Nothing wrong in burning flags sloganeering in J-K: Pappu Yadav

Patna, March 7 (IANS) Controversial Bihar leader Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav on Monday said there was nothing wrong in burning of the Indian flag in Jammu and Kashmir nor was sloganeering against India anti-national.

The five-time MP and the Jan Adhikar Party chief told this to media in Bihar’s Madhepura district while calling upon the poor not to visit temples, saying “all Hindu saints are anti-national”. To avoid exploitation from such saints, they should avoid going to temples, he added.

His comments evoked condemnation from the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders.

Criminal-turned-politician Pappu Yadav’s wife Ranjeet Ranjan is a Congress MP from Supaul in Bihar. Yadav, who was expelled from Rashtriya Janata Dal last year, was close to BJP during 2015 Bihar assembly elections.
