JAIPUR: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath found himself in legal trouble as a right-wing group in Rajasthan has sent a legal notice to Adityanath after calling Lord Hanuman a Dalit.
During a poll rally in Malakheda of Alwar district on Tuesday, Adityanath had said, “Hanuman was a forest dweller, deprived and a Dalit. Bajrang Bali worked to connect all Indian communities together, from north to south and east to west”. He added, “This was his resolve as it was Lord Ram’s wish. Just like him, we should also not rest till we fulfil that wish.”
Rajasthan Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha president Suresh Mishra has now sent a notice to Mr. Adityanath, accusing him of dragging Lord Hanuman’s caste for political gain for the BJP in the State where Assembly polls will be held on December 7. Adityanath’s comments have triggered a political row prompting the Congress to blame the BJP for its “dual face”
