Italia’s tainted past

From impersonating a cop to threaten a minister, from hurling a shoe at a minister to making PVC bombs for allegedly attacking the BJP, Gopal Italia has been in the news for all the wrong reasons.

Before joining and becoming the head of the Aam Aadmi Party, Italia worked as a clerk in the revenue department following which he became the leader of Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti. 

Italia was back in the news after his two old videos insulting Hindu devotees and Brahmins went viral on social media.

In another video, Italia claimed that rich businessmen loot people by taking money in form of kathas and satsangs.
