There is a political row in the country over the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi. Holding him guilty of making defamatory comments, a court convicted Rahul Gandhi and slapped him with a jail term. The Court gave him one month time to appeal the judgement. But the Parliament disqualified him and the Congress is seeing this as a political row.
Adding fuel to this, a BJP Lok Sabha member made some objectionable comments about the Gandhis. Using the popular quote of the famous philosopher and advisor Chanakya, the MP made some shocking comments about Rahul Gandhi and attacked him.
BJP MP Sanjay Jaiswal, who participated in the protest held by the party against Rahul Gandhi's comments used Chanakya's quote and asked if a person born to a foreign woman can be a patriot. He said that the quote of Chankya reminds him of today's scenario. "A person born to a foreign woman can never be a patriot," the MP said.
Sonia Gandhi, the mother of Rahul is from Italy. However, she became a big woman leader in the country and became the longest-serving president of the Indian National Congress. Until 2014, the party was in power with Sonia Gandhi as the chief of the party.
Whenever the BJP wants to attack Rahul Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi, the party leaders talk about the Italy connection of Sonia Gandhi and target the family on this. In the past few years, we have seen this many times.
Yet again, the BJP used this. Recently, another Member of Parliament used the same attack against Rahul Gandhi. Whenever they had to target him the party leaders use the jibe. No one understands what issue the BJP has with the Italy connection of Sonia Gandhi. People in India accepted her, but the BJP is not happy with this.
