Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Monday took a swipe at PM Narendra Modi who is on a two-day visit to Varanasi for the inauguration of the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor. He made the remark during an interaction with reporters in Uttar Pradesh’s Etawah.
Akhilesh Yadav, the head of Samajwadi Party, touched a new low while reacting to prime minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Varanasi to inaugurate the Kashi Vishwanath Corridor, a historic moment.
“This is very good. He [PM] can stay there not just one month, but for two or even three months. That is a place to stay. People spend their final days in Banaras,” said Yadav which drew gasp on social media.
While the reference was to the city’s significance in Hindu culture, Akhilesh Yadav’s remarks were in extremely bad taste about the man chosen by the majority of this country.
