New Delhi, May 13: Nitin Gadkari's 'dog' remark may cost him more than just an apology as the Samajwadi Party (SP) is mulling the possibility of taking legal action against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president.
"Nitin Gadkari has used objectionable language against senior leaders like Mulayam Singh and Lalu Prasad. The kind of language used by him shows that though he represents a national party, he has a very narrow minded approach.
"We are seeking legal opinion on the issue and will go to court against him," said SP national spokesperson Mohan Singh.
"We may accept his apology, but what about those millions of dalits and OBCs, whose feelings have been hurt by his comments," he answered to a question on if the party would forgive Gadkari.
To protest against Gadkari's comments, the party is also planning on burning the effigy of RSS.
