‘Because Droupadi Murmu is widow, tribal’: Udhayanidhi’s fresh ‘Sanatan’ attack over Parliament

Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin stoked the Sanatan controversy afresh as he said on Wednesday that President Droupadi Murmu was not invited to the new Parliament building but some ‘Hindi actors’ were because Murmu is from a tribal community and a widow. “This is what we call Sanatan Dharma,” Udhayanidhi said after his parallel between Sanatan Dharma and dengue, malaria triggered a major political controversy inviting flak from PM Modi himself. The opposition INDIA bloc too distanced itself from the Sanatan controversy and Tamil Nadu chief minister Stalin cautioned DMK members to steer clear of the row.

Earlier too, Udhayanidhi cited Droupadi Murmu’s example and said she was not invited to the inauguration of the new Parliament building because she is a tribal. His Sanatan like dengue, malaria comment was against caste-based society and not against Hindu religion, he asserted.
