Hegade hit back at Mr Gundurao with his twitter on the KPCC chief, who is married to a Muslim.
Bengaluru: Discourse on women’s modesty reached its lowest ebb, with union minister of state for Skill Development, Ananth Kumar Hegde Monday in his tweet describing Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president Dinesh Gundu Rao as ‘a guy who ran behind a Muslim lady’.
The twitter war broke out between the duo when, Mr Gundurao tweeted in response to a news report about Mr Hegde courting controversy over his remarks that ‘the hand that touches a Hindu girl’s body should not be there” and asked him to show his contribution as an MP and minister in the state.
Mr Hegade hit back at Mr Gundurao with his twitter on the KPCC chief, who is married to a Muslim.
Seeing this comment, Mr Gundurao responded in a dignified manner stating that Sad to see “@AnantkumarH stoop to such low levels as to bring in personal issues. Guess its his lack of culture. Guess he hasn’t learnt from our Hindu scriptures. Time hasn’t run out, he can still try and become a more dignified human.”
This set off a war of words with several Congress leaders including Congress president Rahul Gandhi standing by Mr Gundurao on Twitter.
