Difficult for me to react on remarks of people with narrow mentality: Sonia on Giriraj Singh

New Delhi/Nagpur: Refusing to react on the racist barb against her by Union Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Giriraj Singh, Congress President Sonia Gandhi has simply called him a person with “narrow mentality”. “It’s difficult for me to react on remarks of such people having such a narrow mentality. I cannot comment on such remarks,” said Sonia while refusing to elaborate.

Known for making controversial and bizarre statements, Giriraj had claimed that the white colour of Sonia Gandhi’s skin made her the Congress President.

“If Rajiv Gandhi had married a Nigerian and if she wasn’t white skinned, would Congress accept her as a leader” Singh, the BJP Lok Sabha MP from Bihar’s Nawada constituency, had said on Wednesday in Hajipur, a few kilometres from Patna.
