New Delhi: After a video surfaced of Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) Gujarat unit president Gopal Italia purportedly mocking Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mother, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday said the people of the state should support the party for this. Will teach you a lesson. It is worth noting that an old video of Italia surfaced on Thursday, in which he can be heard purportedly mocking Prime Minister Modi's 100-year-old mother Heera Ba. In the same video, Italia also allegedly used derogatory words for Modi.


Smriti Irani attacked Kejriwal fiercely

Attacking AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal, Union minister Smriti Irani told reporters on Friday, "If you think abusing the Prime Minister's mother will help you gain political popularity in Gujarat, then you are wrong. For this mistake, Gujarat and Gujarati people will teach you a lesson in the upcoming elections.” Irani alleged that Italia made objectionable remarks at the behest of Kejriwal.


'Insult to Hindu society and women going to the temple'

He claimed that the AAP leader from Gujarat has made several remarks in which he has "insulted" Hindu society and temple-going women. He said making objectionable remarks against 100-year-old Hira Ba by AAP leaders was "totally unforgivable" as he had nothing to do with politics. "Her (Hira Ba) only mistake is that she gave birth to Narendra Modi who is sabotaging your (Kejriwal) politics," Irani said.


BJP leaders are targeting him - Italia

Responding to Italia's claim that BJP leaders were targeting him, citing Patidar community, the Union Minister said that now he is trying to hide under the guise of new excuses. Huh. He said that it shows that AAP leaders are going to play the community card for their political interests in this election. "Arvind Kejriwal can fall further down, no wonder. They are unable to understand that women, especially mothers, are highly respected in Gujarat and in Gujarati society.


'Aam Aadmi Party demolished in upcoming elections'

He claimed that Gujarat and Gujaratis have taken a pledge that they will "demolish" the Aam Aadmi Party in the upcoming elections. Irani said that AAP leaders are making all kinds of rhetoric including against Hindu women and religious institutions in Gujarat so that their politics can shine. It is worth noting that another video of Italia had surfaced in which he can be heard advising women not to go to the temple.


'Now people will do justice'

Sharing Italia's video on Twitter on Thursday, Irani targeted AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying, "Arvind Kejriwal, Gopal Italia, who spoke abusive language with your blessings, is now abusing Heera Ba." I am not expressing any displeasure, I do not want to show how angry Gujaratis are, but know that you have been judged and your party will end up electorally in Gujarat. Now the public will do justice." BJP's IT cell chief Amit Malviya had described Italia as a person of serial indecency. Italia appeared before the National Commission for Women (NCW) on Thursday on the same matter. During this, he had accused the commission's chairman Rekha Sharma of threatening and indecent behaviour.
