Is Draupadi Murmu A Name of Favoritism?

A Verbal battle with Apex Lady

BJP leaders criticize Udit Raj for his statement against the President of India.

Congress leader Udit Raj fuled a huge controversy with his disparaging comments against President Droupadi Murmu. He accused her of being a “Chamcha”.

“No country should get a President like Draupadi Murmu ji. “Chamchagiri” also has its limits. It is said that seventy percent of people eat salt from Gujarat. If you live life by eating salt yourself, you will know,” Udit Raj tweeted.

Meanwhile, amid huge criticism, the Congress leader said his comment has nothing to do with the Congress and he released them in his personal capacity.

“My statement is personal to Draupadi Murmu ji, not on the behalf of Congress party. Murmu ji a presidential candidate and asked for votes in the name of Adivasi. Was there no Adivasi after becoming the President? If there is the President of the country, then also the representative of the tribal. Crying comes when people go to the post in the name of SC/ST and then keep quiet,” he said in a tweet.

Udit Raj’s statement came after President Murmu said that Gujarat produces 76 per cent of the country’s salt and it can be said “the salt produced in the state is consumed by all Indians”.

“India is ranked first in terms of milk production and consumption. White revolution launched by milk cooperatives in Gujarat plays an important role in this. Gujarat manufactures 76 per cent of the country’s salt. (yah kaha jaa sakta hai ki sabhi deshwasi Gujarat kaa namak khate hain),” the President stated on October 3, 2022.

BJP leader Shehzad Poonawalla acusses the grand old party saying that the Congress leaders have a history of insulting people occupying constitutional posts.

He accused Udit Raj of crossing all limits by using such a language against President Murmu.

Tom Vadakkan, another BJP leader, who was earlier associated with the Congress, condemned Udit Raj’s comments and demanded strict action against him. Vadakkan opined that the post of president should always be respected and such comments against the person holding the highest post in the country are not acceptable.
