Akhilesh Yadav takes a Dig at Gujarat, Gets trolled Heavillly on Twitter

Akhilesh Yadav has provoked outrage with his comment on martyrs on a day the killing of a young army officer in Kashmir has led to grief and anger. Asked about soldiers being killed in Kashmir, the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister ended up making the same sort of political statement that he appeared to be denouncing.

“The incidents that are happening right now, there are no answers to it. Somebody’s head has been chopped off, they are being mutilated, why no discussion on that? Soldiers are being beheaded and there is no discussion on that. I have said that Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and south India have had a lot of martyred soldiers, but has any soldier of Gujarat been martyred?” Mr Yadav said on camera, referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state.

He was apparently targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a Gujarat politician whose rise in national politics has been blamed by his detrcators for simultaneous growth of aggressive nationalism.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
