Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury is facing severe backlash from the BJP for remarks calling the President of India ‘Rashtrapatni’. Now Uttar Pradesh Yogi Aditya Nath has come up in support of the President, claims the remark was indecent and insulting to Constitution, women & tribal community. 

UP CM says, "Indecent remark of Congress MP for President is condemnable. It's an insult to Constitution, women & tribal community. In a way, it's an insult to the nation too. I condemn the MP & Congress. They should apologise to citizens."

 

 

Adhir Ranjan clarified on his remarks and said it was ‘just a mistake’, and said that he will personally meet President Droupadi Murmu and apologise to her if she felt bad. 

The term was used only once by mistake and he never intended any disrespect to the president, Chowdhury said as the BJP stalled both houses of Parliament and asked Congress president Sonia Gandhi to apologise to the nation.
