New Delhi: BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Sunday questioned Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi`s support for Lokpal Bill.

Rahul Gandhi had yesterday said that the Lokpal Bill was a matter of "national importance" and "will completely transform the issue of corruption." He further urged political parties to support the bill.

However, his support seems to have not gone down well with Naqvi who later took a jibe at the Gandhi scion and said, "Why are you appealing to political parties now? Is it because you are about to go out of power?"

Naqvi also supported BJP president Rajnath Singh`s stand on homosexuality wherein Singh had said that "Gay sex is not natural and we cannot support something which is unnatural".

He was quoted saying, "Rajnath Singh is absolutely correct as our culture doesn’t allow homosexuality." He further added, "The parties supporting it are doing it for different reasons."
