Tharoor faces flak from BJP leaders for "everyone is naked" jibe at UP CM | Ghanti Bajao

Updated 30 Jan 2019 11:24 PM

 Congress leader Shashi Tharoor fuelled controversy on Tuesday after he took a jibe at Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath and his cabinet, on their holy dip in Sangam at Kumbh Mela in Prayagaraj.

In a sarcastic tweet, Congress MP had said: “everyone is naked in this Sangam”, with a picture of Yogi Adityanath and his cabinet taking a dip.

In an apparent reference to government’s ‘Namami Gange programme’ for cleaning Ganga, Tharoor wrote: “The Ganga has to be clean and the sin is also to be washed. Everyone is naked in this Sangam.” In his words: “Ganga bhi swachh rakhne hai aur paap bhi yahin dhone hain. Iss Sangam me sabhi nange hain! Jai Ganga Maiya.”
