Jaipur, Feb 03: The Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Monday condemned BJP MP Anantkumar Hegde for reportedly calling Mahatma Gandhi-led freedom movement a "drama", saying the BJP has no regard for the Father of the Nation.

"BJP MP's statement is condemnable. BJP leaders can afford to call freedom movement a drama only because they never fought for India's independence and never made any sacrifices," Gehlot tweeted.
