UTTRAKHAND: In yet another controversy, the motor mouth Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Sakshi Maharaj has reportedly blamed the Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi for Nepal earthquake that has devastated the country over his alleged beef eating.

“Rahul Gandhi eats beef, and goes to the holy shrine (Kedarnath) without purifying himself. The earthquake was bound to happen,” Sakshi Maharaj was quoted as saying by a newspaper.

The remarks from Sakshi Maharaj came in the backdrop of Gandhi’s recent visit to Kedarnath temple in Uttarakhand. 

The earthquake in Nepal has killed more than 4, 000 people and injured over 7, 000.

The Congress has slammed the BJP over its MP’s comments and sought a strict action from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party President Amit Shah against him.

Reacting to the same, Sushmit Devi, Congress spokesperson stated that PM Modi and Amit Shah should put an end to hate politics that has even degraded Bhagwan Kedarnath.
