BJP minister uses expletives while campaigning in Delhi

A newly inducted Minister of State in the Narendra Modi government has kicked off a controversy while addressing a gathering in New Delhi embarrassing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

MOS for Food Processing Industries Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti was caught using abusive language, besides claiming that everyone including Muslims and Christians are sons of Ram. She said those who don't believe in this ideology, do not belong to India, while campaigning for the BJP, according to a CNN IBN report.

Questioning voters about their preference of leaders, who would govern them, she asked "Do you want a government of Ramzaadon (followers of Ram) or (those who are illegitimate-born)?," according to NDTV.

A defiant Jyoti also defended her statements saying she was targeting the separatist and anti-national forces and people who indulge in plundering the wealth of the nation and stashing money abroad.

Meanwhile, Jyoti's expletives in her speech while seeking vote for her party, has provided additional ammunitions to the opposition leaders to attack the BJP in view of the upcoming assembly elections in Delhi.

"Using such language shows the class of the BJP and its Ministers," said Aam Aadmi Party leader Mayank Gandhi on his Twitter handle.

Manish Sisodia tweeted saying the language of BJP leaders give the sense of the government that would be formed in the Delhi, if their party voted to power.

Another MOS Giriraj Singh called Arvind Kejriwal a Mayavi Rakshas (devil who changes faces).
