While Congress leaders gave befitted response to the BJP’s alleged remarks. Lovely claimed that the photo was taken before 8 am and he added: “This is symbolic fast from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm. It is not an indefinite hunger strike. This is what is wrong with these (BJP) people, instead of properly running the country; they concentrate on what we eat.”
BJP spokesman Sambit Patra lashes out at Congress and alleged that the party is ‘fooling’ the nation in the name of dalits. He today accused the Opposition party of indulging in divisive politics and “misleading the country with false facts.”
