BJP on fresh trouble; Smriti Irani’s photo with the man who called Gauri Lankesh ‘Bitch’ goes viral

Prime Minister Narendra is under constant attack after one of his supporter, who he follows on Twitter, tweeted celebrating the gruesome murder of Journalist Gauri Lankesh. In his infamous tweet against the deceased Gauri Lankesh, Nikhil Dadhich, referred the deceased Journalist as ‘bitch’, who died a ‘dog’s death.’

His tweet, which was originally posted in Hindi, translates to “A bitch died a dog’s death and every puppy is whining in pain.”

Amid the backlash from the internet for his derogatory tweet on the slain Journalist, Union Minister IT and Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad expressed his disgust. He tweeted:

A day later, the central government is now facing a fresh round of embarrassment after the photo of Dadhich with Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani went viral. In the photo, Dadhich is seen standing with the minister.

Though, the minister had condemned the murder of Lankesh on Twitter. She had written, “Condemn killing of senior journalist Gauri Lankesh. Hope speedy investigation is conducted & justice delivered. Condolences to the family.”

Since being widely criticised, Dadhich has removed the reference to PM Modi from his Twitter bio. Contrary to his earlier bio, which said he was proud to be ‘followed Prime Minister Narendra Modi,’ it now merely read ‘Hindu Nationalist.’

Meanwhile, being true to himself, Prime Minister Modi continues to follow him on Twitter. It will be nothing less than a shock if Modi dissociates himself from the vile elements he’s chosen to follow on Twitter.
