Ranchi: Hitting back at Rahul Gandhi’s ‘hum do, humare do’ jibe, the Union minister said the motto was used for family planning and suggested the Congress leader should get married, preferably to a Dalit woman.
“I believe that Rahul Gandhi is a good friend of mine and he is speaking on ‘hum do, humare do’. This motto was used for family planning so if he wants to do ‘hum do, humare do’, then Rahul Gandhi should get married. If he marries a Dalit woman, then he would fulfil the dream of Mahatma Gandhi and help end casteism. This will provide a direction to all youth,” Athawale said, ANI reported.
He also said, “That’s why he should get married and he should marry a Dalit woman. This is my suggestion to him.”
He also said that his Ministry will provide Gandhi a scheme of Rs 2.5 lakh for his inter caste marriage. Last week, Gandhi in Lok Sabha Took the “hum do, humare do” jibe at the government and said the new farm laws brought by the government will lead to “collapse of mandi system and allow unlimited hoarding”.
“Like COVID 19 comes back in a different form, this slogan has come back in a different form. Hum do hamare do. Everyone Knows whose government it is,” he said.
Referring to the family planning slogan of ‘Hum do hamare do’ (we two and our two children), he alleged that the government was being run on this agenda and accused it of promoting “crony capitalism”.
Ramdas Athawale’s video became famous last year in February where he gave a slogan “Go Corona Go” which became viral on social media. Once again, the minister is on top of the headline for his witty remarks, recent being ‘No Corona, Corona No, against Covid-19 variant.
