Amit Shah Calls Gandhi ‘Chatur Baniya', Congress Demands Apology

BJP Chief Amit Shah said that Mahatma Gandhi was a ‘chatur baniya’ making reference to the mercantile caste system. Shah also said Gandhi advised dissolution of the Congress after Independence.
Congress took strong exception to these comments saying they were an ‘insult’ to the father of the nation and demanded an apology from the BJP president as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
