Congress slams Sakshi Maharaj for Remarks against Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi, April 27: Reacting to BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj, who blamed Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for massive earthquake in Nepal, the party hit out at the leader.

Congress MP Rajeev Shukla termed the comments of Sakshi Maharaj as stupid. "It is a stupid statement which he (Sakshi Maharaj) has made. We people never put on such allegations. We never said that after BJP has come to power there is incessant rain or earthquake. We never subscribe these statements, nor do we support these statements because these things cannot be linked," Shukla said.

The BJP leaders Sakshi Maharaj and and Sadhvi Prachi landed in controversy for remarks that the earthquake was due to Rahul, recently had visited Kedarnath. Maharaj said that Rahul ate beef and the visited religious shrines without purifying himself. That triggered earthquake in Nepal.
