Twitterati have slammed BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj for his statement claiming the Nepal earthquake was caused by 'beef-eating' Rahul Gandhi's visit to Kedarnath temple
Known for making controversial statements, BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj has once again stirred a hornet's nest by claiming that the Nepal earthquake has been caused by 'beef-eating' Rahul Gandhi's visit to Kedarnath temple.
Speaking to media in Haridwar, Sakshi Maharaj reportedly said that since Rahul Gandhi went to the holy shrine without purifying himself, the earthquake was bound to happen.
VHP functionary Sadhvi Prachi also made a similar remark saying, “Whenever Rahul Gandhi visits a place, he brings along destruction. During his Uttarakhand visit earlier, there was devastation. Now he has caused an earthquake.”
Of course, this statement made 'Sakshi Maharaj' a hot topic on Twitter, with Twitterati slamming the leader for his bizarre assertion.
