Bharat Jodo Yatra: A Bharatiya Janata Party leader, Priti Gandhi, was trolled for making a distasteful remark about a photograph of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and actress Poonam Kaur. On the one hand, social media users chastised her severely, while the Congress party also condemned her. The criticism was heaped on the BJP leader for inappropriately commenting on the photo from the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Adding to the BJP leader’s concerns, actress Poonam Kaur came forward and responded appropriately to Priti Gandhi. She explained why Rahul Gandhi had held her hand during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Poonam wrote, “This is absolutely demeaning of you , remember prime minister spoke about #narishakti – I almost slipped and toppled that’s how sir held my hand.”
