे हैं!
जय गंगा मैया की!” drawing an angry response from Irani.
Noting that Kumbh is a festival of faith and a biggest symbol of Hindu beliefs, Irani told reporters that Tharoor’s comments were tantamount to “religious slur” as she accused him of ridiculing the religious congregation.
“It is appalling and he has done it with tactical support of Rahul Gandhi,” she said, claiming that the Congress president’s silence amounted to his support to Tharoor’s “insult” of the Hinduism.
