Congress demands Katheria's sacking over alleged hate speech at VHP event

Congress leader PL Punia further accused Katheria of spreading `communal poison`, stating that his offence is `unpardonable`.

New Delhi: The Congress on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sack Minister of State for Human Resource Development (HRD) Ram Shankar Katheria for allegedly participating in a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) event in which Muslims were described as `Rakshasas` and were warned of a `final battle`.

Congress leader PL Punia further accused Katheria of spreading `communal poison`, stating that his offence is `unpardonable`.


"Katheria ji is not just an MP, but he is a part of the cabinet. He has taken an oath of office. But the kind of communal poison he is spreading, it is unpardonable. He should not be in the cabinet any more. We would like tell the Prime Minister that such a person should be sacked. There would be discussions on this in both the House," he told ANI.
