Karnataka: Ex-minister calls CT Ravi anti-national for remarks against Jawaharlal Nehru | Mangaluru News – Times of India

MANGALURU: Former minister and senior Congress leader B Ramanath Rai has called BJP national general secretary CT Ravi anti-national for making derogatory remarks against nation’s first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
Referring to BJP national general secretary C T Ravi’s ‘hookah bar’ remarks against former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, the congress leader said that BJP leaders have been insulting national leaders, who fought for the Independence and at the same time they call Nathuram Godse, who killed Mahatma Gandhi, a patriot.
“C T Ravi, who made ‘hookah bar’ remarks against Jawaharlal Nehru, is an anti-national. The BJP leaders have not spared any patriots like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi. They do not remember the sacrifices those leaders made for the nation. While they praise Mahatma Gandhi outside India, here they worship Godse as a nationalist. All politicians follow their political party’s ideologies, but when it comes to the nation, we all should be together,” Rai said.
“Indians enjoy democracy only because of the sacrifices of a large number of freedom fighters. However, it is unfortunate that some BJP leaders are engaged in insulting freedom fighters through their statements,’’ Rai said, adding the Congress will not tolerate remarks against national leaders, who fought for the Independence.
“Insulting Mahatma Gandhi and calling his assassin a nationalist cannot be tolerated. He (Ravi) was made national general secretary of the BJP. However, when it comes to the Mekedatu project, he speaks in favour of Tamil Nadu. The BJP calls us slaves of the Nehru family, but we are happy for not being slaves of corporate companies like they do,” Rai added.
