Parentage jibe from Dilip
Dilip Ghosh on Friday questioned the parentage of those protesting the Narendra Modi government’s new citizenship regime, a day after winning a second term as the BJP’s Bengal chief and promising to only make more harsh remarks.
The Midnapore MP, who led an Abhinandan Yatra of the BJP in Howrah in favour of the amended citizenship law, made the comment to loud cheers and slogans of “Jai Sri Ram”.
“Amader ma-baap thik achhe, amader chinta nai. Jader ma-baap thik nei, tader chinta achhe (Our parentage is certain, we have no worry. Those whose parentage is not certain, they have to worry),” said Ghosh. “That is why they are misguiding people. Tell them, ‘first rectify your parents, rectify what you say’.”
