Samajwadi Party on Thursday threatened to move the court against BJP President Nitin Gadkari for his "objectionable" comments against party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad.
"Nitin Gadkari has used objectionable language against senior politicians leaders like Mulayam Singh and Lalu Prasad. The kind of language used by him shows that though he represents a national party, he has a very narrow minded approach...
"We are seeking legal opinion on the issue and will go to court against him," SP national spokesperson Mohan Singh told reporters here.
When told that Gadkari has apologised and withdrawn his remarks, Singh said, "We may accept his apology but what about millions of dalits and backwards whose sentiments have been hurt by his remarks?"
Singh said while RSS calls itself a guardian of Indian culture, a person like Gadkari who is backed by the organisation, has shown his true colours and bias against the two Yadav leaders.
Claiming that the Sangh too was biased against the two Yadavs, he said party workers would burn the effigy of RSS.
"It is unfortunate that the president of a party having stalwarts like Deen Dayal Upadhyay and Atal Bihari Vajpayee has made such remarks. We condemn it," Singh said.
