Gaumutra row: Congress chief Acharya Pramod Krishnam has slammed DMK MP DNV Senthilkumar over his ‘Gaumutra’ assertion in Lok Sabha whereas talking about just lately concluded Assembly election leads to 5 states.

“If DMK leaders continue to behave like this and keep talking like this against Sanatan Dharma, then BJP’s flag will be hoisted not only in ‘Gaumutra’ states but also in states with ‘saand’…”

Another Congress chief and Karnataka minister Dinesh Gundu Rao mentioned, “This is basically because BJP is not ruling anywhere in South India today but I do not think I should react to that. It is his opinion…”

Earlier right now, whereas talking on Assembly election outcomes, DMK MP Senthilkumar mentioned in Lok Sabha, “…The people of this country should think that the power of this BJP is only winning elections mainly in the heartland states of Hindi, what we generally call the ‘Gaumutra’ states…”

However, dealing with backlash, the DMK chief in one other assertion mentioned, “I made some statement inside the House. At the time Home Minister & BJP members were there at that time. I have used this before in my Parliament speeches. It was not a controversial statement. If it touches somebody I will try to avoid using it next time. I will use some other words to mention that where the BJP is strong in getting their votes.”

The DMK lawmaker apologised saying, “Commenting on the results of the five recent state assembly elections, I have used a word in an inappropriate way. Not using that term with any intent, I apologise for sending the wrong meaning across.”
