Cong asks Maya to apologise for remarks on Gandhi

The Congress has demanded an apology from Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for making "derogratory" remarks that Mahatma was a "natakbaaz" (a fake).


"The remarks made by Mayawati about the Father of Nation are highly condemnable. The remarks have hurt millions not only in India but across the world.... I would like to advise her to take back the remarks she made about the apostle of non-violence and should apologise," Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters.


Addressing a meeting of parliament members and legislators of her Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in Lucknow last week, Mayawati allegedly called Mahatma Gandhi a "natakbaaz" (a fake).
