Bengaluru: Karnataka BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel on Tuesday stoked a controversy by stating that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is a drug peddler

Nalin Kumar said, “Who is Rahul Gandhi? I am not saying it. Rahul Gandhi is a drug addict and drug peddler. It had come in media. You can’t even run the party.”

After the remarks by Nalin Kumar Kateel, State Congress president DK Shivakumar took to Twitter again and sought an apology from the BJP for the abusive and unparliamentary remarks.

“Yesterday I said I believe we should be civil and respectful in politics, even to our opponents. I hope the BJP agrees with me, and will apologise for their state president’s abusive and unparliamentary remarks against Shri Rahul Gandhi,” he wrote.

Two days ago a tweet in Kannada, terming Prime Minister Narendra Modi as an illiterate, from Karnataka Congress flared a political row. DK Shivakumar later announced that the controversial tweet on PM Modi has been removed by the party’s social media team.

The Opposition party wrote in Kannada, “Congress built schools but Modi never went to study. Congress even set up schemes for adults to learn, Modi didn’t learn there too. Even though begging is prohibited, people who are lazy have made the country’s people beggars. The country is suffering because of #angoothachhaapmodi.”
