BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, on Saturday, did not ignore this stance of Mamata Banerjee and compared her with Pakistani’s Prime Minister Imran Khan, contending that they both did not perform yoga on the International Day of Yoga.
“Even when the whole world celebrated the Yoga Day with enthusiasm, Mamata Banerjee and Pakistan boycotted it. There is no difference between her and the Prime Minister of Pakistan,” said Vijayvargiya.
Vijayvargiya also called Congress president Rahul Gandhi “mentally unsound” for sharing a picture of Army’s dog squad doing yoga along with their trainers, with a caption ‘New India’.
