Former BJP National president Nitin Gadkari kicked off controversy by saying that “there is casteism in Bihar DNA. He, however, soon retracted saying he “meant political DNA” of Bihar.
Gadkari had made the controversial statement this morning at Patna while discussing “caste-ridden” politics of the state. “There is cateism in DNA of Bihar”, he said.
With JD (U) and Congress targeting Gadkari and calling his statement an “insult to Bihar people”, Gadkari said he had meant political DNA and did not mean offence to any one.
