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.

Gandhi

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”
