BJP’s Amit Malviya Slammed on Social Media For Comparing Hardik Patel With Jawaharlal Nehru
New Delhi, November 16: In a major goof up by Bharatiya Janata Party IT cell head Amit Malviya, he tweeted a picture collage of India’s Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru embracing his sister and niece. “It seems Hardik has more of Nehru’s DNA, contrary to what Shaktisinh Gohil claimed,” Malviya tweeted linking Patidar leader Hardik Patel alleged sex CD to Nehru’s DNA
In an attempt to defame Nehru, Malviya forgot to check the pictures and probably posted them in a hurry. Two of the pictures in the collage (Photo 1 and 3), Nehru is seen embracing his sister.

In picture 5, Nehru is congratulating Mrinalini Sarabhai after the Manushya performance in Delhi in 1948. Mrinalini’s mother was a freedom fighter and a politician who was close to Nehru. Even Mrinalini’s father family was closely associated with Nehru.
In the last picture, Nehru is being given a kiss by his niece Nayantara Sehgal.
Other photos in the collage include Edwina Mountbatten (Photo 2), John F. Kennedy’s wife Jacqueline Kennedy (Photo 6), Mrs Simon, the wife of the British Deputy High Commissioner (Photo 7), and Edwina Mountbatten’s 18-year-old daughter Pamela Mountbatten (Photo 8).
In the photo 4, Nehru is seen smoking but the relevance of the picture is not established.
Senior Congress leader and Gujarat MLA Gohil hit back at Malviya tweeting, “Feeling sorry for sisters and daughters of those who can stoop to this level of public discourse. My sanskaar does not permit me to counter this.”

Even the social media did not take this lightly and slammed Malviya.
Hardik is embroiled in a controversy after a video clip in which a man resembling the Patidar leader is seen relaxing on a bed with two men and a woman went viral.
