Adhir Ranjan’s ‘rashtrapatni’ comment shameful: Mayawati

Lucknow, ( : Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) President of and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati attacked the Congress party for Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s remarks on President Droupadi Murmu.Mayawati, in a tweet, on Thursday said that the spectacular election of Droupadi Murmu as the first woman of the tribal society to the post of the highest President of India is not liked by many including the Congress party. In this sequence, the objectionable remarks made by Chowdhury are very sad, shameful and highly condemnable.She further commented that the proceedings of Parliament have also been disrupted. It would be appropriate that the Congress party should apologise to the country for this and abandon its casteist mindset. It is noteworthy that Mayawati was the first Opposition leader to support Droupadi Murmu being a tribal woman.(HS)
