New Delhi, Mar 31 (IBN) : Politicians are continuing to seek mileage out of personal attacks and hate speeches this election season. After Congress candidate Imran Masood's death threats to BJP PM candidate Narendra Modi, now a BJP MLA has hit out at the Gandhi family.
BJP MLA Heeralal Regar, while addressing workers in Rajasthan's Tonk constituency threatened to strip Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi and send them back to Italy if the BJP came to power. "Sonia and Rahul Gandhi should be stripped off their clothes and sent back to Italy," he said.
His comments have come under scrutiny and the Congress party has now complained to the Election Commission. However, speaking to CNN-IBN, Regar said he has been misquoted even as he apologised for his remark. "I have not taken any name. If anyone is hurt by my comments, I apologise," Regar said.
