“Shocking to see such a derogatory description of Raksha Khadse, BJP MP from Maharastra on the official site of the BJP.

Many Netizens later pointed out that the entire fiasco was the result of a discrepancy caused by Google translate.

Raksha Khadse’s constituency–Raver– is named right after her name. However, when you translate the contents of the website into Hindi, the word ‘Raver’ gets translated into ‘homosexual’. Raver is a city in Jalgaon district of Maharashtra.

“Somewhere google made a translation and it was mistaken, didi also make some spelling mistake in a rush to search false news always. #hatred,” pointed out one Chirag on Twitter. Check out Twitter reactions below:

Notably, Raksha Khadse represents the Raver Lok Sabha seat in the house. She is the daughter-in-law of NCP leader Eknath Khadse.
