’Insult to Kannadiga’: BJP on Rahul Gandhi’s slurs against Aishwarya Rai

Mangalore Today News Network

Bengaluru, Feb 22, 2024: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday hit out at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi over his "slurs" against actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The BJP said Rahul Gandhi "sank to a new low" after he "demeaned" Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.



The Karnataka BJP also slammed Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and questioned him over Rahul Gandhi insulting a "fellow Kannadiga".

"Frustrated by constant rejections by Indians, Rahul Gandhi has sunk to a new low of demeaning India’s Pride Aishwarya Rai. A fourth-generation dynast, with zero achievements, now resorts to slurs against Aishwarya Rai, who has brought more glory to India and than Rahul Gandhi’s entire family," the Karnataka BJP said in a tweet.

"Mr Siddaramaiah, as your boss continues to insult a fellow Kannadiga, will you uphold your professed Kannada pride and speak out against such disrespect, or will you remain silent to safeguard your CM Chair?" the tweet further read.

The BJP also shared clips of Rahul Gandhi speaking against Aishwarya Rai’s "presence" at the Ram Mandir ceremony on January 22.

Notably, Aishwarya Rai was not present at the consecration of Ram Lalla’s idol. However, her husband Abhishek Bachchan and father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan were present.

Rahul earlier took a dig at them for attending the event, saying, "Did you see the Pran Pratishtha ceremony at the Ram Temple? Was there a single OBC face? There was Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai, and Narendra Modi?"

His remarks came during an address at his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra march in Prayagraj on Sunday. The Ram temple event in Ayodhya was attended by thousands of celebrities, politicians, and dignitaries. However, opposition parties, including the Congress, chose to skip the event, accusing the BJP of exploiting it for political gain.

BJP spokesperson Shehzad Poonawalla also attacked Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for her "silence" on Rahul Gandhi’s "misogynistic" remarks against Aishwarya Rai.

"He (Rahul) makes misogynistic comments on Aishwarya Rai Bacchan who has nothing to do with politics. Why is Priyanka silent? Is she embarrassed too? Why is SP not saying anything against these comments on their own MP’s family ? (sic)". Poonawalla said.
