Taking a dig at the Gujarat Tourism ad by the BJP state government, Yadav said on Monday, “Main sadi ke mahanayak se appeal karta hoon ke Gujarat ke gadhon ka prachar mat karein (I appeal to the superstar of the century to not campaign for the donkeys of Gujarat (authorities) ).”
The remark drew sharp criticism from the BJP. Party leader GVL Narsimha Rao said, “Akhilesh Yadav has lost his balance. This comment is a personal attack and his desperation can be seen. It is a very cheap and derogatory remark by the Chief Minister.”
