On Monday, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said using Lord Ram’s name to create ruckus or nuisance is not acceptable.
“If someone does so byheart then it is good, but if someone is made to chant Jai Shri Ram slogans unwillingly, it’s wrong. What would be the condition of our country if such an environment is created by taking the god’s name and raising slogans,” Gehlot asked in the state Assembly.
While chanting Jai Shi Ram slogan in the House to which opposition reciprocated, the Chief Minister said, “You (BJP) have owned Jai Shri Ram, but members of both ruling party and the opposition were happy when I chanted Jai Shri Ram. It is unfortunate that you start owning him just as you did with Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel and Ambedkar ji. It is wrong”.
