BJP slams Congress’s Udit Raj over ‘chamchagiri’ remark against President Murmu | India News

NEW DELHI: BJP leader Shehzad Poonawalla on Thursday took a jibe at Congress after its leader Udit Raj allegedly made derogatory remarks against President Droupadi Murmu.
Udit Raj had accused President Murmu of allegedly doing “chamchagiri” while making controversial remarks about her on Wednesday.
“No country should get a President like Droupadi Murmu ji. Chamchagiri also has its limits. She says 70 per cent of the people eat Gujarat’s salt. She will get to know once she starts living by consuming salt only,” Udit Raj said in his tweet in Hindi.
द्रौपदी मुर्मू जी जैसा राष्ट्रपति किसी देश को न मिले। चमचागिरी की भी हद्द है । कहती हैं 70% लोग गुजरात का नमक खाते…— Dr. Udit Raj (@Dr_Uditraj) 1664990684000
In a strong reaction, Poonawalla lashed out at Congress and asked if the party endorses such an insult to the tribal community. President Murmu belongs to the tribal community.
After Ajoy Kumar called President Draupadi Murmu as evil & then Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary used the term “Rashtrapatni”…— Shehzad Jai Hind (@Shehzad_Ind) 1665024171000
“After Ajoy Kumar called President Draupadi Murmu evil & then Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary used the term “Rashtrapatni” now Congress stoops to a new low! Udit Raj uses unacceptable language for the 1st woman Adivasi President! Does the Congress endorse this insult of Adviasi samaj,” Poonawalla tweeted.
Udit Raj’s remarks came days after President Murmu noted in a civic reception hosted by the Gujarat government on Monday that the state produces 76 per cent of the country’s salt. On a lighter note, she said that “the salt produced in Gujarat is consumed by all Indians.”
