Priyanka Gandhi insults Lal Bahadur Shastri, offers used garland on his statue, BJP workers ‘cleanse’ the statue

Priyanka Gandhi removed one of the two garlands that she was wearing and put it on the statue of Lal Bahadur Shastri Ji ending up insulting him.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, General Secretary of Congress for UP-East, is making every effort from visiting temples to going on Ganga Yatra with a hope of helping her brother and Congress President Rahul Gandhi in the upcoming general elections. She has been holding rallies and public meetings to pump some fresh breath in her party in Uttar Pradesh.

However, Priyanka Gandhi’s ignorance of local traditions often becomes visible during her public interaction. During one such public meeting, Priyanka Gandhi embarrassed herself by offering a used garland on the statue of Lal Bahadur Shastri. In a video shared by Union Minister Smriti Irani, Priyanka Gandhi was seen wearing two garlands. She then walked up to the statue of former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri and removed one of the two garlands she was wearing and offers it to Shastri’s statue without even realising that she had insulted Shastri Ji instead of respecting him by offering a used garland on his statue.

In Hindu tradition, garlands made of fresh flowers are offered as a gesture of respect. A garland once offered to someone cannot be reused to offer some else. However, Priyanka did exactly the same thing by offering the garland worn by her to Shastri Ji’s statue exposing her indifference. Tweeting in Awadhi, a dialect spoken in Varanasi, Irani said that Priyanka forgot her limits in offering the used garland on Lal Bahadur Shastri’s statue and did not even realise that she insulted Shastri ji instead.
