New Delhi: Bharatiya Janata Party MP, Pragya Thakur on Sunday raised doubts about Rahul Gandhi’s patriotism, and said a person “born to a foreigner cannot be a patriot”.
“A person born out of the womb of a foreigner woman can’t be a patriot,” Thakur was quoted as saying by media. She invoked Chanakya to say that only a son of the soil can protect their motherland.
Hitting out at Sonia Gandhi, the BJP MP said patriotism cannot be expected from someone who has citizenship of two nations. “If you have citizenship of two countries, how can you have any patriotic feelings?”
