Bhubaneswar: Congress personality and former Union apportion Mani Shankar Aiyar on Saturday dubbed as “rubbish” a BJP MP Subramanian Swamy’s call for “rewriting” Indian story to applaud a togetherness and pronounced a nation should instead applaud a diversity.
Aiyar was participating during a Kalinga Literary Festival along with Swamy, who in his keynote residence during a event, and on a sidelines, advocated recasting a country’s history.
“Rubbish. Who stops him from rewriting a history? He (Swamy) customarily talks rubbish. He comes here and creates a domestic speech. Did we contend anything domestic in my intervention?” Aiyar told reporters while replying to a doubt on Swamy’s plea.
Referring to Swamy’s debate during a eventuality where Aiyar was also on a dais, a Congress personality said, “It is a literary festival. He does not understand. If he does not know a definition of this festival, how can we design him to know history?”
On Swamy’s explain that all Indians have one DNA, Aiyar said, “And, what does he meant that we are one people? We are unapproachable of a diversity. Why annul that diversity?”
Noting that one can't get togetherness out of togetherness in a nation like India, Aiyar said, “We contingency applaud a farrago instead of sanctimonious that a DNA is same everywhere.”
Swamy in his keynote debate during a festival pronounced a nation contingency applaud a togetherness notwithstanding several bids to mangle it up. “We contingency applaud a togetherness of a nation as it has postulated and remained one notwithstanding pressure,” he said.
“God knows that laboratory he (Swamy) went to. It contingency be as foolish a laboratory as a university that he went,” Aiyar remarked referring to his explain during a debate that he had organized a DNA exam of Raj Thackerey of Mumbai and a taxi-driver from UP during a laboratory.
Swamy claimed that a DNA of both Thackerey and a cab motorist was a same and resolved that all Indians have one DNA and therefore are one people.
