Google Oneindia News

New Delhi, July 04: The Bharatiya Janata Party on Monday hit back at joint opposition candidate for Presidential polls Yashwant Sinha for his ''rubber stamp Rashtrapati'' ramraks.

BJP national General Secretary C T Ravi said a feeling that an Adivasi woman is not capable of the position, itself depicts one's ''nasty mindset''.

He was reacting to a question regarding Sinha urging BJP-led NDA's nominee for the elections, Droupadi Murmu, who belongs to a tribal community in Odisha, to make an affirmation that she will not be a ''rubber stamp Rashtrapati''.

''Certainly, the country doesn't need a rubber stamp Rashtrapati, but also, in the same way, the mindset of indulging in false propaganda against a self-made Adivasi woman, who has proved her capability, is dangerous. The state of mind that feels oneself alone to be worthy is dangerous,'' Ravi said.

Speaking to reporter, he said, ''Murmu, an Adivasi woman has already proved her capabilities, as the Governor of Jharkhand, as a minister and MLA in Odisha and as a lecturer in a college. A feeling that the Adivasi woman is not capable for the position itself depicts one's nasty mindset.''

Murmu will be visiting Karnataka on July 10 to seek votes, Ravi said, as he also stated that based on the current numbers, her victory is certain in the July 18 presidential polls.

On Sunday, Yashwant Sinha had urged his rival and NDA's candidate for presidential polls, Droupadi Murmu to make an affirmation that she will not be a rubber stamp Rashtrapati.
