A BJP MP from Assam came under attack on Sunday for comparing Mahatma Gandhi and India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru with garbage. “The Congress has pushed the Nehru-Gandhi garbage into the minds of people over the years and there is now no space for any other theory,” the Lok Sabha member from Jorhat Kamakhya Prasad Tasa said on Saturday at a public rally at Sonari in Sivsagar district.

The Congress demanded the MP’s arrest. Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal was seated on the podium where Tasa was speaking. The Congress in Assam staged state-wide protests on Sunday in protest against the MP and lodged an FIR in a Guwahati police station.

“The MP … described Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi as garbage. Therefore, we seek his immediate arrest and prosecution under the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC),” read the FIR. “Comparing Jawaharlal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi with garbage is an unpardonable offence and we demand his immediate arrest for the crime he has committed,” said Assam Congress leader Ripun Bora.

    Nehru should be converted into a Topi and placed on top of all the COngressis and all the Pseudo Seculars. The great sacrifice that i hear from these people none of whom I believe since Nehru did nothing, did this phony sacrifice done for India or a favor on rest of us for which we have to pay Hafta to Nehru Family. Hasn't 2G, CWG, Helicopter, Coalgate, Submarine scams enough as a subs ute for the Nehru Family Hafta?

      Is it the scheme of things where we see Nehru coming back as a messiah through the body of N D Tiwari, Digvijay Singh, Abhishek Manusinghvi and Shashi Tharoor giving other women their much needed gesture of Hippie Love.

          Talk about nehru who gave bharata ratna for himself. Talk about congress , gandhi and nehru who sidelined all freedom fighters and ensured that there is no other name remembered w.r.t. freedom movement. All politics even in nehru time.

            Nothing criminal about the language or description of opinion about history . It is democracy. Every one can express his or her opinion and indulge in discussions
