With the approach of the Lok Sabha elections, the verbal feud between members of varied parties is heating up, resulting in several controversial statements. Following the JDS leaders' decision to question the caste of Sumalatha Ambareesh, wife of late former minister Ambareesh, the BJP leaders started questing the caste and nationality of Sonia Gandhi.
Addressing a BJP rally in Ballari, B Sreeramulu questioned the Congress and JDS's double standards on the caste issue. "If Sumalatha doesn't become a Vokkaliga when her marriage to Ambareesh, however, will Sonia become Indian? what's her caste and nationality now?" he questioned.
B Sreeramulu's statement has not gone down well with several. On Thursday, social media was flooded with condemnation for his statement. Meanwhile, the Congress party is probably going to approach the election commission during this regard.
