  • “Amit Shah has contracted suar ki beemari,” Hariprasad had said in connection with the Karnataka political crisis

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has slammed the Congress party over a senior leader’s remark on Amit Shah’s health, daring party president Rahul Gandhi to remove him as the general secretary.

The BJP said that if Congress’s BK Hariprasad was not sacked, it would reflect that his comments were supported by party chief Rahul Gandhi.

Congress leader BK Hariprasad had said that the BJP president’s illness was due to “panic” after some party MLAs in Karnataka returned, alluding to the political crisis in the state.

“Amit Shah has contracted swine flu. It is not normal fever. It is suar ki beemari,” Hariprasad said in connection with the Karnataka political crisis.

He added, “If he [Amit Shah] topples the Congress-JD(S) government, then he will have vomiting and loose motions too,”

BJP spokesperson GVL Narsimha Rao accused the Congress of supporting such “toxic” comments.

“The Congress always has two faces. On one side is Rahul Gandhi and on the other, you have people like Hariprasad with toxic comments. Their behaviour is widely known to the people,” Rao said.

“If they really want to disapprove of his remarks, Rahul Gandhi must sack him or ask him to publicly apologise,” he added.

Amit Shah was admitted to New Delhi’s AIIMS on Wednesday due to swine flu infection.
