Suar Ki Beemari: Congress leader mocks Amit Shah’s health

NEW DLEHI: A senior Congress leader in Karnataka on Thursday mocked the health condition of BJP President Amit Shah, who has been admitted to the AIIMS in Delhi for treatment of swine flue, and linked it to political developments in the state.

“Amit Shah has got fever due to panic. He panicked as some MLAs (of the Congress) have come back. If he topples the Congress-JD(S) government, then he will have vomitting and loose motions. That is why he got swine fever,” Congress MP B.K. Hariprasad said at a party event here.

His remarks came under attack by the BJP which demanded that the Congress party should make a public apology. Responding to Hariprasad’s jibe, senior BJP leader tweeted:

Another BJP leader and Union minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore tweeted, “Sad but not surprised to see Congress leaders completely abandon decency and dignity. Such cheap statements show the frustration of Congress leadership.”
