Referring to the suspended leader Nupur Sharma, he said a BJP spokesperson spoke nonsense and the country’s delegates had to apologise for it.
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Sunday launched a stinging attack on the BJP over the Prophet Muhammad row saying why should the country apologise for the party’s mistake. Referring to the suspended leader Nupur Sharma, he said a BJP spokesperson spoke nonsense and the country’s delegates had to apologise for it.
“One BJP spokesperson (Nupur Sharma) spoke nonsense & our delegates/ambassadors apologised in other countries. Why should the country apologise when BJP has done something wrong: Telangana CM KCR,” he was quoted as saying by the news agency ANI.
Nupur Sharma had made the objectionable remark against the Prophet during a television debate on the Gyanvapi row. She was suspended from the party’s primary membership after a bunch of Muslim countries raised official objection to her comments. The Centre had said those were not the views of the Indian government but that of what it called fringe elements.
