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.”

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.

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.”
