Anil Vij on Gandhi
BJP’s Haryana Minister Anil Vij has said that Khadi’s sales dropped ever since Mahatma Gandhi was linked to it, but adding PM Narendra Modi as a brand has boosted its sale by 14%. “Gandhiji’s name is such that our currency started devaluing ever since it was put on notes. Gradually he will be removed from currency notes,” he added.
One can only expect such kind of objectionable and nonsensical statements from BJP’s leaders and ministers:RS Surjewala,Cong on Vij
Shrikant Sharma,BJP: BJP strongly condemns statement of Vij,its his personal remark & not party’s stand. Mahatma Gandhi is our icon
It is his personal opinion and has nothing to do with the party: Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar on Anil Vij
But after few hours the the statment was relised saying
“The comment I made on Mahatma Gandhi is my personal opinion, to avoid hurting anyone’s sentiments I take it back: Haryana Min Vij”
