New Delhi: Few days after actor Anupam Kher slammed BJP MP Yogi Adityanath for his past comments in an event, the party MP has hit back calling Kher a villain.
Kher hit out at Yogi and Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Sadhvi Prachi saying they should be jailed and thrown out of the party. “There are some people in the party (BJP) who speak nonsense, and ill-behave, whether it is Sadhvi or Yogi…they should be put behind bars, thrown out of the party (…Hain kuch log aise party mein jo bakwas karte hain, chahe wo Sadhvi hon ya Yogi ho, unko andar kar dena chahiye aur unko nikal dena chahiye).”
“But, you can’t play with the entire country and say that we have intolerance here (…magar aap pure desh ke saath khilwad nahin kar sakte ki hamare desh meyn intolerance hai,” he said.
BJP MP Yogi Adityanath and right-wing leader Sadhvi Prachi have courted controversies in the past for their inflammatory statements drawing sharp reactions from several quarters.
“This is a no debate. The rich and the famous are talking of intolerance. If you ask a man on the street, he won’t talk about intolerance. All they want is food two times a day. Those with a champagne glass are only talking about it. Are you living in India or America,” Kher had said.
