After a 'Hindu girl' remark, Union Minister Anantkumar Hegde has been trolled for dragging a Congress leader’s Muslim wife into a Twitter war.
It all began with Karnataka Congress chief Dinesh Gundu Rao hitting out at Hegde’s on Twitter over his achievements as a minister and an MP. The Congress leader had twitted: “@Anantkumar Wht are ur achievements after becoming a Union Minister or as MP? Wht are ur contributions for Karnataka’s development? All I can say for sure,it’s deplorable tht such people have become ministers & have managed to get elected as MP’s.”
I shall definitely answer this guy @dineshgrao's queries, before which could he please reveal himself as to who he is along with his achievements?— Anantkumar Hegde (@AnantkumarH) January 27, 2019
I only know him as a guy who ran behind a Muslim lady. https://t.co/8hVJ2wQXMU
To which, Hegde made a remark on Rao’s wife.
“I shall definitely answer this guy @dineshgrao's queries, before which could he please reveal himself as to who he is along with his achievements? I only know him as a guy who ran behind a Muslim lady.”
The tweet by the BJP minister was not liked much and he was trolled on social media.
Dear mantri ji @anantkumarhegde Mr.rao @dineshgrao asked about your achievement as a union minister and your contribution to the nation and Karnataka.He didn't ask about your family and your contribution to your fmly. you don't have a concrete answer so you target his family. Wow https://t.co/d2Pu4Eu5wF— Vinod kumarindia (@Vinodku87965010) January 28, 2019
"I only know him as a guy who ran behind a Muslim lady" - this is the pukeworthy language and mentality of the Union Minister of this country.— Pratik Sinha (@free_thinker) January 27, 2019
An there's nothing new about it.
It is an absolute shame that he's a Union Minister of this country. https://t.co/H0Xmb7BWsC
I think the reason Mr. Anantkumar Hegde makes hate speeches is to cover up for his failure as a minister for skills & Entrepreneurship. People end up discussing the hate speech rather than his performance as a minister. https://t.co/Jd6aRhKFiv— Priyank Kharge (@PriyankKharge) January 28, 2019
At a pubic function on Sunday, Hegde had given another shocking statement, he said: “those who touch Hindu girls, their hands should be chopped off. He had also said that communists were like termites in the society.”
