Madhya Pradesh Congress has demanded an apology from BJP president Nitin Gadkari for his remarks on the IQ levels of Swami Vivekananda and fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim.

Madhya Pradesh Congress has demanded an apology from BJP president Nitin Gadkari for his remarks on the IQ levels of Swami Vivekananda and fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim.

"Gadkari's statement showed that the BJP chief had lost his mental balance after corruption charges were levelled against him," Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Assembly Ajay Singh said in a statement here.

The BJP chief's statement also proves Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh's allegation that the "RSS is in league with fundamentalist organisations."

Addressing an award ceremony in Bhopal on Sunday, Gadkari had said, "As per psychology, if we can compare the IQ level of Swami Vivekananda and that of Dawood Ibrahim, then it could have been almost the same. But Vivekananda used it in nation building, brotherhood and spiritualism, while Dawood used that in excelling in crime world." PTI AS NP RCJ RYS 11061453 NNNN
