Controversial remarks by a Congress leader
Congress leader Udit Raj has made a controversial remark in the wake of Assam Education Minister Himanta Bishwa Sharma's remarks.

The BJP retaliated
BJP leaders did not stop attacking the Congress leader over his remarks. BJP spokesperson Samit Patra said, “This is the type of Gandhi family. Despite the Supreme Court ruling, they said, ‘Lord Sriram does not exist. It's just a fantasy. ” Meanwhile, Priyanka Gandhi said the Kumbh Mela should be stopped. That is why the pure people of the world call Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi 'advantage-badi' Hindus. “
The Congress leader sang the opposite
The Congress leader's tweet on Thursday sparked strong criticism in the political arena. “There is no religion in the state,” he said in an interview with a TV channel. Everyone should be treated equally. No one should be discriminated against. So I mentioned Kumbh Mela as an example.
